Food inspired by...


Actually, she was my great grandmother, and back in St. Mary, Jamaica, we called her Sister Wadi. I remember that she was tall and proud and taught me how to cook. The food I serve at my restaurant may have a modern twist – with items like the Bob Marley Pizza Bowl – but every bite is flavoured with memories of Sister Wadi.
