DE­SPITE TREATS of Hur­ri­cane Matthew, food­ies weath­ered the pend­ing storm for a wor­thy cause to sup­port The Heart Foun­da­tion’s an­nual fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive, Sim­ply Red.

Those in at­ten­dance made a grand en­trance and toured the colour­ful lawns of Ja­maica House in high hopes of in­dulging in the savoury and sweet of­fer­ings right at their fin­ger­tips.

De­lec­ta­ble dishes kept guests busy, who had so many to choose from with so lit­tle time. Jac­qui Tyson, armed with her fa­mous ‘danc­ing chef’ blazed palates with de­light­ful pas­tas and her sig­na­ture-pig’s tail, cool­ing things down with her sig­na­ture-fruit crepe.

Lor­raine Fung de­liv­ered top notch culi­nary mas­ter­pieces, rang­ing from jerked pork lo mein with a plan­tain chips and spicy peanut top­ping to chicken taco with a pineap­ple black bean salsa, just to name a few.

Tas­tee Cheese shared their

Food gi­ants Rain­for­est Seafoods had seafood de­lights for all to savour, and Crabs Dat Come sup­plied all the crab crav­ings for the night. The Em­bassy of Chile had many want­ing more, while GCG Events and Great House Ca­ter­ings brought in­no­va­tion at its tasti­est. Sali­vat­ing yet? Paired with a won­der­ful cock­tail se­lec­tions from JMMB, CPJ and Welch, it just could not get any bet­ter. Other tasty treats in­cluded Ker­ry­gold’s cho­co­late dreams and Bac­ardi fresh fruit tarts.

For culi­nary en­ter­tain­ment, the young chefs were seen out and about cook­ing up a storm in a match up to win sev­eral prizes. All in all, Sim­ply Red was sim­ply de­li­cious.
