On this episode of our podcast …
JuicyChef sits down with two famous Jamaican personalities and arbiters of good taste. There are not enough words to describe maverick Master Chef Colin Hylton, multifaceted lifestyle impresario, bon vivant, and avid traveller and Angelie Spencer, former Miss Jamaica Universe 1994, founder of ASH (Ashley Spencer Home), interior and furniture designer and the brain behind Shop Local Jamaica, an initiative to support the island’s small business sector. Their lively conversation covers a lot of ground from etiquette, being role models, old fashioned values, beauty and body image, trends that demonise or fetishise food, customer service, restoration of old things and living respectfully and harmoniously. Obviously, travel stories are in the mix from Colin’s street food jaunts in Asia and Angelie’s Michelin fine dining experiences in Europe.
Drink of the Episode: JuicyChef’s Caribbean Spritz.
Editor’s Note: Our guest and dear friend Colin Hylton suddenly passed away on April 6, 2020 sending shockwaves through Jamaica. The fact that this would have been one of his last interviews is especially poignant for us and it breaks our hearts he will never get to tune in or watch the vodcast version on our YouTube channel. Nyam & Trod extends our sincerest condolences to his family, friends and all of those his life touched in his special and inimitable way. May his soul rest in peace and legacy continue to thrive with the island’s next generation of chefs.
