Posted by Shanelle Weir on February 23, 2014

Four Jamaicans copped spots in the Caribbean Journal’s top 25 chefs of the region in 2014. Brian Lumley, who landed at number eight, has experienced great success at just 27-years-old. He took home the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association’s Caribbean Chef-of-the-Year honour in 2013. And now he is doing “extremely well in his latest venture”, a restaurant called 689 by Brian Lumley in New Kingston.

Collin Brown, a native of Trelawny, was number 14. "Chef Collin Brown has taken Caribbean food to the most discerning eaters in the United Kingdom and Europe. Now, he’s quickly building a budding culinary empire," Caribbean Journal said.

At number 23 is Nigel Spence. Spence has made multiple appearances on the Food Network where he competed against celebrity chef Bobby Flay in a jerk rib-eye grill off and won. "The Kingston native continues to impress at his widely-praised Ripe Kitchen & Bar outside of New York City. Spence, who is also a CJ contributor, is working to take Jamaican cuisine to the next level," said the Journal.And Sarah Mair, at number 20, is a former Executive Chef at Ortanique Camana Bay in Grand Cayman. Mair has now set out on her own path with her new venture, ‘Cookin n Tings’.

Caribbean Journal, based in Florida, reports on travel, lifestyle and the politics of over 21 territories in the region.
