Jamaica: Ones To Watch For 2017

The Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett is determined to drive tourism numbers through gastronomy. Those responsible for what visitors to our shores eat and, indeed, how they perceive our cuisine must now re-evaluate the offerings of each plate.

Thursday Life starts the big reveal at Sandals Resorts where the luxurious setting is rivalled only by its Five-Star Global Gourmet cuisine.

The first female chef de cuisine

Rochelle Grindley doesn’t cook, she creates…

In 2014, a 25-year-old Grindley was named Taste of Jamaica’s Chef of the Year.

As chef de cuisine at Sandals Inn, Grindley consistently wows guests with her inspired creations which showcase culinary artistry and Sandals Resorts’ Five-Star Global Gourmet cuisine at its best.

Holding herself to an extremely high standard, she is adamant that everything she undertakes must bear a stamp of perfection.

A recipient of several accolades, including a Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards scholarship, Grindley views all of her experiences both inside and outside the kitchen as life lessons and uses them to motivate and inspire her team.
