My backyard garden is transformed into a rustic but elegant dining event where my guests enjoy a fusion of Caribbean and International dishes prepared fresh on the spot! Enjoy sweet spicy Jamaican jerk meats & seafood, curries, unique desserts & cocktails, mello music, conversation and laughter! Join me early and I'll show you how to make your own jerk marinade/sauce and other treats before we fire up the coals and start jerking... Round 6 pm is when the feast begin...
