Chef Cheryl Smith is no ordinary cooking diva.
She's a self-taught cooking diva.
With no formal training, only an unshakable passion for cooking and a determination to make the culinary arts her career, Cheryl has emerged on the cooking scene as an important new talent, recognized for her innovative -- even unorthodox -- cooking style.
Cheryl's passion for cooking began innocently enough. She simply missed her mother's Jamaican home cooking and tried to cook for herself. Cheryl describes her attempts as "laughable." The very food she had grown up on and knew most intimately turned out to be difficult to duplicate. So began Cheryl's journey: To discover and understand the unique balance of spices and flavors--not only of foods of her native Jamaica--but of foods from other native cultures and regions.
With each new experiment and each new discovery, Cheryl became more and more convinced that cooking was going to be her life's work. But breaking into the business was another matter.
Cheryl's professional career began not as a cook, but as a dishwasher. Without a culinary diploma, Cheryl had to start at the bottom and work her way up. But it was well worth it. Everything she needed to know about running an efficient, organized kitchen was learned in those early years.
In short order, Cheryl became co-owner and executive chef of OK Kitchen Catering. In 1994, Cheryl joined the staff of Marion's Continental Restaurant, which specialized in American, French, Italian and Asian fusion foods. Eventually, Cheryl was made executive chef and was responsible for the design of the restaurant's dining room and catering menus.
In 1999, Cheryl moved on to another challenge as the executive chef of Sol Restaurant, which specializes in Asian/Caribbean cuisine. Cheryl has also worked with Match Restaurant, Tocqueville and Lola in New York City. She is looking forward to opening her own restaurant some day.
Cheryl's television career began in 1999, when she appeared on Chef Du Jour. She has since made numerous appearance on several shows, including Ready, Set, Cook!, In Food Today and Gordon Elliott's Door Knock Dinners. Cheryl brings her unique expertise of pan-African cuisine to Melting Pot, a show that explores regional cuisines.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
