Here’s how you can learn to cook Caribbean classics

Birmingham’s first Caribbean cookery school has opened.

The Tan Rosie Foods Cookery School is the brainchild of mother and daughter combo Lee and Monica Sylvester.

The school comes after a successful eight years in business with Lee and Monica travelling the length and breadth of the country spreading the love for the Tan Rosie products.

The Tan Rosie team has been selling their range of homemade meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan-friendly dishes as well as hampers, rubs, chutneys, cakes and fudge for all the family to enjoy since 2010.

Around 100 people attended the launch at the school in Witton.

Lee said: It was such a great night.

“The support from family, friends, partner companies and the media was really overwhelming.

“It was an emotional night as the cookery school has been a dream for a good few years now and to see it finally launched really was a dream come true.

“It’s such an exciting time for Tan Rosie Foods and I cannot wait to welcome budding Caribbean cooks through our doors.

“We have already made bookings for a selection of courses running until the end of the year with lots of enquiries for next year’s sessions!”
