10 Fun Photos From Barbados's First Ever Food Festival

With their scrumptious eats, entertaining demos, and celebrity chefs, it's hard not to enjoy a food festival. However, what I love most about attending culinary events are the little details and unforgettable moments. For example, at the Food and Wine and Rum festival in Barbados, while waiting to speak with Chef Tim Love, I looked down at the grilling demo he was setting up and noticed his knife. Isn't it hysterical that Tim Love's knife is from Guy Fieri's Knuckle Sandwich line?!

I've never seen so many pots of deep-frying fish. It seemed like they were everywhere.

This plate of pasta was created by Ming Tsai. First he cooks the pasta, then he drains it, and sets it aside while he makes the sausage, black bean, and broccoli sauce. It's an interesting technique for only dirtying one pot.

This shot perfectly illustrates how big of a star, Marcus Samuelsson, winner of Top Chef Masters Season 2, is.

The pioneer of nose-to-tail cooking, Fergus Henderson, compared being a chef to being a Jedi knight: "When you cook, you have to feel the force."

One of Henderson's most famous recipes is roasted bone marrow with parsley salad. He showed the small audience how easy it is to make.

Henderson's bone marrow was such a big draw that even Ming Tsai ran up to snap a quick photo of it.

You know you're sitting at a table of food bloggers when everyone is snapping photos of their food instead of eating it!

I can now cross "see a cow's heart be cooked" off my bucket list!

The best thing I ate was a fried fish sandwich from this small seaside shack, Coz. The sandwiches are renowned across the island of Barbados, and both locals and tourists flock to the stand for a quick and affordable bite.

How could you not be happy at a food festival with this ocean for a backdrop?!
