As part of the inaugural British Virgin Islands Wine & Food Festival, Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina hosts the formal Wine Dinner Series, Oct. 31-Nov. 3, highlighting the culinary skills of some renowned chefs and personalities, each of whom will oversee the preparation of their courses, including Top Chef competitor Jennifer Carroll. Scrub Island has deals available for four- and five-night VIP packages built around the festival, with rates starting at $782, allowing guests to take part in all activities at Scrub Island and the nearby grand-tasting village at Nanny Cay Resort Beach.

Joining Carroll in the line-up of nightly featured chefs in the wine dinner series are Francois Payard, a James Beard Pastry Chef of the Year winner; Cesare Casella, dean of Italian studies at the International Culinary Center; Roberto Leoci, named one of America’s top chefs in the Best Chefs America guide; Scrub’s executive chef David Pugliese; and Imran Ashton and Travis Phillips.

A highlight of the series is a collaborative dinner Nov. 2 with five chefs teaming up to create a five-course dinner at Scrub’s Caravela restaurant. Individual tickets for each event range from $150-$200 per plate. If you want to do it up big, and have $4,200 for the night, they’ll host up to 24 guests for a private dining experience at the Candle Room in Caravela.
