Cap Maison celebrates its popular Guest Chef Series for the sixth year in 2016 with Chef Shorne Benjamin guest cooking in the kitchen of Cliff at Cap the weekend of January 15-17, 2016. Cap Maison is offering a Chef Series Weekend Package that includes accommodations and dinners to mark the event.
Chef Shorne Benjamin grew up in Saint Lucia and began cooking with his grandmother when he was just seven years old. His friends and family became his biggest fans and critics at Sunday dinners, where he learned to experiment with new dishes, spices and flavors. It was the beginning of his cooking style,
which he now calls New Age Caribbean, melding Caribbean inspired dishes with international cuisine and his personal conceptual cooking flair. A graduate of the French Culinary Institute in New York City, Chef Benjamin has cooked with such masters as Jean-Georges Vongerichten at ABC Kitchen and Chef James Jermyn of Maloney & Porcelli in New York. For four years running, he has cooked at NYC’s Annual Caribbean 2015 Rum and Rhythm Benefit and Auction during New York City Caribbean Week. He is the co-founder and Executive Chef of ShorCulinaire, which offers private chef and catering services, and is presently Chef de Partie at The Shop at Andaz 5th Avenue in New York City.
