Jessica Moore – Career – 24 – George Town

Jessica Moore is a self-proclaimed food enthusiast, and the 24-year-old is set to be a major influence in the Cayman Islands’ food industry. Jessica’s passion for the culinary arts started after high school. Her desire to explore her passion led her to shadow local chefs, to learn the tricks of the trade, all while performing her day job as a property manager. After a year of learning, Jessica decided to share her knowledge and passion with the world.

In 2016, Jessica launched her blog and catering company, Taste This Life. In the blog, and on social media, Jessica shares her recipes and tips, highlights local farmers, vendors and cottage industry entrepreneurs, and features trends that peak her interest. Jessica has a special interest in the Farm-to-Table movement, which promotes the serving of locally grown food and creating relationships with the farmers who grow the produce. Indeed, the self-taught chef loves to use local ingredients in her culinary creations, and is more than happy to share with anyone who would have a seat at her table.

Jessica’s food chronicles helped her win a blogging competition, where the main prize was a chance to cover one of Cayman Islands’ premier foodie events – Cayman Cookout. Taking place every January at the Ritz-Carlton, the event is hosted by celebrity chef Eric Ripert, with regular appearances from other famed culinary masters such as Anthony Bourdain and Jose Andres. Jessica also covered Taste of Cayman, the national drink and food festival, where she also hosted a cooking class.

Food is not the only arena where Jessica has found success. In high school, she served as a peer counsellor, participated in sports, and was involved in community events. She graduated with honours and full house colours. She participated in the Global Young Leaders’ Conference where she was selected as an International Scholar Laureate. The hard work, dedication and passion that Jessica has displayed since her teens have shaped her career as a young adult.  Given her drive she will doubtless continue to be a tastemaker in Cayman’s culinary scene.
