Sliced to perfection, a ‘graceful’ ham tantalises palates.

Grace Foods, the brand that so many know and love, is renowned for being a Jamaican household name. Recently, the company announced that they would be making a big reveal last Sunday, whetting the appetites of foodies in anticipation.

Socialites swayed in hues of fine fashion into the transformed oasis of Hope Gardens for the scrumptious occasion.

Tantalising

As tantalising spices danced gleefully in the open air, it was common courtesy for specially invited guests to respond to these delecable scents by visiting the food stations. They received far more than they had bargained for, taking great pleasure in returning to the buffet lines for more.

Caterers Alhambra Inn and Restaurant went all out in offering a wide assortment of delectable dishes.

From soup stop and tasty vegetarian options to jerked pork, jerked chicken, curried goat, tuna casserole and a ham selection, along with sides of festival, roti and traditional rice and peas, there was a plethora of flavour to savour. Persons were later found making sweet indulgence into the available bite-sized sweet potato pudding and cheesecake on display.

When those in attendance were parched, they stocked up a variety of mixed spirits available at the heart of the venue.

With lively activities accompanied by prizes happening on the main stage, the anxious audience awaited the formal statement from the management of Grace Foods. Last year, the surprise came in form of new and exciting flavas and beats.

This year, the hard-working corporation was happy to declare that they took a detour from dishes to tap into the lap of luxury by offering a house to a lucky Grace shopper. Are you feeling lucky? Let’s see. In case you weren’t able to come out for the big reveal, here are the highlights.
