I Teach People About Jamaica’s Culture & Sell Jamaican Food
Although I am a trained and certified chef, these days I spend most of my time outside of the kitchen and either in the office as a freelance copywriter or managing one of my various business ventures, such as welcoming volunteers and vacationers to Jamaica. Although I am not currently working as a chef, my love of Jamaican food and my country’s rich culture is why I always make time to help spread the magic of brand Jamaica to the world as often as I can.
Since 2014 I have been helping visitors to Jamaica truly experience our rich culture, either through my cooking classes, teaching them how to speak Patois (our local dialect), guiding hundreds of cultural tours and excursions such as the Kingston Highlights tour, and even selling local treats such as fruit cakes (Christmas cakes) and other baked delights to customers around the globe.
I now offer several virtual lessons/experiences that will allow you to dive into the Jamaican culture from the comfort of your own home, no matter where you are in the world. I also offer traditional Jamaican food items for sale with worldwide delivery available.
Why Should I Learn About Jamaican Food & Culture from Jomo?
This is a fair question! There are several reasons why you should learn about Jamaica’s food and culture from me, or purchase your Jamaican food items from me, which are:
- I am a trained cook, having been trained and certified by the HEART College of Hospitality in Ocho Rios, Jamaica
- I have worked and trained in the hospitality industry for over 11 years
- I have worked in tourism for the past 7 years, 6 of those I have been operating my own travel businesses
- Speaking of operating my own businesses, I have launched several brands that offer a wide range of travel packages to Jamaica, such as volunteer trips, internships, study abroad programs, excursions, vacation packages, and travel medical insurance
- I have guided hundreds of visitors on numerous tours and experiences in Jamaica, such as cooking classes, museum tours, community walking tours, city highlight tours, historical tours, and more
- I know Jamaica very well, and eagerly share my knowledge with the world whenever possible

What Clients Say About Me
Perfect Visit to Kingston
We meet Jomo on his internet site and he gave us a really nice time in Kingston and showed us the whole Kingston with his driver Dwayne.
We wouldn’t have been able to see as much as we did if it weren’t for those two guys.
I strongly recommend Jomo for your guide to visit Jamaica and Kingston.
Unforgettable experience! All of you should try it. It was only my first-time volunteering and I’d love to do it again through the same Jamaica International Projects.
A Blast In Kingston
We spend in totally two weeks in Jamaica, and the days in Kingston was the best time ever!
Jomo and his driver Dwayne took us to see the most parts of Kingston, shopping malls, markets, the Port Royal and we also drove thru the ghetto, New Kingston and by the Bob Marley museum.
Jomo’s Mother, Mrs. Barnett served us homecooked Jamaican cuisine. She is a lovely lady. The Bacchanal party was a blast! We were dancing for several hours to the soca music. The Jamaican can really party, and dance!
Amazing trip, amazing experiences. JIP the best for Jamaica
This has been a fabulous trip, 18 months planning resulted in our having as near as perfect experience as possible. Spending time in the children’s home was life-changing and bonds made with the home will last a long time. The Grand Port Royal hotel was a great place to stay and was more than we expected. The caterers provided us with great food and were so accommodating when we were late. The excursions were amazing and all of it was made possible by the fantastic attention to detail by the wonderful Jomo.
This was a life changing experience. The children were so great. They gave me and taught me so much more than I gave them. This was one of the most satisfying trips I’ve ever done. Jomo, his mother, and Dwayne were great hosts and caretakers. Jamaica and its people will forever be in my heart.
