Gastronomy was at its finest at the June 10-12 staging of Jamaica’s first premium luxury camping experience — CampLuxe. Amongst those supporting the weekend event, which was held at Frenchman’s Cove Resort in Portland, was Rainforest Caribbean. This support afforded Chef Bobby Walker of popular Port Antonio eatery Bobby’s Cafe, Grill & Bar the opportunity to show off his skills as a poissonnier. His weekend menu offerings included shrimp alfredo, seafood boil, and roasted conch and were worthy of note. But, the memory of the crawfish & mussels medley — served beachside at CampLuxe Cafe on Saturday — remains two weeks later. Bravo Chef! Bravo!
