I will meet you at Starbucks at Doctor's Cave Beach at 9 a.m. sharp. We will do brief introductions and I will share with you the recipes that we will be working on that day. We will go straight to a local market to shop for ingredients. You will get a chance to meet local traders selling in the market. Once we have all of our ingredients, we will head to Point of View Villa & Spa to begin our cooking class, where you will cook with a view of the ocean! Depending on what is growing in the garden at Point of View, we may pick from the raised beds or from the many fruit trees onsite. We will make four dishes--a protein (vegetarian or non-vegetarian), rice and peas, a steamed veggie such as callaloo, cabbage or bok choy and fried plantains or roasted breadfruit. You will receive the recipes to take home with you. We will then eat together on the verandah overlooking a stunning view of Montego Bay. You will enjoy a fresh coconut from a local farm with lunch! The driver will then take you back to Starbucks where we started. You will arrive at Starbucks at 3 p.m.
I am the caretaker and chef at Point of View Villa & Spa where I have cooked for hundreds of people. I love to cook, and I love to teach others how to do the same! Jamaican food is known all over the world for its flavors -- the smoky flavor of jerk chicken, the vinegar base of escoveitch fish, the coconut in rice and peas, and the curry used to make vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. I have been making these dishes since I was a teenager, and while many people try to do twists on Jamaican food, I prefer to keep close to traditional cooking techniques and flavors. There is nothing like home cooking!

We will visit a bustling local market where people sell local fruit and vegetables. This market is local, not a tourist spot, so you will get an authentic market experience. As the caretaker, chef and partner with Point of View Villa & Spa, we will have exclusive access to this ocean view property for our cooking class and dining experience.
