FOODIE AFFAIR: Last Thursday, Jamaica’s biggest culinary bash, The Food Awards (put on by the Jamaica Observer), took over the lawns of Devon House for its 14th incarnation. A who's who of local and foreign luminaries, as well as the social cognoscenti, were on hand for this year’s open-air event and the ensuing awards ceremony, which paid tribute to some of the food industry’s brightest. Below, a sampling of the highlights:
EN PLEIN AIR: Former PM Edward Seaga and wife, Carla, enjoyed the company of mega-mogul Gordon 'Butch' Stewart.
AL FRESCO: Deserving 'Chef on the Rise' honoree Brian Lumley posed with US Ambassador Pamela Bridgewater.
REALITY STARS: Mission Catwalk season two finalist Rebecca Stirm looked radiant next to dashing editor-director Mykal Cushnie.
GARDEN VARIETY: The musical messenjah himself, Luciano, was spotted tucking into, we assume, a meat-free salad plate.
