SUNDAY'S 10th staging of the Bachelor Chef Cookout event was a huge success. Held at
the Tiki Hut (formerly Kabana) on Hope Road, Half-Way-Tree, the event attracted a large turnout of patrons.

Promoter/chef Shea Stewart was pleased with the turnout.

"This event is a dream that manifested as we went along. I rolled with the punches and moved with the growth and development. We are very happy with the support from the patrons," said Stewart.

Sound system Zinc Fence Disco provided musical delights for patrons who came out early. House music, EDX, and disco were some of the treats that had patrons rocking, but it took DJ Narity to turn things up a notch with the latest hip hop and dancehall selections.

Chromatic sound system, with Creep on the controls, revved into high gear in the latter part of the proceedings, transforming the venue into a kaleidoscope of gyrating bodies.

Stewart explained the highlight of the day's proceedings.

"For me, the highlight is the response of the people coming out and enjoying the food. We tried to make an emphasis on making it better and better each time. Teamwork is integral in the staging of this event. My whole staff at Elite Kreations, the patrons, everybody," said Stewart.

A variety of dishes were available.

CB Foods, Copperwood Pork, CPJ, and Gem Spring Water were some of the sponsors who helped to make the event a success.

"It's overwhelming the kind of support that the sponsors have given to us. The next Bachelor Chef Cookout is going to be in November, and we are due a venue change," Stewart added.
