Pastry Chef / Owner
Gorvey Henry Cakes, British Virgin Islands
As a culinary artisan in a world where cooking was usually seen as only a means to provide for one’s family, Gorvey Henry has forged a name for himself which is synonymous with creative excellence. Among his native Virgin Islanders, he is known for his sculpted cakes which are often commissioned by those who are seeking to make a statement.
Gorvey prides himself on being able to offer clients an experience rather than just a cake. With the skill and precision of an architect Gorvey realizes celebration cakes for any and all occasions using a unique blend of flavors which are pleasing to even the most discerning palate.
When he is not working in his cake studio at Gorvey Henry Cakes, he is engaged in sculpting the minds of aspiring culinarians at the H Lavity Stoutt Community College where he works as a Chef Instructor in all disciplines.
Although Gorvey has training in both Culinary Arts and Baking and Pastries his passion lies in pastries. After completing his formal training at the Culinary Institute of America, Gorvey was excited to return to the British Virgin Islands and open Gorvey Henry Cakes (BVI) which has been his base for the past four years.
