Peter Island Resort & Spa offers a 2:1 guest/staff ratio, an Ayurvedic seaside spa, five pearl-white beaches and unspoiled landscapes—and it’s steeped in pirate lore. If that’s not enough to lure you away to paradise, the largest private island in the British Virgin Islands is now cooking up an intimate culinary adventure for 10 couples or 20 individuals at a time. Guests will get up close and personal with Peter Island’s talented on-site chef Lisa Sellers while also learning tricks of the trade from a visiting guest chef—culinary artists like TV sustainability guru Christopher Ivens-Brown and corporate executive chef of Norwegian Cruise Lines Jason Drysdale.
The program includes private cooking classes in a breathtaking villa called Falcon’s Nest, as well as a private boat tour to Paraquita Bay, a working agricultural farm where they will select local ingredients for an evening feast. “We have people coming from all over the world to attend these events and we want to create an unforgettable experience for them,” says Sellers. Prices for the event start at $575 per person or $1,150 per couple based on a fivenight stay (not including accommodations).
