Join Chef Jeffrey for an island-inspired cooking class using classic Caribbean recipes and cooking techniques. You'll combine authentic ingredients and fresh spices to create signature dishes bursting with bold flavor. Start with a refreshing shrimp ceviche and crunchy plantain chips. Your entrée is a roasted jerk chicken served with rice and peas. For dessert, use sweetened condensed milk, fresh eggs and a splash of citrus to create a tart key lime pie straight from the islands.
