PETER A. EDEY
Chef Edey’s culinary career is one that spans close to four decades, has taken him around the world and more importantly, is still going strong.
At the tender age of 18, the love of cooking and the desire to be a Chef, led a young Peter Edey to the Barbados Hotel School, where he trained in Food Preparation and Presentation. A year later, he graduated at the top of his class. Opportunities to work in hotels such as The Mirimar (now The Royal Pavilion), the Barbados Hilton, Best Western, Sandy Beach and Cobblers Cove, afforded Chef Edey valuable practical knowledge and experience in the art of cooking, and his culinary career was further enhanced through several stints in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
His desire to be among the best in the culinary arena, led him to the prestigious International School of Culinary Arts, Ecole de Gastronimie Francaise Ritz-Escoffier in Paris, France, from which he graduated in 1995 with a Degree in Culinary Arts. At that time, he held the distinction of being one of the most qualified Barbadian Chefs in Barbados.
Lifetime Achievement Award
Chef Edey was the toast of the town over the weekend at the Roberts NIFCA Culinary Arts Arena and Marketplace when he received a NIFCA lifetime Achievement award for his contribution to Barbados’ culinary sector.
In November 2016, during the 50th Anniversary of Barbados’ Independence and the presentation of National Honours and Awards, Peter Edey was awarded the Barbados Service Medal for his outstanding service to the youth of Barbados.
