If all of this has given you a yearning to head to St Vincent and the Grenadines, we think you're making a great choice. Maybe you're a geology enthusiast looking to get up close to the volcano, or, like Sian and Desmond, keen to visit friends and relatives. Then again, you might just want to explore this magical group of islands or head to the Grenadines to be treated like royalty. Whatever your reasons, there are two things you can be sure of. We're ready and waiting to take you there, and you're going to enjoy some epic food.
So what was the verdict on Mama Jacqs cooking? Sian and Desmond are both very familiar with Caribbean cooking, from their family gatherings and a job that sees them visit the region regularly. With the first mouthful of Mama Jacqs food, their eyes lit up. Here, in north London, was real Caribbean food, transporting them back to the islands as only food can. As they left, both mentioned that the food at Mama Jacqs really reminded them of their grans cooking. To Mama Jacq, that was the greatest compliment of all.
Connecting friends and family is one of the things we do best here at Virgin Atlantic. As we leave Mama Jacq's after a beautiful evening making friends, learning about St Vincent, and eating exceptional Caribbean cuisine, we are moved by Mama Jacq and her family. Their story and their restaurant energised and inspired everyone. We all left even more excited about our newest destination. Sian headed off determined to finally make it to her mum's homeland and catch up with aunts and uncles she's never met. Meanwhile Desmond, was heading off the next day to the Caribbean and St Vincent, crewing our very first flight to his home island.
