Photos: Festival Opens With Canapé Competition

March 17, 2015

[Updated with video] The City of Hamilton kicked off the fourth annual City Food Festival last night [March 16], with local chefs competing in a canapé competition, hosted at Bermuda Gas and including prizes for the event’s top chefs.

Speaking at a launch event held last, Bermuda Gas General Manager Judith Uddin said, “I am personally delighted to welcome back the City of Hamilton to the Annual Food Festival Show. We’re hosting two events here, one on Monday and one on Wednesday, and we’re sponsoring the week-long event.”

“We’re very excited and I know the Bermuda Gas team is delighted to host this event again. We are giving away great prizes to the chefs and we have door prizes. It’s a very exciting event and we foodies can’t wait to taste the chefs’ dream dishes.”


The Chef Competition features two preliminary rounds, with the opening round taking place yesterday [Mar 16] and the second round set for March 18, both at Bermuda Gas. All chefs are to prepare three distinctly different canapés from a box of ingredients.

Each chef’s name will be randomly drawn from a box for selection, with a maximum of five chefs participating per night. A winner from each night will be selected, with that chef advancing to the finals, set to take place at the Street Festival on March 21, 2015.


Following the chef’s competition, the Goslings Wine Tasting will take place on March 20 at the Gosling’s Wine Cellar, with the $100 tickets including a four piece Riedel stemware set. The event will then move to the City Hall Car Park on March 21, where the street festival will take place, featuring almost two dozen restaurants, caterers, and food related companies.

There will be multiple food demonstrations and fun-filled Bermuda food dish competitions for the public to participate in, as well as the Chef Competition finals taking place live. Tickets for all events are available online at
