This week’s recipe comes from Chef Jamila De Souza. Growing up in a Trinidadian and Bajan family, the Trinidad native creates boldly flavored, deeply satisfying dishes for her family and clients.
Jamila’s love of cooking goes back before working as a pastry chef or as a teen. She knew she wanted to cook when she was 5 years old.
Once Jamila finished her formal education in high school, she immediately enrolled in the Youth Training Employment and Partnership Programme (YTEPP), where she studied catering and cake making and excelled. Jamila then worked as a lead cook in several establishments for about 10 years before retiring to start her own catering business.
