Part of Caribbean Fest

Chefs and foodies, Natacha Mendes, Denai Moore and Riaz Phillips, swap stories and family recipes about their favourite dishes and foods of the Caribbean region.  Join them for this lively conversation brimming with the taste of the Caribbean.

Natacha Mendes was born in Angola but has lived her life between China, Portugal and UK and has recently completed an MA in African Development at LSE. She aspires to play an influential role in cultural policy making and creative industries in Africa and the Caribbean. Since 2014, her work has evolved to what is now Taste Black History - an international platform focused on research and promotion of African gastronomy, sustainable agriculture and tourism.

Denai Moore is a British-Jamaican artist who rose to prominence as a guest vocalist on SBTRKT's 2014 album Wonder Where We Land. Moore was born in Spanish Town, Jamaica, where she started to learn to play keyboard from her father. Her family moved to Stratford, in East London when she was 10. Since 2017, Moore has run Dee’s Table, a vegan Jamaican culinary business. It mainly comprises supper clubs and stalls in London, and has recently ventured to Los Angeles.

Riaz Phillips is a writer, photographer and occasional DJ. His first independently published book Belly Full: Caribbean Food in the UK, was inspired by his own Jamaican upbringing and became an award winning endeavour sold in shops, bookstores, and galleries across the world. His latest project, Save the Last Dub, is devoted to documenting the last remaining Reggae Record shops in the world.
