Celebrity Chef Paul Wedgwood welcomes Queen’s Baton Torch Relay in Barbados as it heads to Scotland for Commonwealth Games
Celebrity Chef Paul Wedgwood, Head Chef of the Celtic festival in Barbados and newly appointed Culinary Director of Relish Restaurants, has been requested by the British High Commissioner to represent the United Kingdom at the Queen’s Baton Relay Reception in Barbados.
The Queen’s Baton Relay is a much loved tradition of the Commonwealth Games and symbolises the coming together of all Commonwealth nations and territories in preparation for the four-yearly festival of sport and culture, which is being hosted by The City of Glasgow this year.
In the spirit of this, guests and dignitaries will experience a little taste of Scotland by sampling Wedgwood’s infamous Bajan haggis and enjoying a demonstration of his unique culinary expertise.
Wedgwood said “It was a great honour to be asked by the High Commissioner to attend” He continued; “Barbados, its culture, produce and the people have been a huge inspiration to me and I look forward to representing the United Kingdom on the 7th March“
The Barbados Olympic Association is collaborating with the British High Commission, Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS), and Commonwealth Games sponsors UNICEF to stage a number of activities and events to commemorate the Baton’s stay on the island.
The Baton will arrive in Barbados on March 5th, and after a series of cultural events around the Island will culminate at the High Commission Reception on March 7th before leaving for Grenada on March 8th.
