The James Beard Foundation recently named St Lucian chef Nina Compton its Best Chef: South. The star chef will be hosting an intimate pop-up dinner at the Skylark Negril Beach Resort on Saturday, July 28 at 7:00 pm. Well known in the US, Compton was also named one of Food & Wine's “Best New Chefs” in 2017 and was runner-up on Top Chef in 2013.

Hosted by Kingston-born 2016 Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards Chef of the Year and Chopped champion Andre Fowles, Compton will prepare a five-course jerk-themed menu highlighting the versatility of Jamaica's renowned ingredient and will utilise fresh produce sourced from Rockhouse's organic garden.

The dinner, priced at US$200 per person, is inclusive of beverage, tax and gratuity and will benefit the Rockhouse Foundation — the charitable arm of Skylark and Rockhouse hotels.
