Boka Group backs ini­tia­tive to find hid­den tal­ent as­pir­ing chefs in Jr. Chefactor Caribbean

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

For the first time in Saint Lu­cia nine ju­nior home cooks will put on their Jr Chefactor aprons and sharpen their knives in a bid to cook up a golden fu­ture for them­selves as the next gen­er­a­tion of celebrity chefs. In the bat­tle for the fi­nal of Jr. Chefactor Caribbean, one am­bi­tious young Saint Lu­cian will be set­ting out on a jour­ney of a lifetime with a war-chest worth thou­sands of dol­lars in both prizes and en­dorse­ments.

BOKA Group, own­ers of Belvedere Plan­ta­tion and the Ma­haut Es­tate near Ca­naries, are ti­tle spon­sors of this brand new Saint Lu­cian re­al­ity show. To­gether with Hanna Fitz from Seashell Con­sult­ing, they have con­trib­uted sig­nif­i­cantly to the cre­ation of the re­al­ity show that has the whole Is­land talk­ing.

Un­der the stew­ard­ship of Boka Group Owner and CEO, John Kennedy, the chance has been cre­ated to help shape lives and bud­ding culi­nary tal­ents right here in Saint Lu­cia.

John Kennedy told the me­dia, “With­out support this is a tough business to get into. The is­land has tal­ent; it’s there, we have just added the cru­cial in­gre­di­ent – op­por­tu­nity. Th­ese con­tes­tants are am­bi­tious and hun­gry to suc­ceed, but they must fight their own bat­tle to win. All of them will learn and one of them will win. That per­son will then be set on the road to suc­cess in the in­dus­try that they love.”

Geared to air its first episode in Novem­ber on Choice TV, Jr. Chefactor Caribbean prom­ises lots of ex­cite­ment, laugh­ter and tears as nine young con­tes­tants vie for the cov­eted ti­tle of the first ever Jr. Chefactor Caribbean. Watch the tal­ent and be amazed.
