Last weekend, it was all about the epicurean experience as hundreds of patrons flocked to Grizzly's Cove, Richmond Estate, for the inaugural staging of the Jamaica Epicurean Escape. The Gleaner Company was a sponsor of this well-attended event and, naturally, our #teamblue lens was on hand to capture all the moments, from food to social to fashion.

Silks &Tails at the Jewel Paradise Cove was a five-course dining experience where specially invited guests were treated to a five-course dinner, courtesy of a number of the island's executive chefs. Dubbed as a truly unforgettable culinary experience, the Platinum restaurant at the Jewel Paradise Cove was transformed by Tai Flora Luxe into a beautiful dining setting and the Outlook team was on hand to bring you all the fine-dining highlights.
