Our History

Growing up in Jamaica, Jeffrey always knew he would be a chef. Coming from a rural background, there were no chefs about to follow in the footsteps of, but that didn’t stop him! Passion, hard work and an ability to pick things up & do them quick set him on the path to some pretty amazing things.

From a very young age he would prepare food for the family’s return from church on Sundays, learning all the secrets from his mother and grandmother. Everyone loved what he made, but could never quite replicate his recipe… all of a sudden Jeffrey was cooking up a storm for everyone.

After training as a chef on his home island, Jeffrey came to England at 23 as a pastry chef. He’s worked in some very fancy places and developed his craft over the years, meeting and falling in love with Charlotte along the way. They live in Charlotte’s home town of Windermere with their three young children, surrounded by the love of family and friends. Their home is full of love, laughter, and of course some amazing Jamaican food.

After several years in the planning, Yardies Jamaican Street Food came to life in 2018. The team can often be seen at festivals and events all over the UK – once you’ve experienced a Yardies you’ll know why!
