about Chef Amy

September 5, 2013

Clean, fresh, approachable food that is made with love and can be enjoyed by everyone, reflects the vision of Somewhere Café & Lounge’s Executive Chef Amy Caffarel Fabara.

The daughter of two missionaries, Chef Amy had a childhood full of family, adventure, and travel. Each new adventure brought new places, new friendships, new flavors, and new culinary experiences. And through these experiences, her passion for food and deep respect for the role it plays in bringing people together grew. Her love for cooking began as a child, cooking side by side with her mother. The warm memories of cooking dishes such as gumbo and baking breads with her mother taught her that even the simplest of meals can often be the most coveted experience when approached with humility and love.

At the age of 14, Amy began cooking at an Italian restaurant, and instantly fell in love with the culinary arts. She attended New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont, followed by an internship at the award winning White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport, Maine. A trained pastry chef, Chef Amy opened Bristol Bakery Cafe in Bristol, Vermont in 2005 with business partner Jenn Parker. After years of success at the bakery, and many long winters, Amy decided it was time to make a change. She sold her half of the bakery to her partner, and found her way to Turks and Caicos.

Amy joined the Somewhere team in 2011 and now lives out her passions for cooking and life in paradise. Together with her husband, Somewhere owner Luis Fabara, and General Manager Ted Bayley, Chef Amy hopes to give all of their guests fresh, delicious food immersed in love, and a dining experience that will nourish their souls.
