FROM OUR KITCHEN TO YOURS

At Couples, we love introducing our guests to the flavors of Jamaica – but true Jamaican cuisine is a multicultural story richly influenced by the cooking techniques, flavors, and spices of Africa, Asia and Europe. Each week, we'll share a few special recipes from Couples' award-winning Executive Chef Stefan Spath whose passion for fresh local ingredients is captured in every dish he creates.
