Following her victory in the 2015 Miss Jamaica World competition on August 15, at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, the newly crowned Dr Sanneta Myrie has been on a whirlwind of interviews, public speaking engagements, and has attended numerous events. However, one thing that would shock most about this country girl is that she is not only an academic, but she knows her way around the kitchen.

Dr Myrie recently invited celebrity chef Charles Mattocks and the camera crew of Conversations in Grace Kitchens to join her as she created one of her favourite meals - coconut steamed fish with sweet mashed potatoes. Enjoy.
