Keith Prowse, the UK’s hospitality leader, will give corporate hospitality a Caribbean twist for England’s two NatWest International T20’s against the West Indies at the Kia Oval (Friday 23rd September and Sunday 25th September).
Levi Roots, celebrity chef and maker of the legendary Reggae-Reggae sauce, has contributed to Keith Prowse’s Caribbean menu for corporate hospitality facilities on the Roof Terrace, 2nd Floor Lounge and OCS Boxes in the OCS Stand, as well as across the ground in the Pavilion Stand.
The packages capitalise on the increasing popularity of Twenty20 as a convenient post-work or weekend corporate entertaining option, with many companies unable to commit a day away from the office.
Jamaican Jerk Chicken with rice and peas and West Indian Curry Style Cheeseburger feature in the carefully planned two-course buffet, with Caribbean fruit salad and dark rum syrup amongst the desserts.
Guests entertaining on the Roof Terrace will be serenaded by a live steel drum band, complete with dancers, while Levi Roots himself will be on hand to mingle with guests on the Sunday. A rum cocktail reception will welcome guests arriving on both days and Levi Roots will provide a specially assembled goodie bag including exclusive Caribbean cooking samples as a parting gift.
Levi Roots sprung to notoriety after appearing on the reality TV show Dragon’s Den, where budding entrepreneurs hope to attract investment from Britain’s business elite. Since receiving the backing of ‘Dragon’ Peter Jones, his Reggae Reggae Sauce has gone on to become a popular condiment on dinner tables nationwide.
Keith Prowse’s partnership with Levi Roots follows its work with Michelin-starred chef Albert Roux at the award winning Gatsby Club during The Championships, Wimbledon.
Ted Walker, Keith Prowse Head of Marketing said: “We are delighted to seal this partnership with one of the UK culinary scene’s most vibrant individuals. Levi Roots is a great ambassador for Caribbean culture and we have enjoyed working closely with him on the dining experience for our international Twenty20 packages at the Kia Oval.”
Packages are priced at end of season value rates, from £199 + VAT for Friday (23rd September) and £125 + VAT for Sunday (25th September).
