blink / bmobile serve up food for thought

Port of Spain,Trinidad - Ever had "Braised Blackberry served with BBQ Messenger", or "Fillet Vigilance Secured & Savoury with Lemon Butter"? How about "Thai Orient Broadband Chicken Cuisine"? The mouth watering aroma combined with the names was enough to make even the least adventurous guest line up for a taste. The occasion was the annual charity "Professional Culinary Classics" that took place on Saturday 29 October at the Centre of Excellence, Macoya.

This event was introduced in 2009 by the Trinidad and Tobago Group of Professional Associations (TTGPA) for the purpose of raising funds for various charities. The proceeds from this year's edition will go to Mount Carmel Nursery and Day Care Centre, which is in dire need of repairs and upgrading. Ever ready to contribute towards building a better community blink/bmobile's "Sweet hand" team went all out to delight the taste buds of the ravenous but appreciative crowd.

blink/bmobile was one of more than 19 professional associations and companies participating in the event, which was under the patronage of the President of the Republic, George Maxwell Richards and his wife, Dr. Jean Ramjohn-Richards. Each of the very beautifully appointed booths offered up to 250 servings of the dishes they prepared and the chefs were challenged to come up with novel, innovative and of course tasty dishes that were given creative names.

The culinary team from blink/bmobile comprised the Manager of Community and Corporate Affairs, Trudy De Verteuil; Michelle Owen of blink Broadband and Curtis Carrington.

In the end, everyone was a winner with great food and money raised for a very worthy cause.
