Betty creates sweet moments
Sweet and savoury bread pudding is a favourite of many Jamaicans no matter what age group. Many families have the simple recipe that they have passed down for generations.
Recently, specially invited guests from the culinary and media world, including Miss Jamaica World 2014 Laurie-Ann Chin, were in attendance at The BETTY Experience, hosted by NestlÈ Jamaica Limited at its head office in New Kingston recently.
The event showcased the versatility of BETTY in the preparation of various baked treats, including bread pudding, using Betty Sweetened Condensed Milk and Betty Pineapple Ice Cream. The guests who competed in teams also prepared Betty Festive Cookies. Chef and owner of KukUp Kreations Terri-Ann Brown-Palmer was on hand to assist the participants with the recipes and also demonstrated the Betty Pineapple Ice Cream recipe.
The level of engagement and interaction both on site and online was high as guests participated in the BETTY social-media team competition, where they posted team pictures on their social media pages and guests were asked to garner the most likes for their team to win prizes. Everyone walked away with gift bags, courtesy of Betty, and a day filled with fun and laughter.
Terri-Karelle Reid, online brand manager at The Gleaner, was on the winning team along with Stephanie Lumley, Sean Bennett, Naomi Garrick, Amita Persaud, and Monique 'Irie Diva' Solomon.
According to Casey Perue, senior consumer marketing manager - dairy at NestlÈ Jamaica Limited, the objectives of The BETTY Experience were for persons to look at Betty Sweetened Condensed Milk in a different way.
"BETTY is not just for creaming and the preparation of porridge and tea. It can also be used for desserts and baking. The guests were definitely enlightened and had the opportunity to use simple easy recipes," Perue said.
