Anguilla, West Indies

Four Seasons Resort Anguilla has partnered with San Domenico Palace, Taormina, A Four Seasons Hotel, named “Best Hotel” by the leading global travel agency network Virtuoso and recently known as one of the dreamy locations for season 2 of the HBO show The White Lotus, to announce a delectable culinary partnership. Scheduled for November 21-25, 2023, Chef Samuele Messina will bring the acclaimed Michelin-starred restaurant Principe Cerami to the island for refined yet relaxed dining experiences that will showcase the island’s natural bounty.

Combining his talents with Four Seasons Resort Anguilla Executive Chef Manu Calderon, the worldly collaboration promises to deliver an unforgettable gastronomic experience that combines tradition with innovation. The celebratory events include a residency takeover at Bamboo Bar & Grill, and a private dining offer.

Chef Samuele's culinary journey began at his family's farmhouse resort in Mussomeli, where he learned the art of cooking from his mother. He honed his skills in Switzerland, working at renowned restaurants such as Rialto Gourmet Bistrot in Gstaad and Il Lago at Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva. His dedication to delivering unique dishes led him to Principe Cerami at San Domenico Palace, where he quickly rose to become Junior Sous Chef, working closely with Executive Chef Massimo Mantarro and contributing to the restaurant's Michelin star.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to step into what is an already rich culinary program at Four Seasons Resort Anguilla,” says Samuele Messina. “I look forward to bringing a taste of Principe Cerami to both their Resort and island guests this Thanksgiving.”

Principe Cerami will take over the Resort’s Bamboo Bar & Grill overlooking Meads Bay, ranked one of the world’s top 50 beaches. Known for its intimate beachfront location, this collective menu will take influence from the island’s local culture and showcase dishes such as crayfish with clams emulsion, burrata cheese topped with basil and passionfruit; ravioli pasta filled with grouper and zucchini; and house-made taglioni pasta accompanied by white veal ragout. Guests can then end the evening on sweet note with indulgent desserts, including Sicilian cannolis and tiramisu.

This special culinary residency and partnership between Four Seasons Resort Anguilla and San Domenico Palace, A Four Seasons Hotel is a testament to the commitment of both establishments to providing unparalleled and unique dining experiences to their guests.

In addition to the residency, guests are invited to return for dinner to take in sunset views from the restaurant’s blufftop location while indulging in Chef Manu’s bountiful Thanksgiving dinner menus. Additionally, Resort guests can take advantage of a special private dining offer fit for up to ten guests. Leave the cooking to the talented culinary team and impress friends and family with a next level Thanksgiving feast from the comfort of one’s own villa.

The Principe Cerami takeover at Four Seasons Resort Anguilla will be available at 5:30 to 9:30 pm on November 23, 2023 for dinner at Bamboo Bar & Grill. The residency takeover at Bamboo Bar & Grill will be available November 21 through November 25, 2023 from 5:00 to 7:30 pm and the private dining offer will be available on November 23, 2023 and begins at USD 175 per person.
