Chef-Kayleigh_04

Kayleigh Driver, Coldwell Banker’s private chef, was born in Tortola and after being educated in England, returned to the British Virgin Islands to earn her Associates Degree in Culinary Arts at the Culinary Arts Programme of the HLS Community College.   Having received an excellent foundation in a range of different skills (she excelled at baking!), Kayleigh went on to complete her internship at Scrub Island Resort. Kayleigh then moved on to work at both of the TripAdvisor top rated restaurants in Tortola – Brandywine Bay & The Dove – and now, drawing on the experience she has gained from such renowned establishments, she offers bespoke catering services for a discerning clientele.

Kayleigh stays true to her BVI roots and uses local produce as much as possible. Supporting local farmers & fishermen is an integral part of her cooking philosophy. “No fuss food” which is “simple yet tasty” is how Kayleigh describes her food. Take a look at her menu to see for yourself.

The highlight of her career so far? “Cooking for British royalty during their stay at one of our premier rental properties” beams Kayleigh.

Kayleigh is available for cooking individual meals, whole days and specialty dinners for up to 12 persons. Special event catering is also available. For the ultimate in culinary pampering, why not request Kayleigh to prepare her signature mouthwatering canapés to accompany your sunset cocktails, ready and waiting when you return from a hard day out at the beach?
