A warm Jamaican welcome awaits you from your hostess who will greet you under the great mahogany tree, planted by Sir Winston Churchill in 1953. Be escorted on a scenic walk through a beautiful ornamental garden where you’ll see a wide variety of herbs and tropical plants such as Cat Whiskers, Plumbago and the Canon. Pick an herb or two! At the end of the garden path, experience an awesome panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea! Then it's off to the verandah of the historical and majestic Great House that was once a Fort, where your senses will be tantalized by the different herbs and spices that you’ll be using.
Each person will have their own work station with a clear view of the Chef “Irie” as he instructs and guides you in the preparation of the special blend Jerk Sauce, Coconut ‘Run Down’ with Shrimp, Jamaican festival (knead your own dough), ripe banana fritters and preparation of the callaloo for steaming. Taste the famous Blue Mountain coffee and learn about the many uses of coconut and banana, which are staples in every Jamaican home. After learning how to prepare these delightful meals, you’ll be seated on the lawn under the trees to enjoy your authentic Jamaican lunch, consisting of your own Jerked Chicken. Your meal is served with Fruit Punch or Coconut Water.
