Flying in from Jamaica to show off their culinary skills were Anna-Kay Tomlinson of Miss T's Ocho Rios; Gariel Ferguson, G's BBQ, Kingston; and Colin Hylton, Guilt Trip, Kingston. A number of friends, supporters, well-wishers and foodies made the trek to South Florida to join in the excitement on the beach. Richard Hammond of Hammond's Bakery, Miami Gardens, offered Angus Beef Jamaican patties that disappeared as quickly as they were put out.
There was no doubt that a good time was had by all in attendance. The crowd certainly responded favourably when Guy Fieri hit the stage to introduce Ziggy Marley, and the screams, when Ziggy Marley hit the stage were deafening. The single complaint were the super-long lines to sample the tasty dishes from their favourite chefs. It was, thankfully, worth the wait.
Don't miss it next year!
