JHTA celebrates fine Jamaican cuisine

Claudia Gardner, Hospitality Jamaica Writer

The lush lawns of the Rose Hall Great House in Montego Bay provided the perfect setting for the Montego Bay Chapter of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association's (JHTA) fundraiser dubbed A Celebration of Fine Jamaican Cuisines', on Saturday night.

Chapter chairman Robert Headley told Hospitality Jamaica that he was as impressed with the turnout as he was with the culinary delights offered by some of St James, Hanover and Trelawny's most exquisite hotels.

"This event has seen one of the best turnouts we have had. We are very happy with what we have seen. It's all in aid of charity programmes that we are involved in, and this is one of our main fundraisers. We usually cater to somewhere between 250 to 300 people. Tonight I am seeing that we have somewhere between 300 to 350 people, so it has been very good in terms of public support," he said.

Headley credited his planning and coordinating team, whom he said once again put on another stellar event, and the corporate sponsors in the hospitality sector whose efforts ensured the event took place.


"The quality of food and beverages is very impressive. And I want to say thank you to the machinery behind it - the JHTA members that came behind and put this together," he added.

"I am happy with the support of all the sponsors and the hotels that came and put this together. The sponsorship support has been very good," he said.

Among the sponsors of the event were Royalton White Sands, Appleton Estate, Caribbean Producers Jamaica, Hilton Hotels and Resorts; Round Hill Hotel and Villas; Sandals Resorts, Heart Trust NTA, Riu Resorts, Half Moon Resorts, Holiday Inn Resorts, Holiday Inn Resorts, The Tryall Club, Crazy Jim Ice Cream, Melia Braco Village and the Rose Hall Great House.
