The consistently mouth-watering and entertaining “Taste the Islands” food show, a popular, Jamaican-produced TV program, is coming to public television stations in the U.S. in a big way, starting in April.

Hosted by culinary consultant Hugh (Chef Irie), Caribbean cuisine, culture and celebrities will be featured in the seven-part series on more than 130 PBS stations around the country. The Jamaica Tourist Board is providing major funding for the program.

Chef Irie is joined regularly by his on-air foodie companion Nicole Hylton and periodically by international superstars such as British reggae performer Maxi Priest, NBC sports analyst and former Trinidad Olympian Ato Boldon, veteran Jamaican reggae band Inner Circle, “Turn Me On” singer Kevin Lyttle from St. Vincent and the Grenadines and other special guests.

“Cooking is one of the most popular genres on public TV and we expect audiences will respond enthusiastically to the new series,” said Christopher Funkhouser, vice president of Exchange Programming and Multicast Services at American Public Television, which is distributing the program.

The series is being presented by South Florida’s WPBT2 and produced by Calibe Thompson’s Blondie Ras Productions.
