What better way for international chef Briana Riddock to celebrate her return to Jamaica than with a dinner party

Dubbed ‘Dinner with Friends’, the Saturday, May 21 soirée was brought to life with elements that captured the garden-chic theme — fresh flowers and greenery, coloured goblets, and rattan products culled from local artisans. The intimate group immortalised special moments with photos in between forkfuls of Riddock’s sumptuous five-course meal.

No stranger to foodies on The Rock, Riddock’s credentials are impressive and many: Curator of her highly sought-after dinner party series, Table of Influence; founder of Atlanta-based culinary media start-up and boutique catering company The Seasoning Bottle LLC; and owner of women’s lifestyle brand #dopegirlscook. Not one to rest on her laurels, the current pastry chef at Rock Steady Atlanta continues to pursue culinary excellence, most recently winning the Food Network’s Raid the Fridge competition and being named Atlanta Magazine’s top three rising star black chefs in Atlanta.
