Calling all Pork Lovers! We kick off JFDF with all things pork. If crispy pork belly or smoked, smothered ribs get your mouth watering, then this event is for you. Sink your teeth into-fall-off-the-bone-tender meat, and cast your vote for the most innovative pork master, who will walk away with the title of “Top Hog”.
ALL INCLUSIVE “FOOD CYAH DONE”
Swirl, Sip and Savour

Oriental With A Twist
Sizzling Oriental fare and Caribbean flavours come together in an East meets West extravaganza at our Zen Gardens. Savour traditional favourites from all corners of Asia, like deep fried wantons, naans and chutneys, sushi rolls and sashimi, coupled with some “off menu” delicacies. Come dance with the dragons and enjoy an exotic evening in the East.
Crisp Fare & Beer
Who doesn’t love the perfect crunch? This year, Crisp kicks it up a notch, by taking us downtown for an edgy, urban street fest unlike anything Kingston has ever seen. Come satisfy your guilty cravings with juicy pan-fried tenderloin, fresh salads, crispy chicken glazed in hot-and-sweet sauce, dusted with the perfect spices. Now top that off with a refreshing glass (or a few) of crisp, ice-cold, local and international beers – mmm good!
Not For The Faint Of Tongue…
The heat returns with Kingston’s ultimate spicy food fest, and these fiery dishes will leave you speechless. Explore the world of seasonings, spices and melt in your mouth flavours, but wash it down with the rich notes of smooth Jamaican rum.
Beware – not for the faint of tongue.

Modern Heritage Dining
Modern Heritage Dining is the Rousseau’s personal homage to the traditional Caribbean diet, and is an elevated presentation of the culinary heritage, personality and classic style of the West Indies with simple, pure, modern interpretations of the region’s most traditional and delicious ingredients.
A modern heritage dining experience is born from the culinary habits inherited from slavery and colonisation, reinterprets them for the modern epicurean and presents them in a sophisticated, elegant and breezy setting.
