Arriving in Qatar 9 years ago, I was a stay at home husband and the father of one son. After trying a few different things I finally found my passion and purpose which was cooking tasty food which my mother had taught me from an early age.I knew how to cook traditional Caribbean food but I would always try and put a twist and implement my own style on the presentation and taste.

After being complimented on my delicious food at various home events and encouraged by my wife, I spotted a niche in the market and decided to start my own jerk takeaway business from home. I perfected my recipes including my own jerk marinade and sweet sauces which are made from scratch. I have been serving up culinary jerk takeaway dishes from home for the last 3 years, which have received nothing but 5 stars from my loyal customers.

Now the father of 3 and the Founder of Ray’s Jerk Shack, the only Caribbean jerk cuisine in Qatar. I was alsofeatured in the Jamaica Observer newspaper which is not only causing a buzz here, but also back in Jamaica.

I have now secured a premises in which I aim to serve the wider population in Qatar, which in turn will help to boost the economy and put Jamaica on the map.

So if your passing through this side of the world do pass tru!
