Taste the Caribbean with Chef Gavin Kearney

By: Roberto Ferdman

With long hair, groovy Rastafarian hats and his laid back Caribbean vibe, Chef Gavin Kearney knows how to play it cool.  But when he's hired to cater a homecoming bash for locals Colin and Barbara Reeve and their daughter Tammi, it's time to turn up the heat. To find inspiration, Gavin travels all over his native St. Thomas, learning from organic farms, legendary Frenchtown fish markets, one-woman "Frenchie" style bakeries, and a luxury restaurant on a historical sugar mill plantation. Showcasing everything he learned along the way, Chef Gavin brings his new culinary tools to the table of the extravagant dinner at the Reeve's Villa, exceeding even Tammi's lofty expectations.
