TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City – Jamaica

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Jamaican restaurant »RosaCaleta«

Jamaican, that is: Every occasion is celebrated, whether big or small. And celebrating means eating and drinking. Kirk Henry and Troy Lopez bring this principle from their home country Jamaica to Berlin and realize it in their restaurant RosaCaleta. “As a child I grew up in a house where the doors were always open, no matter what the occasion was, it was always a kind of party.

That's why there is always something to eat when I invite people. Because good food always creates good mood, and good mood always make a good talk”, says chef Troy Lopez during our shooting for the series 50 kitchens, one city for DW last summer. Troy and managing director Kirk live this principle, that one notices quickly when you see them in their restaurant and spend somme time with them.
