I am affectionately called "Ms Cook JA" and my passion for cooking began as a young girl in Jamaica when my grandmother, who was a cook, taught me my first traditional Caribbean dish (escovitched fish). By the time I was in my teens I was selling Jamaican cakes and juices to Caribbean clubs and retail outlets in Hackney, London. I returned to Jamaica and sold street food.
Returning to London again in 1994 and I became a Play Group Leader also a Therapeutic Counsellor. Cooking classic Caribbean dishes is my first love. I cared for my paralysed mother over 6 years and when she passed away in 2015 I started up Grandmas Old Time Cooking in memory of her and my late departed grandmother.
