Restorative Rum with Bar Chef Adam Seger
Imagine a lineup of Cayman rums, like Governor's Reserve and Tortuga, with a few off island favorites, like Havana Club and Ron Zacapa. Then get Chef Adam Seger to provide a guided tasting of each one while lounging on the lush palm studded terrace of 7 Restaurant, poolside at the Ritz-Carlton. So why exactly would rum be considered restorative? The answer lies in Seger's fresh made bitters and extracts derived from tropical herbal infusions. Always taking a chef's approach at the bar, currently Nacional 27, Seger is also the guy who founded and still owns Sour Mash Bourbon Bread Company, which produces gourmet bread, biscuit and pancake mix from spent Bourbon mash.
The 2014 Cayman Cookout takes place January 16-19 and will include chefs Anthony Bourdain, Eric Ripert, and José Andrés. There are many packages available with prices ranging from $899 to $2,709, as well as tickets for individual events ranging from $68 to $700.
