Pasta, anyone? Well, if you are a real pasta lover, then there's a mouth-watering treat for you! The ultimate premium pasta festival is here once again to take your taste buds into flavourful overdrive!

Pasta Supreme, now sponsored by Eve and powered by Serge, had its official media launch at the home of Toyota Jamaica on Old Hope Road last Friday. Media personnel, sponsors, as well as participating caterers gathered in the cosy showroom to partake in the festivities of all things pasta.

According to director of Pasta Supreme, Dominic McDowell: "The 2017 staging of Pasta Supreme will feature a much more diversified menu offering in terms of flavour profiles and meat pairings, as well as a wider selection of complimentary offerings ranging from a variety of focaccia breads that will be available in the Pizza Please Bread Basket, or the appetising soup selections at Simma's Soup Bar and the Toss & Roll Salad Bar. DAM Good Brownies will be available at the event in a variety of different forms as well: bites, kebabs, parfaits, truffles and sweet shots."

Changes made in order to create a bigger and better event this year include moving it from indoors to outdoors. The family event has also added a 'Kiddies Village' for children to enjoy while the adults eat. There will be an improved entertainment package, which will feature a live musical presentation organised by Push A Yute records. And, for an overall premium experience, there will also be a VIP lounge with access to a VIP wine and cocktail-inclusive bar, and a Paint & Sip Lounge.
