BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – KNOWN for her creative use of breadfruit, Maureen Stapleton tickled the taste buds of the judges with her signature Breadfruit Chowder and Breadfruit Rolls last evening (Jun. 16) to be named winner of the St. Kitts and Nevis Restaurant Week’s Breadfruit Challenge.

A happy and encouraging crowd gathered at the Nirvana Restaurant in Boyds for the Restaurant Week’s Launch Party, where a host of restaurants and grab-and-go eateries tantalised the attendees with their mouth-watering and succulent dishes, which featured menus of seafood, ground provisions, meats, pastas, and breadfruit.

After the Breadfruit Challenge was announced and the competitors had registered, the elimination process produced three finalists in Avern Sweeney, Edmund Belle and Maureen Stapleton, all of whom were called upon to present their signature dishes to a five-judge panel.
