STAR POWER: Brian Lumley cops regional culinary prize + Grace Kennedy backs Fraser-Pryce's Pocket Rocket Foundation

PAYING IT FORWARD: Through the company's "Buy Viennas and Support Shelly-Ann" campaign, Grace Kennedy has pledged $1 million towards Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce's Pocket Rocket Foundation, promising to donate 10 cents from the sale of each can of Vienna sausages sold between June and December. "Grace is a company that believes in nation-building, especially through giving our young people opportunities that they might not otherwise have had," says Don Wehby, who signed Fraser-Pryce as a Grace brand ambassador in 2008. "To see Shelly-Ann helping those with the will but no way, makes us proud. She too had tough times, so the fact that she is doing this is nothing short of inspiring." The Pocket Rocket Foundation was launched in Kingston this past May. 

WHAT'S COOKING: Jamaican chef extraordinaire Brian Lumley keeps racking up the awards. His latest accolade: Caribbean Chef of the Year won at the recent Taste of the Caribbean culinary showcase in Miami. Lumley bested a field of ten elite chefs from across the region to earn the sole gold medal awarded in the category group for a unique creation using beef. "I am absolutely elated about this victory. It's a great reward for what has been a long journey," he says. "It's not only a win for myself but for Team Jamaica. This was a team effort." Lumley won the Culinary Federation of Jamaica's Chef of the Year award in 2008 and again in 2012.
