    Meeting of Minds II: Culinary Fusion Expo to showcase Grand Bahama's best!

    Freeport, Bahamas - Grand Bahamas hottest chefs, caterers, mixologists and restaurants are being invited to showcase at the second annual Meeting of Minds expo focusing this year on 'culinary fusion'.

    The Meeting of Minds II: Culinary Fusion Expo will be held in November 9th at the Canal House, Pelican Bay Hotel and will provide a platform to bring together the island's diverse food and beverage industry, providing the ultimate venue to promote products and/or services.

    "Grand Bahama tourism relies heavily on the culinary experiences we provide, and part of that is our food quality and presentation, and courteous service," said Sean Johnson II, the creative director of Meeting of Minds. "We want Grand Bahama businesses to show us what they've got!"

    Food lovers will get to experience cuisine from some of Grand Bahama's hottest chefs and cooks, some preparing dishes perhaps never seen, heard of or even thought of before. The Culinary Fusion Expo will also feature the leading beverage suppliers and manufacturing companies in The Bahamas. Visitors will have access to premium spirits showcasing a variety of beverages ranging from rum, wine, beer, natural juices and smoothies, milk-based beverages, coffee based beverages, all to enhance the experience associated within Grand Bahama's Food and Beverage industry.

    "We are looking for any persons who are involved in the food and beverage industry in all its many facets," said Johnson. "Building on the success of last year's event, which focused on the arts and fashion, this year it's all about things that are 'yummy for the tummy.'

    Johnson is encouraging growers, manufacturers, bakeries, ice cream parlors and cafés, food and beverage product providers, event and catering companies, meat and fish distributors, hotel organizations, financial institutions, packaging supply companies, shipping and transportation companies, social organizations, and all related ministries and government institutions that touch upon this vast area to come out.

    "Anybody, big or small, who sees themselves, or their business associated with excellence and top class service, will find this the perfect venue to further establish their brand," said Johnson. Many local companies have already signing up. "We are excited to have businesses such as Flying Fish Modern Seafood, Sweet Affairs, and Red Beard's Pub on board for this year's event, just to name a few."

    "This is a chance for everyone to experience the various dining and catering options, and maybe even find the perfect compliment to an upcoming wedding, office or Christmas party," said Johnson.
