Hugh Sinclair, a.k.a. Chef Irie Spice, the Global Culinary Architect, is the executive chef of Chef Irie Spice Inc.-Personal Chef Catering Services providing services to the tri-county area of South East Florida. Chef Irie hails from the Caribbean Island of Jamaica, where he grew up on a sugar plantation. Before relocating to the Sunshine state, Hugh migrated with his family to New York, then relocated to Florida where he completed his college career at the Univ. of Florida earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture.

Chef Irie has always had a passion for cooking and felt right at home in the kitchen. After working several years as an architect, the yearning to create culinary masterpieces vs. architectural aesthetics overtook his desires. It was then that Hugh enrolled in Johnson & Wales University’s Culinary Arts program embarking on his culinary journey. Graduating with an Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts, Hugh has taken on the South Florida culinary landscape by storm. Being a personal chef has allowed him to work with entertainers, athletes and many South Florida elite.

Venturing into the tv arena, Chef Irie made his tv debut, by appearing on Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen and serves as chef host of PBS/Create TV Taste the Islands. He is also host of Grace Jamaica Jerk Festival’s culinary pavilion. This festival is held annually in Florida, New York and Washington, DC.
