One Final Bonus – Nicole Dennis-Benn Quote 

“She doesn’t have the heart to question Bernie about what he knows about Jamaican cuisine, much less how he plans to influence it.

She still thinks it’s unfair that Peter is the lesser known of the two. Maybe that’s how it is—maybe life favors certain people and relegates the rest to living in their shadows.”
