I was raised in a small town in Jamaica called Glengoffe, which is in the parish of St. Catherine. I was raised in a Christian household; My mother was the pastor and my father was the deacon of their church. Our church was a hub for gatherings so naturally where there are people there is food. In Jamaica food is our culture, it's our livelihood, and it's our passion. If you attend an event in Jamaica, there will be cooking, and the kitchen will be boisterous; but upon taking a look inside you will see smiles and laughter. My passion for food developed at an early age due to my father always having my siblings and I helping out in the kitchen. My father cooked at church events, weddings, and funerals, if the community needed someone, he was there. In 2020 I lost my father, and as a means of coping I spend a lot of my time preparing meals that he loved cooking. Over time I generated an artistic love for my Jamaican Cuisine and started sharing that love with my friends and co-workers. My father “Oswald Worges” is my inspiration for creating Island Fyah Food Truck and I dedicate our success to him.
