USVI Ambassadors Producer Debuts New Culinary Series With USVI Chefs Saturday

Art / Culinary / News / Virgin Islands / January 14, 2017

Netfa Romain of JNR Media Solutions, creator of “USVI Ambassadors with Netfa Romain,” is introducing an all new docu-series to the territory called “Taste of the Caribbean: Team USVI”.

Mr. Romain and the USVI Hotel and Tourism Association teamed up to bring the series to television screens territory-wide. “Taste of the Caribbean: Team USVI” is a new culinary arts TV docu-series focusing on the USVI Culinary Arts team and their journey to Miami Florida to compete against the Caribbean’s best chefs for culinary gold at “Taste of the Caribbean”.

“I first learned about Taste of the Caribbean over a decade ago while covering the event for CBS-TV2’s News2 and during this experience I thought this would be a great television show,” Mr. Romain, News 2’s former news director, said.

Fresh off of the heels of his 4th season of USVI Ambassadors, the local director and producer reached out to Lisa Hamilton, President of the USVI Hotel and Tourism Association with the idea.

The show will begin broadcasting on Saturday, January 14th at 8:00 p.m. and will air for five straight Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. until the finale, according to a press release issued late Friday.

The show features USVI Culinary Team members Shaun Brian, Regine Abraham, Michael Matthew, Edward McNamara, Tatiana Connor, Kilian Werner, Natalie Buckner, Michael Grau, and Frank Robinson.

Mr. Romain says he hopes the show will spread pride amongst the USVI, knowing that such talented individuals are living and working in the territory and taking the culinary game to the next level. He says he hopes to return to the 2017 competition with his team to produce a new show and hopefully expand on the foundation JNR Media Solutions and the USVI Hotel and Tourism Association has built in this first production, according to the release.

Mr. Romain thanked CBSTV2 and sponsors of the show, WICO, International Capital & Management Company, First Bank and the USVI Department of Tourism.
