Hugh A. Sinclair is better known as Chef Irie. Currently a South Florida resident, Chef Irie is originally from the island of Jamaica. He is a professionally certified personal chef and caterer with a passion for amazing food and great service.
Our chef, and host of Seasons 1 and 2 of “Taste the Islands”, has an interesting history. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Architecture from the University of Florida in Gainesville. Then he switched focus to earn an Associate’s degree in the Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales University in North Miami.
He has worked at some of South Florida’s premier establishments including Turnberry Isle Resort, Charlie’s Crab, Cascades and Bimini Boatyard. At these outlets, he gained valuable professional experience in cuisine far beyond that reflecting his Caribbean upbringing. Today he fuses the influence of the islands with the influence of his travels through Europe and the Far East. His audience can see his palpable love for learning about cuisine from around the world. Stay tuned for him and his new co-hosts, Haitian Chef Thia and island explorer Lisa Lee in the upcoming 2017 season starting in June on Create TV and on PBS stations around the country.
Asanyah received her graduate degree at Central Saint Martins in London, England and got a Master of Arts in Design Studies. She has travelled the world taking in the local fashion and culture, even teaching and working in West Africa.
