THE PEPPERPOT DIARIES RUM SHOP
Monday 25th March 2024

 

Explore a fusion of culture and cuisine as Andi Oliver’s best-selling cookbook, The Pepperpot Diaries, is transformed into a festival of food, mixology, and culture in a unique and immersive 100-day experience on the twin-island of Antigua and Barbuda.

Details have been announced for the inaugural Pepperpot Rum Shop pop-up experience in the historic Fort James area of Antigua. The collaboration between celebrity Chef Andi Oliver, the Treehouse Beach Club and the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority launches on 8th May.

Over 100 sun-soaked days, the Pepperpot Rum Shop will showcase a melting pot of delicious food, drinks and iconic cultural touchstones inspired by Andi’s recipes and Antiguan heritage. Set in a prime location at one of Antigua’s newest beachfront venues, the Treehouse Beach Club, the launch also coincides with the vibrant Antigua and Barbuda Restaurant Week (5th-19th May) which attracts food lovers and travellers from around the world. These innovative island experiences will be a true celebration of Caribbean gastronomy and culture.

Inspired by some of the dishes created for Andi’s successful London restaurant Wadadli Kitchen, and Andi’s touching foodie memoir, Pepperpot Diaries, visitors will be treated to some of Andi’s most celebrated dishes, like chocolate curried goat, alongside some innovative new recipes created for the event based on the availability of locally sourced ingredients.

Andi says, “I’m so thrilled to be showcasing some exciting recipes as part of Pepperpot Rum Shop on the stunning twin island of Antigua and Barbuda. Caribbean food hasn’t been codified in quite the same way as French and Italian and yet there are more than 5 ways you can make rice and peas, countless recipes for BBQ chicken and at least three different kinds of pepperpot! I can’t wait to share some of the dishes inspired by friends, family and my Antiguan heritage.”

The highly anticipated T20 CRICKET WORLD CUP will also be taking place during the Pepperpot Rum Shop 100 days. Antigua and Barbuda are proud to announce that it will host the second-highest number of matches among all hosting venues, with a total of 8 action-packed games scheduled.

As part of the celebrations, The Pepperpot Rum Shop will be setting up a dynamic location where cricket fans can come together to soak up the energy and enjoy a variety of activities. Adding to the excitement, the legendary West Indies captain Sir Richie Richardson will be joining the festivities as an ambassador, engaging with fans and participating in various activities throughout the Pepperpot Rum Shop.

The Pepperpot Rum Shop 100 Days will also include a curated programme of events including film, wellness, art, and music. This not-to-be-missed event is perfect for independent travellers, digital nomads, families’ foodies, and all those looking to dive headfirst into a truly authentic and incomparable Antigua and Barbuda experience.
