Since it's always been a destination for food and wine enthusiasts, with the arrival of globally experienced Chef Juan Bochenski and his newly created menus for Cap Juluca's dining venues, travelers have even more delightful culinary experiences to look forward to. And, the resort has added new, exciting food-centered activities to its weekly line-up.
Here's what's new and cooking:
Spice It Up at Cap Juluca
Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
A small group of guests can participate in an interactive spice experience at Spice restaurant led by Chef Bochenski. The chef believes strongly in the magic of spices in the kitchen, so he'll talk about Caribbean spices – their history, flavors and how they grow. Participants will smell and taste an array of aromatic spices and sample some spicy dishes. Then, they'll concoct their own recipe and custom spice blend, which will be stored in a tin to take home, along with chef recommendations for use. Another souvenir from the session is three housemade spice blends in four ounce tins complete with recipes – compliments of the chef. $50 per person for the Spice It Up at Cap Juluca Session
Offered daily through August
Fishing enthusiasts can arrange to bring their prize local catch-of-the-day Anguillian fish from their early morning island fishing trip back to Chef Bochenski's kitchen. He'll prepare their foraged catch for them to enjoy for dinner at Pimms, along with a locally inspired accompaniment. $45 per person for Catch-of-the-Day fresh fish feast; fishing expedition at an additional cost
Special Wine Tasting at Manager's Cocktail Party
Mondays from 6 to 7 p.m.
Cap Juluca's weekly Manager's Cocktail Party is a longstanding tradition that just got better. In addition to mingling, snacking and cocktailing overlooking Maundays Bay, guests will now be treated to a special wine tasting paired with canapés from Chef Bochenski and a performance by local must-see/must-hear band Omalie 360.

Live entertainment is also part of Lobster Night, and dancing on the beach is highly encouraged. $75 per person to attend Lobster Night at Blue
Free Rum Cocktail Night at Spice
Fridays from 6:30 p.m. through the evening
The mixology folks at the resort have concocted a new exotic Rum Menu to be enjoyed from early evening, along with dinner, and after-dinner.
