Sunday last, Thursday Life was on site at the 12 Chefs of Christmas thank-you dinner hosted at the well-appointed home of President and CEO of Jamaica Broilers Group Christopher Levy and his wife Sally. The exquisite affair included friends and family of The 12 Best Dressed Chefs, specially invited guests and members of the Best Dressed family. Guests chilled, Sunday-style, with live entertainment from the Warm N’ Easy band, a sumptuos spread, spectacular decor and easy camaraderie.


The evening winded down with profound testimonies made by all 12 Chefs who shared the same sentiments — that the 12 chefs of Christmas campaign was about so much more than food; it was about creating unique memories with families across Jamaica. The testimonies left guests in a reflective mood. Indeed, for Michele Williams the campaign was about preparing a last meal for a 19-year-old female barely clutching to life. "Her wish," shared an emotional Williams, was to celebrate Christmas (for the final time with her family). She passed 24 hours after the catered Christmas lunch"... Chef Simone Walker-Barrett spoke of her family who graciously invited a group of children to their Christmas dinner but had no dining table, a situation temporarily rectified by Walker-Barrett.The Jamaica Broilers Group is putting plans in place for a permanent dining table. "We take a lot for granted," expressed Steve Sowa, who catered to a family from Trelawny. Chef Ravi Anne, who was the last to share his experiences, implored the others to do as much as they can to help others while they can. He closed, "Be good and walk good." A statement which certainly resonated with guests summed up the atmosphere of the evening and underscored that The Jamaica Broilers Group is indeed a company built on relationships.
