Dinner with A Purpose
The luxe Round Hill Hotel & Villas was the backdrop for a fund-raising gourmet dinner hosted last Wednesday evening by the non-profit organisation, ‘We Care for Cornwall Regional Hospital’.
Steered by Caribbean Producers of Jamaica (CPJ) Executive Chairman Mark Hart, and featuring a specially prepared menu by Round Hill’s multi-award-winning executive chef Martin 0, the dinner event raised US$6,000 (J$552,000) for the charitable cause, which this year, has garnered an estimated US$100,000 (J$9.2 million) through its other fund-raising ventures to better develop the hospital.
The four-course dinner affair — which saw selected CPJ wines being poured with each course — opened with organic baby greens and closed with decadent chocolate hazelnut bars.
We share scenes from the gourmet repast that won overwhelming plaudits from guests.
