CELEBRITY CHEF IN ANTIGUA Tuesday 14th March 2023
When celebrity chef Ameera Muhammed—the food alchemist, private chef, and winner of The Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen—visited the luxe, all-inclusive Pineapple Beach Club Antigua, she had two revelations. First, Chef Ameera was blown away by the freshness and diversity of the food.
At Pineapple Beach Club, Chef Ameera was inspired to celebrate both the freshness of Caribbean produce and the cultural richness of the African diaspora. “I decided to create a meal that encompassed West Africa with the Caribbean, with a little sprinkle of Los Angeles, because that is my home,” she explains. “I wanted to tell the story of how we’re connected through food.”
After visiting local farms, she designed a six-course immersive dining experience starting with an amuse-bouche of butter poached lobster, followed by a plant-based conch salad made with hearts of palm, an arugula salad, and a soursop sorbet intermezzo. Then came the main event: an entrée of grilled spiced fish in a blend of Ghanian red pepper and local Antiguan jerk sauces, and, for dessert, a raw key lime coconut cream mousse that, she says, “is vegan, sugar-free, raw, it’s good for you, and it’s a flavor bomb!”
