Jamaica observer

The saying “the best view comes after the hardest climb” was validated on Sunday as the Jamaica Food + Drink Festival Brunch In The Hills team reintroduced their sponsors, key clients, and festival devotees to yet another of the country’s hidden gems: White Mist at Peter’s Rock.

The winding trek from Norbrook to Peter’s Rock — a peak in Woodford, St Andrew — was, for want of a better word, rocky, but the breathtaking vistas on arrival were worth every bump in the road.

The magnificent array of culinary delights aptly labelled brunch bites courtesy of Trevanne Donegal for Visa and well-appointed Select Brands bars were welcome sights, as too, the misty cityscape in the background. Guests settled readily in the spectacular setting which was further enhanced by Shikima Hinds and team for Events Concierge.

Brunch wrapped with two patrons walking away with paintings by Jamaican artist Alphanso Blake courtesy of NCB Capital Markets.
