The ScotiaFoundation and Jimmy Cliff Foundation satisfied palates at Monday's fundraising dinner, Many Rivers to Cross for our Children, at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel.

The menu featured a series of classics which were superb with each bite. The delightful evening began with cream of asparagus soup, grilled asparagus purÈe served with asparagus and mozarella quesadillas, followed by a magnificent beetroot and cranberry salsa with grilled zucchini, fresh coconut oil emulsion served with Scotch bonnet-smoked marlin ceviche and local cherry tomato jam.

The entrÈe was melt-in-your-mouth Scotch bonnet-perfumed poached chicken breast stuffed with Pepper Jack cheese and ripe plantain with a sorrel glaze nested on broccoli, and roasted bell peppers with wild monterey salmon with a saffron and coconut emulsion along with crusted sweet potato mash.

Vegetarians were not left out, and were also availed of the exquisite taste of a serving of herb-crusted tofu with soya reduction, Scotch bonnet-crusted salmon with june plum beurre blanc served with crusted sweet potato mash.

Dessert was simply divine. Triple cheesecake delight and poached otaheite apples infused with passion-vodka Irish cream pudding served with glazed papaya spheres followed by platters of petits fours served with coffee or tea.

It was a prefect meal for a perfect night, which was all for a very worthy cause: the children of Jamaica.
