Bedford Caribbean cafe named ‘Best World Cuisine’ in Food Awards England

Jemz Caribbean

Bedford cafe and takeaway restaurant, Jemz Caribbean, has been named ‘Best World Cuisine’ for the southern region in this year’s Food Awards England.

The Ampthill Road restaurant is run by husband and wife duo, Sandra and Patrick Harris who opened up shop in 2015.

Sandra is also the Chef, whose cuisine has been popular within the local community for many years.

Speaking about their award, Sandra and Patrick said: “To be nominated for such a prestigious award was a great achievement for us in itself but to actually win is just incredible.

“We are still in shock and are just so happy.

“To also know that we were nominated by the public/our customers is wonderful as we are committed to delivering a first class customer experience so this is testament to that.

“We do have amazing and incredibly loyal customers who we would personally like to thank for their support over the years as without them this award wouldn’t have been achievable.”

The Good Food Awards are hosted by Creative Oceanic to celebrate the best in the food industry.
