Hundreds heeded the clarion call and descended upon the grounds of Devon House, Thursday, September 29, in search of good food and beverages, camaraderie, and positive vibes. It had been two years since the last gathering in this fashion of the Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards, the Caribbean's premier food event. And, the 23rd staging exceeded its billing. It was, in the words of many a patron: "A smashing success!"

Thursday Food takes you inside the Shikima Hinds, Main Event, M-Style event with catering services handled by Maurine Capleton of MC Decor.
