Away We Go... A Jamaican Journey
Jamaica is an island rich in culture and cuisine. The land grows many unique fruits and vegetables which were brought over as different groups settled on the island. Across many of our dishes you will find West African, Spanish, Indian, Chinese, and European influences. The food truly reflects the island's motto - "Out of Many, One People". Dine with me as we journey through those cross-cultural intersections and traditional Jamaican dishes.
For guests with flexible schedules...after dinner we can head over to Lovers Rock - a local bar with great drinks and classic reggae, dancehall, and soca vibes.
Jamaican Pumpkin Soup
In a place where it's hot all the time, soup is an island delight and served year round. Punpkin soup is hearty way to start the evening to prepare your palette for the main course.

I grew up experiencing the best of both worlds at the dinner table. Raised by two Jamaican parents who are both amazing cooks - my father held down the kitchen with authentic Jamaican cuisine, while my mother ensured we were familiar with traditional American dishes. She also was an amazing baker. Often time we'd have two prepared meals for dinner because my mom would grow tired of eating Jamaican food everyday. Our house always had, "too many cooks in the kitchen". But food always brought us all together.
I joined Eat With because I am huge foodie and an aspiring food entrepreneur. Through this platform, I hope that I can share my family's gift with the world and meet amazing people along the way.
