It is no coincidence that this is also St Andrews Day in Scotland – the date was chosen deliberately due to the long association between Barbados and Scotland. There are many, many connections between the two. Not least a “Scotland district” with a 900 ft. mountain, a St Andrews Parish and a St Andrews Church. And in the emblem of Barbados, a slave's hand holding up the crossed sugar canes in the shape of the St Andrews Cross.
It has been a year of celebration of history and culture in Barbados, and Chef Paul Wedgwood took part of the annual Barbados Celtic Festival as Head Chef in May. Scottish Television filmed the festival and a unique People's History programme all about the descendants of the Scots who still live on the island, descendants of servants purged from Scotland in the 1700s to work in servitude in the sugar industry.
To mark the occasion Wedgwood the Restaurant will be hosting this special dinner on St Andrews Day to celebrate 50 years of Barbados independence.
The tasting menu will be £40 per head, with very limited spaces so please call or email to book.
