Brian Johnson Jammin Jerk - Cooking Demonstration

The Parramasala Pantry will be filled with rich aromas as Brian Johnson from Jammin Jerk cooks up his authentic signature marinades and sauces from his home country of Jamaica!

Jammin’ JeRk – A Taste of Jamaica, is celebrating after winning (2 GOLD medals) at the recently held 2016 Australian Food Awards (AFA) for their (MILD and HOT marinades).

Jammin’ JeRk started out as a pop-up at local Sydney markets in 2012 with a passion for food and bringing the taste of Jamaica to the Australian public. In 2014, it was decided to provide products that customers could have their own piece of Jamaica at home and so began the journey of the Jammin Jerk products with a few more in development.

“This is our first time entering our products into this prestigious competition and we couldn’t be more proud of the outcome.  It is a testament to the love and hard work put into making a great vegan, gluten free, all natural, no preservative product to be enjoyed by all Australians,” said Brian Johnson - Jammin’ JeRk owner.

The AFA, conducted by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) builds on the success of RASV’s Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards (RMFFA) and is Australia’s leading national premium food awards program.

The awards offer entrants the opportunity to benchmark against set criteria; receive invaluable independent feedback from industry experts; and be rewarded for excellence.
