Now in its third year, the promotion offers customers who buy The Best Dressed Chicken a chance to win Christmas dinner prepared exclusively by 12 of Jamaica’s best chefs.
If it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, that’s because The Best Dressed Chicken has once again launched its 12 Chefs of Christmas campaign. The launch, which took place Friday last at Emancipation Park, New Kingston, has made a departure from the first two editions, wherein each of the 12 chefs would deliver gourmet Christmas dinners to the homes of the winners. This year, all 12 winners and their guests will instead be feted at a grand dinner, complete with a personal chef.
