Origins of Jamrock Eatz
Jamrock Eatz originated from a deep-rooted Caribbean tradition of using herbs and spices, a culinary legacy instilled by Chef Shanna's grandmother; Mama Shirley who joyfully cooked for a large family of 15 or more every day. Inspired by these early experiences in her grandmother's kitchen, Chef Shanna realized her passion for cooking and the joy of feeding others was more than just a family affair; it was a calling that needed to be shared with the world. With Jamrock Eatz, she brings this rich Caribbean heritage to Central Florida, offering personalized culinary experiences that echo the warm, family-oriented meals of her childhood. From intimate family dinners to large gatherings, every dish at Jamrock Eatz is a celebration of Caribbean culture and the love for creating memorable delicious experiences.
