The Royal Cayman Islands Police is
the latest group of civil servants to benefit from the Lighthouse Restaurant’s
free monthly cooking classes for civil servants. The class, presented by Remy
Azavedo, the executive chef at the restaurant, showed the attendees how to prepare
a succulent three-course meal, consisting of a lobster bisque appetiser, a main
course of grilled New York steak with wild mushroom sauce and a dessert of
assorted berries with warm chocolate sauce.
“We have been giving free monthly
cooking classes for Cayman island schools for the last two years, and since the
downturn in our economy I started this programme last year for our civil servants
in appreciation of their dedicated hard work,” said Chef Remy.
The class takes place in the
restaurant’s studio kitchen, which has room for 12 participants. According to
Chef Remy, the class is a very hands-on experience for the participants, who
get to enjoy the fruit of their labour after the class.
Blackbeard’s and Jacques Scott support the classes by sponsoring the
ingredients and wine.
According to Chef Remy, the civil
servants involved in the classes have certainly appreciated the programme.
“The response has been very good.
So far I have done the Ministry of Education, Immigration Department, George
Town Hospital, Early Intervention Programme and the RCIPS, to name a few. I
plan to do all the civil servants departments and would encourage the department
heads to contact me to secure their place for this free, fun cooking experience,”
