Captain Jack, Meet Captain Morgan
From last night's "Feed the Farmer Chef Challenge", coorporate team building event, at Ridge to Reef Farm with the administrative staff of Diageo, the makers of Captain Morgan rum and many other brands. Their team rolled up their sleeves, harvested, prepped, and created a fabulous dinner along with our chefs, Jamison Pollitt and Tahirah Abubakr. Two teams competed, and it went down to the wire with the judges.
This was my favorite dish, super ripe jackfruit with hibiscus and banana, accompanied with Captain Morgans spiced rum reduction sauce. They also came up with a clever name for the dish, Captain Jack! It won first place, could be a Taste of stx entry one day, hmmmm?
Big thanks to the judges Shelli Brin-Olive and Dakota Breveridge. Also, Jillian Biggerstaff was an amazing referee and set up most of the event with a TV production quality. In all, it was a great mingle for two of St. Croix's highest quality food and beverage companies... If anyone else wants to do a Team Building event, contact us.
