I am a wife and mother. Born and raised in jamaica. I began cooking at the age of 9. I come from a long line of chefs and restauranteurs. I am the former owner of Reggae Bay Cafe and am currently a personal chef. My professional experience stems from managing small family restaurants to cooking at the USA largest coast guard base for 500-750 people daily.
To obtain my own cooking show that will be veiwed nation wide, that will teach others how to cook gourmet on a budget using ingredients they already have or that is inexpensive to purchase. To publish my own series of cook books and to someday form a foundation that will provide a temporary source of shelter for homeless famillies. providing for the family both physically and spiritually (with an emphasis on keeping the family together and uplifting the spirit of the head of household)
Cooking of Course! I also sing and write songs, musicals and poems. I a passionate about working with the youth and young adults, the elderly and the homeless. I have been instrumental in the formation of many programs that were and are still beneficial for teens aswell as nursing home residents. I also love to crochet. I try to make it my task to make a blanket and hat for each new baby, and a blanket or throw for each senior sorrounding me.
HA HA HA! It has not been that long Trovers. I love and miss being up here things have been really hectic lately. I'll be updating soon.
Thanks so much aquila for your words of encouragement. Matana I'll be sure to bring some vegetarian/vegan foods and i am sure you know that helping others brings more joy to you than it does the person you help. If we would all strive(not for greatness in possesions) but greatness in love what a world this would be. Reniel Billups
Hey Reniel, thanks for checking out My Stage. I love to barbeque as you can see. It has been my passion for the last 8 years. I will be posting a video where I debate the Eastern Carolina vs. Western Carolina styles. I would love you feed back since you are from the Carolinas. My wife and I checked out your videos and we now want to learn more about Jamaican food, especially Jerk food. I guess that will be my next style of barbeque to learn.Charles Dorak
I bought my pit from Meadow Creek BBQ out of Lancaster, PA. The owner is an Amish welder. Great craftsmanship. Have you thought of a bullet-type smoker? Weber makes one called Smokey Mountain. They come in two sizes and you can buy one at Amazon. If you really want a pit cooker, there are too many for me to list here. I can send you them off feedback.Charles Dorak
I'm a vegetarian and before I read your profile goals I thought you should have your own cooking show by now. You are amazing and personable to the viewer. I wish you much success in 09. Keep moving forward and I will see you on your own cooking show! Selena Brown
