Four third-year students from the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) School of Hospitality and Tourism Management are this year’s recipients of the Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards scholarship.

Based on academic accomplishments and financial need, Venice McFarquhar, Ilsaya Kerr, Kaleisha Thompson and Johansen Gordon were the four students shortlisted to be awarded full scholarships. Tuition fees coupled with book grants and other much-needed supplies put the value of each scholarship at approximately $450,000. The outstanding quartet made indelible impressions on the judging panel as they shared their passion for the culinary arts, their personal challenges and how they overcame them.

The judging panel, headed by Observer Managing Director Julian Rogers and Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards conceptualiser Novia McDonald-Whyte, was very pleased with the calibre of the shortlisted students. The panel also consisted of UTech Director of Student Financing Garcia Green-McLennon, Scholarship Officer Pauline Madourie and Food and Service Management Programme Director Camille Jackson.

Teflon Tufton – Minister Number One – Martin Henry May 16, 2019

How the public make up their minds about these things we never get to know, but in the most recent RJRGLEANER Communications Group polls, conducted by pollster Don Anderson, Christopher Tufton was adjudged the best-performing Cabinet minister. Tufton, minister of health, had a 24 per cent rating as best-performing minister, more than twice the nearest two others at 11 per cent.

The health sector doesn’t generate jobs and more jobs, it doesn’t run major infrastructural development pride projects, it doesn’t spend a lot of feel-good money, and the majority of citizens do not directly interact with it on a day-to-day basis unless they get sick. So it has to be something else why Dr Tufton is outpacing his Cabinet colleagues in the popularity race.


The health sector has not been exactly short of its own big, bad news. The news story reporting Dr Tufton’s lead started out by saying, “Despite facing strong criticism for his handling of the issues at the Cornwall Regional Hospital and the [2018] dengue outbreak … Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton has topped the list of best-performing Cabinet ministers.”
