About The St. Croix Food & Wine Experience
The St. Croix Food & Wine Experience started with a one-night event, A Taste of St. Croix, 14 years ago. With tickets selling out in 20 minutes, new events were added and, in 2008, the week of food and fun was named the St. Croix Food & Wine Experience. Events include a food and drink filled golf tournament, a friendly cooking competition with celebrity chefs, elegant wine dinners featuring guest chefs and winemakers, kids cooking class, and more. Named one of the top 10 international food and wine events by Forbestravel.com, celebrity chefs and wine makers from all over the world support the St. Croix Food & Wine Experience by sharing their time and talents. In addition to preparing amazing culinary experiences, guest chefs teach a class at the St. Croix Educational Complex, a public high-school. This special collaboration has led to the development of a Culinary Internship Program that recruits St. Croix youth for annual spring internships at participating guest chefs' establishments. The series of events raise funds and awareness for the St. Croix Foundation, a community non-profit that focuses on education, community revitalization, and economic development as well as public safety and fiscal sponsorship.
