We have so much to share with you and will be doing so bit by bit because trust, me you would need a week for and in-depth update in one go! One of the things we are particularly happy about is the fact that Jamaica’s second food magazine, “Indulge” has featured Chef Lij Heron (in an impressive 5-page spread) as Executive Chef of Sandals Royal Plantation, in their current issue.
Chef Lij is featured in Indulge Magazine
As you may remember, we left Dubai in the summer of last year. The truth is that we were seriously contemplating on moving to London because he got an amazing offer to be the corporate chef for a restaurant group there. However, when we were faced with en expat offer by Sandals in our home country, we decided to go home. It was an opportunity to be home, to share the things we had experienced in a combined period of 18 years as expats and it would be great for our toddler to be around family longer than 2 weeks out of a year.
Sandals Royal Plantation is the only Sandals property in Jamaica that holds a 5star rating. They are headed by great GM Arnold Nugent and a really responsive and accommodating staff. In the current issue of Indulge magazine, he was photographed by noted Jamaican lifestyle photographer, Dwayne Watkins on property at the hotel. Chef Lij created some delectable dishes especially for Indulge magazine that are also showcased in the article. Kudos to the culinary team at Sandals Royal Plantation for their work and to Chef Lij’s second in command, Chef Lamar Lawrence for assisting with the photo shoot.
One sweet thing I noticed is my high school classmate Simon Levy was also featured for his hams. I am definitely looking forward to sampling those one day! I had no idea Simon had gone into food as well. Go Simon!
We have since moved on from Jamaica because God works in mysterious ways. If you follow us on Instagram, you can probably figure out where we are. Details on the move will be coming soon. Hopefully you have subscribed to receive our updates in your email as this is the best way to keep in the loop with us.
This will be an active year ahead of us. Lots of goals to accomplish and we look forward to sharing more of our journey with you.
