Pork Palooza: 20 October, 7pm – 11pm
Palm Drive, Hope Gardens

If pork is your thing that Pork Palooza is a must-attend event. Think all-you-can-eat crispy crackling, juicy pork belly, perfectly grilled chops and tender fall-off-the-bone ribs blanketed in divine secret sauce… If that doesn’t have you licking your lips shall we mention dessert? Jamaica’s top pork masters will compete at Pork Palooza for the “Top Hog” title.

D’Vine: 21 October, 11am – 2pm
White Mist, Peter’s Rock

A Sunday brunch in the hills overlooking the city, catered by two master chefs, D’Vine will delight your palate and satisfy your inner wine connoisseur. This is a sophisticated, indulgent event, with impeccable food and wine pairings.

Chopstix: 24 October, 7pm – 11pm
Zen Lawns, Hope Zoo

Answer the culinary call of the Far East at Chopstix. At this event sample sumptuous delights from all corners of Asia like Vietnamese pork belly, Peking duck, naans and chutneys, and dive into a smorgasbord of sushi and sashimi.

Taking a bite of something hot and fried to crispy perfection is oh so satisfying. Imagine crispy pork skin, pan fried tenderloin or jerk fried chicken in a balsamic, scotch bonnet reduction, and you’ve got a meal to remember! Wash all the goodies down with some delicious ice cold local and international beers for the perfect foodie night. This year Crisp is taking things a step further, heading downtown for an edgy, urban atmosphere unlike anything else.

Picante: October 26, 7pm – 11pm
The Ruins, UWI Mona Visitors’ Lodge

This is an event that’s not for faint of tongue. Picante will take you for a ride on the spicier side of life, bringing the most delicious burn to the table. Smooth Jamaican rum will help you to wash it all down. Jamaica’s first gourmet spicy food fest is an exploration of seasonings and unique spicy blends for those who can handle it…
