Please join GCG in congratulating Chef Daniel, who was featured in the On Board Magazine issued to Business Class passengers for Caribbean Airlines (CAL) out of Montego Bay, Jamaica for the months of March and April.
Following is the article from the magazine:
"Jamaican-based, Chef Daniel Schweizer is a Swiss who is passionate about fusing Caribbean food with European influences. With classical French training, a wide knowledge of Italian regional cuisine and having lived in Jamaica for 27 years, Schweizer intermingles his culinary roots with local ingredients to develop what he calls, "Caribbean contemporary food."
Schweizer’s entrée for this month's business class travellers on flights departing from Jamaica for Toronto, New York and Trinidad is Jerk Coffee-Rubbed Beef Tenderloin, served with turned cornmeal with shredded cheese, tropical fruit chutney with a hint of ginger, plus pumpkin ragoût, coconut-poached cho-cho fan and coconut rundown sauce.
Schweizer has worked as Executive Chef at top Jamaican establishments like Morgan's Harbour Hotel, Temple Hall Estate, Plantation Inn and for the last 21 years at Goddard Catering Group, so he truly understands the Caribbean palate and the impact that regional cuisine can have, especially on tourists. "We, in the Caribbean, are producing excellent food and many times, when someone leaves the islands, it is the last Caribbean meal they get for a good while. There is tourism, eco-tourism, medical tourism, cruise ship Tourism – so… why not culinary tourism."
CONGRATS Daniel!!! Thank you for making us all proud!
