Norma Shirley has been called the "Julia Child of the Caribbean. With her generosity of spirit (and decidedly feisty nature in the kitchen) Norma has introduced legions of fans to the world of Jamaican cuisine. Born in Jamaica, and trained as a nurse, Norma didn't develop a love of food until her mid-twenties, when she had to learn to cook for her American husband.

Now "Norma's restaurants in Jamaica are must-stops for celebrities and politicians who equate Norma's flavourful cooking with the breezy essence of the Caribbean itself.
