(PR) – Inspired by Food Network’s competition show, Chopped, Brunswick® is on the hunt for its first Brunswick® Champion through its Chef at Home Contest.
Having been a provider of healthy and delicious canned seafood for generations of West Indians, Brunswick® has developed a deep love for the Caribbean and its people. The Chef at Home Contest was created to not only give back to the consumers who have trusted the brand for over 70 years, but to also highlight the Caribbean’s raw talent and creativity, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Every Wednesday, consumers are challenged to create a delicious meal which must include four specific ingredients, one of which is a Brunswick® product. They are then asked to upload a photo of the finished meal to Instagram with the hashtag #brunswickchefchallenge. The reposted entry with the most likes on Brunswick’s official Instagram account (@caribbeanlovesbrunswick) becomes the Weekly Champion. Weekly Champions can choose between a prize of a case of Brunswick® Tuna or Sardines (equivalent to 48 cans).
Round 1 and 2 were both won by participants from Saint Lucia.
“Brunswick® is excited to be able to offer the Chef at Home contest to the 17 countries serviced by our Caribbean Loves Brunswick® Facebook and Instagram pages.” Marketing Manager at Clover Leaf Seafoods Corp, Linda Walsh said in a statement. “People are spending more time at home, and more time preparing meals. It’s a great way for them to showcase their creativity and have a chance to win some great prizes too!”
Four Weekly Champions will face each other, virtually, in the Finale Round of the contest. The Brunswick® Chef at Home Winner will be awarded a case of Brunswick® Tuna or Sardines, and a Gift Card valued at USD$100.
The Brunswick Chef at Home Contest is open to Caribbean Nationals, 18 and over, who reside in the following territories: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Aruba, Bermuda, The Bahamas, Curacao, Dominica, Grand Cayman, Grenada, Guyana, Montserrat, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Thomas, Saint Vincent & The Grenadines, Sint Maarten and Tortola.
To inspire potential participants, Brunswick® will be sharing delicious and easy recipes through its social media. Interested participants are encouraged to visit its official pages on Instagram & Facebook (@caribbeanlovesbrunswick), for complete contest rules.
