The team comprised of Davina Laylor, Justine-Renee Jarrett and Burchell Gordon and they whet their appetites and tantalized their taste buds all over the island. From Evita’s in Ocho Rios, Mystic Thai in Montego Bay to Fromage Gourmet Market & Bistro and the Terrace at The Terra Nova in Kingston, it was certainly foodie heaven.
