We are living in the digital age and one aspect of this is social media. While for some social media is just a tool for entertainment for others itโ€™s business, a way of building a personal brand. Have you ever scrolled through any social media platform, whether it is TikTok, Instagram Facebook or any other and become totally influenced? Maybe it was someone showing off their vacation in Jamaica that influenced you on booking a trip, or you saw a few posts from some Jamaican food bloggers or vloggers that made you go wow, I would like to try that.

New! Take a piece of Jamaica with you๐Ÿ’ƒ!

Savour the memories!  Now you can get your authentic Jamaican souvenir items, as well as traditional Jamaican herbs, spices and housewares on our popular e-store. Click Here to learn more.

Food is a big part of the Jamaican culture and our Jamaican food bloggers capitalize on this for our benefit. You have those who use our traditional ingredients in unique ways to create tantalizing dishes that we can then attempt to recreate from home. Others visit the popular and upcoming restaurants giving you a full review on what to expect, and others make it their duty to find the hidden gems that most have never heard about.

Here are 7 of the most popular Jamaican food bloggers

Jamaican Food Bloggers

Chef Andre Sewell | AndreCooks

Chef Andre, a graphic designer and web developer by trade, is passionate about the culinary arts and has appeared on TVJ in Jamaica. When he was 12 years old, his parents started teaching him how to cook. With age, Chef Andre's passion for culinary arts grew as he explored flavours and learned new cooking methods. He is known mostly for his iconic twist to traditional dishes such as his ackee and saltfish stuffed jerk chicken and his oxtail burger with plantain fries.

Rameish Desouza | Rameish Kitchen

With his catchword โ€œWoiyoiโ€ and his odd twists on Jamaican ingredients, Rameish took social media by storm with his innovative dishes and has been growing ever since. Some of his signature dishes include blue rice, red stripe beer bbq chicken, mint roti and banana festival. Desouza has now opened his own restaurant and has been getting great reviews.

Felesha Francis | Food Crave Ja

The owner of the Instagram account @foodcraveja is Felesha Francis. With the intention of embracing my love for food from various local cuisines as well as home-cooked meals, FoodCraveJa was founded. This blog serves as a platform for advertising the wide range of choices available in Jamaica. So, for instance, if you're looking for a beautiful restaurant to eat with friends or going on a date with that particular someone.

Jessica Hylton Leckie| Jessica in the Kitchen

One of the first and most well-known local food bloggers is Jessica Hylton Leckie. Jessica In the Kitchen, her award-winning site, has primarily vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free recipes. On her Instagram, Jessica also posts images of her delicious concoctions and fascinating excursions.

Pink Apron Ja

Chef Charissa Henry founded the upscale catering business and food van Pink Apron Ja. The Instagram profile for Pink Apron lists the dates, times, and menus for its food truck pop-ups. You'll want to follow Pink Apron Ja to learn when you can get your hands on some of the loaded seafood nachos and French toast packed with mascarpone and berry compote.

Jamaican Foodie Chronicles

This blog is about a Jamaican girl travelling with her pallet across Jamaica. Its goal is to depict cuisine using a lens of zeal and originality. The goal of Jamaican Foodie Chronicles is to serve as a guide for both locals and tourists that come to our stunning island. Sometimes it can be very difficult to decide where to dine, and who doesn't enjoy the challenge of trying new foods? In the blog, you'll see a Foodie Guide under the highlights. The foodie guides allow you to locate the places you want to visit based on your "food mood" and provide you with a detailed overview of each restaurant, caterer, pop-up, and bakery. Just keep in mind that if it serves food, it will be listed in the guides.


In 2019, Asha felt a strong want to share her love of cuisine and travel with her friends, IG followers, and complete strangers who she encountered and who had many inquiries about Jamaica and what we had to offer. At that moment, QuickRun876 was born. She considers herself a professional dry-land tourist (Jamaican term for someone who loves travelling around the island), Asha has found so much excitement in touring our lovely island and capturing everything she sees, especially during COVID-19. Anyone who is passionate about food from all cultures, discovering hidden gems, or simply having a simple curiosity about Jamaican culture should read her articles.

These Jamaican food bloggers will not just influence you on dishes to try and restaurants to visit, they are entertaining and great for a good laugh.
