Conseiller Culinaire Pierre Battaglia and his team. Saturday night's induction gala at Moon Palace Jamaica was directed by General Manager/Jamaica Maître Hôtelier Clifton Reader and Executive Chef José Vallejo. Bailli Délégué Small served as induct- ing officer at the ceremony. He was assisted by Great Britain Bailli Délégué Philip Evins and regional officers. In addition to the induc- tions and elevations, six Stars of Excellence and sixteen commandeur pins were awarded. Jamaica Officier Chef Rôtisseur Robert Hoehener received his officier commandeur pin. Titled "Out of Many…One Cuisine," the eight-course show- stopping dinner spotlighted the versatility of the food cultures and professionalism of the culinary teams on the island. Bailli Délégué Small presented General Manager/Maître Hôtelier Reader with an award of merit. A final, well-deserved honor was bestowed upon Chambellan Provincial/Jamaica Bailli Derek Elder, who received a standing ovation after Bailli Délégué Small presented him with a Gold Star of Excellence. The following morning, members gathered for the final event of the chapitre. At Konoko Falls, a beautiful park nestled in lush rainfor- ests, they interacted with various local birds and wildlife before being guided to the top of the spectacular falls. The subsequent brunch they enjoyed was put on by the chefs of the Culinary Federation of Jamaica. After four days of fantastic events, new friendships had been forged. The Jamaica Bailliage is extremely proud to have hosted this joint chapitre and extends its appreciation to individual event hosts for their exceptional work. Kudos also to Jamaica officers who contributed to making it an unforgettable experience for all.
