A crowd gathers at Winn-Dixie store No. 180 in Yulee, Fla. to watch Chef Amadeus create quick family meals using Winn-Dixie’s signature rotisserie chicken. ​

Chef Amadeus, winner of Food Network’s “Extreme Chef Mexican Showdown” hosted demonstrations in Florida and Georgia Winn-Dixie stores and proved to customers they could create easy and delicious 15-minute meals with Winn-Dixie’s signature rotisserie chicken.

In the Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia store demonstrations on Oct. 28-30, Chef Amadeus showed how to make Chicken Stir Fry, Chicken Salad, Chicken Noodle Soup with Garlic Toast and a savory Strawberry Pound Cake with Vanilla Whipped Cream for dessert. Based in Jacksonville, Fla., Chef Amadeus has traveled around the world to create culinary experiences that foodies and families rave about and Winn-Dixie customers were no exception. Customers from Store No. 180 in Yulee, Fla., Store No. 84 in Fernandina Beach, Fla. and Store No. 19 in St. Simons Island, Ga. raved about the quick and easy recipes along with Chef Amadeus’ tips for worry-free meals.

“Working with Winn-Dixie was fantastic and the management teams were extremely professional,” said Chef Amadeus. “The interaction with the customers was exciting and fun and I look forward to working with Winn-Dixie again in the future.”

“It was wonderful to see our customers enjoy Chef Amadeus’ delicious creations using our rotisserie chicken,” said Winn-Dixie District Director Cheikh Mboup. “We want to help our customers create quick and easy meal solutions for their families.”
