“Jamaica Food & Drink Festival (JFDF)is off to a fine start. Kingston was abuzz, the phones were ringing with inquiries as to where people could cop tickets for the kick-off event, Copperwood's Pork Palooza. The only festival event with a competition element, we crowned our 2017 Top Hog, Dale Delisser, who is no stranger to the title. Dale walked away victorious in 2015, lost it in 2016 but was happy to reclaim the trophy once more. As for the night, it was perfect: cool in temperature and vibe with a variety of wines and spirts, courtesy of Select Brands, and 'everything swine'. Standouts for the night included Alexa Von Strolley, who leads in innovation, while Db-Ann Lange Chen and Theo Smith were crowd favourites.” These sentiments of success expressed by CB Foods Regional Development Manager and Jamaica Food & Drink Festival director Alicia Bogues, describe a relaxed culinary atmosphere, which placed pork and its myriad possibilities front and centre at Palm Drive East, Hope Gardens, Saturday last. Thursday Food joins the pork connoisseurs, epicurean artistes and appreciative foodies who interacted over the savoury shanks, rumps, cuts, ribs, loins, bellies and racks of the other white meat.
