Get to know Shivi Ramoutar

Shivi grew up in Trinidad where she was surrounded by plates brimming with passion and flavour from an early age. Having sealed her reputation as the queen of contemporary Caribbean cooking Shivi can be regularly found on TV and is currently the resident chef on Kate Garraway’s ITV Saturday show, Garraway’s Good Stuff.

Shivi will be cooking up her mouthwatering recipes for Arvia’s maiden season in the Caribbean in 2023. And you can celebrate the zesty flavours of this sun-drenched region by tasting her exclusive range of dishes in Taste 360 and The Beach House.

“I’m so excited to share my food with Arvia’s guests. It’s my interpretation of the Caribbean dishes that have influenced my life, with some British elements thrown in too. I hope to make the experience as much about ‘limin’ (the Caribbean art of relaxing with friends) as it is about the food."– Shivi Ramoutar

Why Shivi is delighted to share her vibrant recipes with Arvia’s guests…

"For me, Caribbean food is proper fusion food, influenced by all the people that have travelled through the region. If I venture into other culinary territories my food will still be bold, vibrant and colourful. These three elements of Caribbean cooking have become inherent.” - Shivi Ramoutar

The fabulous new queen of contemporary Caribbean cooking will be bringing her vibrant, flavourful recipes to Arvia for her maiden season in the Caribbean in winter 2023-4 and will celebrate her passion for the region’s cuisine with an exclusive collection of dishes at Taste 360 and The Beach House.
