He won the Silver Award in the Chef of Year category and as team captain for Trinidad and Tobago, Chef Raymond and team also received the coveted Gold Award for the last two consecutive years.
It goes without saying that Chef Raymond is passionate about developing his culinary skills and we had the pleasure of meeting him at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Port of Spain, Trinidad where he regularly serves the famous: Centroâ€™s Jam-Jam. Chef Raymond cooked up this meat trio in lightening speed and you will be happy to know, that as always, it is yet another simple and easy dish to prepare at home.
