Culinary delights from around the world will take center stage on June 18 when St. Ignatius holds its first International Food Festival in Loyola Hall and the courtyard.
The festival runs from 5–8 p.m., and in addition to the food, there will be entertainment by Isadora Ferrao and Glen Scott, and the St. Ignatius School Jazz Band, among others.
Caribbean, Asian, Indian, Mexican, Spanish, North American, African, and European dishes will be on offer.
“With Cayman having so many people from all over the world, this will be a wonderful opportunity to sample a variety of foods at a very affordable price,” said Community Liaison Coordinator Jeremy Rice. “The different foods available should have something to suit everyone’s needs.”
The event is the last major fundraiser for St. Ignatius’s new Adoration Chapel. Construction is scheduled to start this month. The new chapel, designed by Elie Kozaily of Kozaily Designs, will be open from 6 a.m. to midnight and will offer a place for quiet prayer and meditation.
Tickets to the festival are $12 and are available from the church office by calling 949-6797, and from volunteers and committee members. The ticket price includes three samples of cuisine, as well as a dessert. Drinks and additional food will be available for purchase; takeout is also available, and there will be raffle prizes on the day.
