MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica - Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa, located on the beautiful lush island of Jamaica, is pleased to announce that its executive chef, Michael Dannecker, is this year's recipient of the prestigious "Master Chef of Jamaica" award. The award is presented by Jamaica Observer, the island's leading newspaper.

Chef Dannecker was recognized for his culinary achievements, creativity, and use of local products in the line of contemporary Caribbean cuisine. In accepting this year's award, which was presented in front of 1000 guests who dined on numerous culinary presentations, Chef Dannecker said, "I would say my strength is to take common local ingredients and turn them into new and exciting dishes." Additionally, Chef Dannecker commented that his overall philosophy is best described as "not to think outside the box, but rather throw the box away all together."

Chef Dannecker joined the all-inclusive Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa five years ago to lead an exceptional culinary team. Since his move to Jamaica, he has been nominated for the Chef of the year award twice before this year's win.
