Given the recent increase in General Consumption Tax (GCT) in Jamaica, grocery shopping is a penny-pinching affair. Indeed this is something many persons are grappling with given the state of the world economy. The words “Global financial crisis” have not only emblazoned themselves permanently in our memories, but is a constant companion in the shopping basket. I was fortunate to run into one of Jamaica’s famous home-grown Chefs – Brian Lumley – on a Saturday sojourn to the supermarket. Not only was I treated to fancy fare – (white & red wine (Zinfandel & Muscat), jerk chicken with mango chutney) – but I was able to spend a few minutes talking to this amazing young man.
Enjoy this peek at him mixing the charm in with his special marinade recipe. Read more about Brian and his achievements here – The Chef on the rise Nominees
