Sandals Resorts Celebrates The Olympics in Rio

As Jamaica still celebrates Usain Bolt’s recent Olympic victory, Sandals Resorts’ executive chef was on hand to contribute to the celebration in Brazil.  Chef Glenroy Walker, senior group executive chef at Sandals Resorts International brought his culinary expertise and intricate knowledge of Jamaican cuisine to the gastronomic offerings at Jamaica House Rio 2016.

The Jamaica House Rio 2016 initiative is designed to create an interactive experience for visitors, bringing Jamaican culture and flavor to Rio de Janeiro during the Olympic Games.  With support from Sandals Resorts International and inspired by the massive success of Jamaica House London in 2012, Jamaica House Rio 2016 presents an opportunity to showcase all aspects of Jamaican culture to the thousands of global visitors who flock to Rio for the Olympic Games.

Jamaican food is a highlight of Jamaica House and Chef Walker, along with the team at the Prado Restaurant, located in the Southern Zone of Rio, have been preparing authentic Jamaican meals for about 1,000 people per day.

Walker, who boasts an impressive 25 years in the culinary industry, with experience in Canada, the United States and of course Jamaica and the Caribbean, was invited to join the team by the Jamaica Tourist Board. Extremely passionate with a natural love for cooking, Walker worked as executive sous chef at Sandals Royal Caribbean before being transferred to a Beaches Resort as executive chef. He later returned to Sandals Royal Caribbean as executive chef before leaving to open and oversee the food and beverage operations at Sandals LaSource Grenada. Chef Walker now works in the company’s corporate office alongside the corporate executive chef creating new and exciting culinary concepts for Sandals and Beaches Resorts.
