Guest Chefs, Shorne Benjamin January 2016.
Shorne was originally from Saint Lucia, now resident in New York City. His professional career catapulted after graduating from the prestigious French Culinary Institute, New York. He has since worked alongside renowned Master Chef Jean George at the popular ABC Restaurant, NYC; alongside James Jermyn at the award-winning restaurant Maloney & Porcelli and at the well-known Lower East Side NYC contemporary restaurant Falai. These experiences allowed him to explore and expand his innate culinary gifts and each helped to form the vision to establish his own identity in the dynamic realm of culinary artistry.
His career highlights also include being featured at the Annual “Taste of the Caribbean” festival in Montreal, Canada, where he presented 5-star culinary creations. In addition, Chef Shorne has previously served as Executive Chef for the Annual Rum and Rhythm Benefit hosted by the Caribbean Tourism Organization in New York.
Last year Chef Shorne had the privilege to represent St. Lucia in the 11th International Iron Chef Competition in Toronto, Canada.

Opened in 1894 and still occupying the original orange-roofed building, this market in St Lucia’s capital is the island’s largest and loudest.

Stock up on island spices (star anise, mace, cinnamon); breadfruit, bananas, and other tropical fruits accompanied by our Cap Maison chef.
