Celebrate Cayman with dinner

| 20/11/2018

CNS Local Life(CNS Local Life): As a part of the 60th anniversary of the Cayman Islands Coat of Arms, Celebrate Cayman is encouraging people to host “Beloved Table Dinners” where they can talk about their collective vision for the country and the well-being of all of those who call the Islands home.

In a Celebrate Cayman press release, deputy executive chairman Marzeta Bodden explained, “With the Beloved Table Dinners, we are inviting the community to join us in bringing this practice of dining with purpose to life across our Islands.

“We want people to come together for a meaningful conversation about the Cayman Islands’ future, while enjoying delicious, local food.”

The dinner is being held to honour Cayman Thanksgiving, and is presented in partnership with Cayman Cabana and Foster’s Food Fair.

Members of the public can participate by hosting their own event or attending the farm-to-table dinner at Cayman Cabana on Thursday, 29 November at 6:30pm. The menu will feature a four-course Cayman Islands-inspired meal, followed by live entertainment.

Hosts can also make their own meals, or order a special “Dinner-in-a-Box” prepared by Foster’s. The dinner boxes feature a three-course meal that includes local favourites like Cayman-style beef and cassava cake.

To host a Beloved Table Dinner, whether at the farm-to-table event or at home, register a table and download the Table Host Toolkit, Celebrate Cayman said in the press release. The toolkit includes hosting tips and sample invitations, as well as providing the “six big questions” that will help to spark dinner conversation.

Hosts are encouraged to take notes during the discussion, and after the dinner is complete submit their feedback to Celebrate Cayman by Friday, 14 December. Once all the feedback has been received the insights will be compiled in a report and sent directly to dinner hosts and be made available to the wider community.

“Our hope is that ideas sparked at these dinners will translate into meaningful collaborations in the months ahead. Beyond that, a Beloved Table Dinner is an opportunity for people to get to know each other — to create and share ideas, expand networks, and be part of a national conversation,” said Bodden.
