Two Sisters and a Meal
There’s really no better way to sum up our life history - why, you may ask? The answer is simple. Our life has always revolved around food: cooking it, serving it, selling it, eating it...and so after years of doing the food thing one way, we’ve decided to do it a different way - which is, as always, our way.
We began our life in the food industry at a tender age with a small Café that served up coffee, sandwiches, salads and pasta and subsequently grew into a full scale fine dining restaurant known for its Mediterranean inspired modern Caribbean food. Shortly thereafter we went on to launch a successful off premise catering and event planning business. Since as far back as we can remember, food and entertaining have been not only our passion, but our livelihood. We have been serving up our brand of Caribbean cuisine all over the island of Jamaica for the past 17 years, from corporate theme events for 2000 guests to intimate formal dinners for 12.
Two Sisters and a Meal is thus the brainchild of two Jamaican sisters who are business partners, foodies, lovers of world travel, avid cultural explorers, crazy history buffs, adorers of the arts, soul seekers and well known “fetein' queens”. We are passionate about exploring both the old and new Caribbean by showcasing authentic island living in as real a way as possible, using all the things we love most: food, the arts, history, music, culture and lifestyle - our goal is to create high quality, fun and educational media productions that give you a taste of what it is to grow up, live, work, eat, party and play in the islands.
We invite you to experience the true Caribbean, our Caribbean, with us.
