It's been five years since the Jamaica Food and Drink Festival (JFDF) started its journey of celebrating Jamaican fare while spotlighting numerous culinary personalities. Thanks to the CB Foods team and partnering entities, JFDF is already off to a great start. 

The official kickstarter Pork Palooza: Licensed To Thrill got underway last evening at Palm Drive, Hope Gardens. We dare say it was a fine start to the seven-day foodie affair, which wraps on Sunday, November 3 with Brunch at Strawberry Hill.

At the core of Pork Palooza is the Top Hog competition which affords the highest voted Pork personality the title of "Top Hog". Charissa Henry-Skyers and the Pink Apron Ja team copped the award!

Loop Lens captured these highlights.
