One grand din­ner

Jamaica Gleaner - - FOOD -

THE QUES­TION of what to do for Christ­mas din­ner will get a de­li­cious an­swer for 12 lucky win­ners in The Best Dressed Chicken 12 Chefs of Christ­mas pro­mo­tion.

Now in its third year, the pro­mo­tion of­fers cus­tomers who buy The Best Dressed Chicken a chance to win Christ­mas din­ner pre­pared ex­clu­sively by 12 of Ja­maica’s best chefs.

Of the 12 win­ners, one per­son also gets the bonus prize of $600,000 in gro­ceries for a year. In a de­par­ture from the first two edi­tions of the pro­mo­tion, where each of the chefs de­liv­ered gourmet Christ­mas din­ners to the homes of the win­ners, this year all 12 win­ners and their guests will be fêted at a grand din­ner — with all the trimmings of the hol­i­days. Each win­ner will be as­signed their own per­sonal chef so, to­gether, the win­ner and the chef can plan a feast that best cel­e­brates their unique fam­ily.


“The Best Dressed Chicken is al­ways en­thu­si­as­tic about the im­por­tance of fam­ily, and so we thought it would be fan­tas­tic for us to add even deeper mean­ing to the hol­i­days by bring­ing all the win­ning fam­i­lies to­gether in one space,” said For­rest Henry, vi­cepres­i­dent, sales and mar­ket­ing at The Best Dressed Chicken.

The grand din­ner takes place on De­cem­ber 26 at a lo­ca­tion to be re­vealed. “We’re call­ing this our won­der­land and while we’re not go­ing to re­veal the lo­ca­tion just yet, our win­ners can count on it be­ing truly re­mark­able,” said For­rest-Henry.

She con­tin­ued, “Es­sen­tially, we’re say­ing, ‘You’ve had us at your ta­ble, now here’s a chance to en­joy be­ing at ours.” Chef Michele Wil­liams shows off her oregano-lemon but­ter roasted chicken with jerk sausage and herbed bread stuff­ing.
