The prod­ucts can be found at all ma­jor su­per­mar­kets and ho­tels as well as a re­tail venue out­side the Rod­ney Bay Aquatic Cen­tre on r Chefactor Caribbean is off to a siz­zling start. Set in the well-ap­pointed farm of Plant Grow Eat in Babon­neau, con­tes­tants had the chal­lenge of pre­par­ing an award-win­ning dish with no heat, only fruits and vegetables from the farm and in­cor­po­rat­ing the Tues­days and Fri­days, from 2:30 to 5:30pm. De­vel­oped and man­aged by Lloyd Fanus and Peter and Pat­tie Dil­lon, the farm runs on a profit-share and worker-own­er­ship model.

Ac­cord­ing to Peter Dil­lon of Plant Grow Eat, ‘be­ing able to work with the young chefs on this project is in line with our mis­sion of pro­mot­ing the skill­build­ing in young peo­ple. We hope they take this ex­pe­ri­ence as a learn­ing tool and keep us­ing lo­cal prod­ucts to cre­ate amaz­ing dishes.’
