'A Taste of Things to Come' menu unfolded Tuesday at the Spanish Court Hotel's Valenica Room as the Best Dressed Chicken reintroduced its salad line to a table of Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards judges and its chair Novia McDonald-Whyte. Expanded from its original flavour to now include lite, jerk, and hot and spicy variants, chef/caterer Jacqui Tyson and her team were enlisted to demonstrate how the shredded chicken breast product could find versatility in a myriad of culinary scenarios. Opening with a cosmopolitan lettuce wrap which enclosed the chicken brand's lite salad and was served atop fried rice vermicelli, the tasting moved from the original salad which was paired with a vol-au-vent, then the jerk salad (the expressed favourite) appeared with a roasted breadfruit crostini, and closed with the hot and spicy wrapped in a sushi roll. Salads all sampled, the Best Dressed Chicken team – all set to roll out the packaged salad line next month to the consumer market – took things further with a collection of breaded wings and tenders, and Reggae Jammin' burger patties which also fell to Tyson to render into quick-fire convenience.

Paired with each expression of the Best Dressed Chicken nibbles was vino from Betco Premier, and comprised the varietal options of Pinot Grigio, Moscato, a red blend, and bubbly. Thursday Life recalls the scene in Tyson's pop-up kitchen and around the table.
