Following an impressive showing that landed her one step away from clinching the title of “Top Chef” in the finale of the popular American reality TV show, Saint Lucia’s Nina Compton has been named the island’s first Culinary Ambassador.

The announcement, made by Tourism, Heritage and Creative Industries Minister Lorne Theophilus at the launch of the 23rd edition of the iconic Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival, was greeted by much jubilation and applause.

Theophilus said the Saint Lucia Tourist Board (SLTB) had been keenly following the progress of Nina Compton since the commencement of the show’s third season in October of 2013. “Her journey to the show’s finale captivated thousands of viewers internationally and indeed all of Saint Lucia.”

The SLTB he hinted had been working behind the scenes for weeks exploring ways and means of celebrating and paying tribute to her remarkable achievement.
