The Rousseau sisters, Suzanne and Michelle, pulled out all the stops Sunday last as they hosted the final event of the 2018 Jamaica Food and Drink Festival season. The West India Supper was a spectacular homage to modern heritage dining that also did double duty as a Caribbean epicurean history lesson. Held throughout Jamaica House (yes, dining tables were spread across the courtyard and verandahs), the sisters created a breathtaking event with the support of Tai Flora Luxe, pâtissière Nadine Burie and Select Brands wines.

The event attracted some of the most recognisable names in business and philanthropy. Opportunity strikes once, we're told, and this was the ultimate networking opportunity.

The afternoon began with cocktails and a robust spread of appetisers, after which guests settled in to partake of a feast fit for the plantocracy. Watching servers sweep across the dining areas of Jamaica House allowed, for a brief moment, the feeling of being a guest at a grand banquet in the early 20th century.

The West India Supper was, in a word, grand. Wednesday Social has highlights.
