Food & Folklore "Caribbean Connections"
Eatonville's continuing dinner series, Food & Folklore, highlights "Caribbean Connections" with a special prix fixe menu prepared and introduced by guest chef Culinary Artist Chef Oji Ashebre Jaja of Kingston, Jamaica.

Food & Folklore "Caribbean Connections" is part of Eatonville's culinary celebration for Caribbean Heritage Month (June 12 -17). Chef Jaja teams up with Eatonville's Executive Chef Garret Fleming to add an authentic Caribbean flare to the week's brunch, lunch, and dinner menus.

As part of the Food & Folklore event, Dr. Claire Nelson, founder and president of the Institute of Caribbean Studies will share stories and folklore of the Caribbean with an emphasis on food; and Doreen Thompson, founder of the Caribbean Food Alliance will talk about the culinary origins of Caribbean foods and connections to Zora Neale Hurston who wrote the classic "Their Eyes Were Watching God" while in Haiti.

Nominated for the coveted 2010 Chef of the Year award and heralded by the Jamaica Observer as "the next great Jamaican chef", Chef Oji honed his skills at one of the world's foremost luxury hotel chains, The Ritz Carlton, in both Jamaica and the United States. His earlier training began at the Runaway Bay HEART Academy in Jamaica and then later at Johnson & Wales in Florida. Oji's parents gave him the West African name Ashebre, which means "The Artist."  This name graces Oji's culinary services company in Jamaica. Besides passion for his craft, Oji's vision is to further diversify the Caribbean dining landscape by introducing his interpretation of Modern Caribbean Cuisine to all corners of the globe.
