I love to host and entertain. I have had home-made Thai, Filipino, Chinese, Italian, Persian, Ethiopian and Indian. I have traveled to Mexico, Europe, Caribbean and Africa. Each time I sought out “good food.” I dined at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London. 7 courses later I was satisfied and full, wondering with one ravioli in one of the courses, how? I dined at La Colombe in South Africa in 2015 – divine! I lived in Jamaica for 17 years enjoying fresh, tasty cuisine and dancing competitive reggae, calypso, hip hop and Kumina music. My palate is complicated. I had to learn to cook food that satisfies it and I am ready to share. I've been making delicious Jamaican dishes for over 15 years.

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
