SUZANNE & MICHELLE
Suzanne and Michelle are Jamaican sisters and business partners who have spent the past 25 years of their careers refining their concept of Modern Heritage Dining. Through their restaurants, catering, television shows, historical and cultural research, traveling and writing, they have codified a signature style and taste that is distinct and in demand.
Accomplished authors, their first cookbook Caribbean Potluck: Modern Recipes from our Family Kitchen brought them international acclaim. Their second cookbook Provisions: The Roots of Caribbean Cooking solidified their reputation as vanguards in the discourse on Caribbean culture, food and heritage. Provisions has received thunderous reception, including being listed among the best cookbooks of 2018 by The San Francisco Chronicle, The New Yorker, Epicurious and Serious Eats.
Bringing to life many of the recipes in both their cookbooks around the seasonal festivities of Caribbean culture, Summerhouse is how they intend to share the magic of Modern Heritage Dining with us.
"One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”

Harmony Hall dates back to the late nineteenth century. Its design is indicative of Jamaican-Georgian architectural style with intricate fretwork of gingerbread trimmings and a balustrade—characteristic features of plantation houses in the nineteenth century. The original property was a small pimento estate in the latter part of the nineteenth century. The property at one point was the manse for the Methodist Church and subsequently became a private home for nearly fifty years. It was sold in 1986 to Annabella and Peter Proudlock, remodelled and became the Harmony Hall Art Gallery.
Harmony Hall was declared a national monument by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust in 2003.
