Curated Culinary Events

The Loren at Pink Beach's annual Guest Chef Series, an initiative started in 2021 to showcase Bermudian ingredients through the lens of internationally-acclaimed chefs, will return with a line-up of travel-worthy talent. Qualifying Chefs must be Michelin starred, James Beard Award winners or a TV Personality in order to participate and to bring a unique culinary experience to guests. The Guest Chef Series is an opportunity to feature a selection of ingredients that the island of Bermuda produces. This year confirmed Chefs to-date include Ryan Hardy, Einat Admony, Kelsey Barnard Clark, Leah Cohen, Sujan Sarkar, Belinda Chang & Sarah Grunenberg, Eric Adjepong, Anita Lo, Dale Talde, and Edward Lee. Participating Chefs go beyond the kitchen while on the island and connect with the youth of Bermuda through cooking classes and motivating talks. Proceeds from the series help benefit The Loren Roots Imperative, a non-profit created to help offset the carbon footprint of development.
