Meet Kerry Ann Gray.
Kerry was born and raised in Jamaica, and now residing in Saint Louis, Missouri. She’s a proud Jamaican who loves to turn up the heat in the kitchen.
Kerry was introduced to this Vegan lifestyle by Francesca Dawson. At first, she had no clue what veganism was all about. Kerry started off with the no meat challenge, then Francesca introduced her to the vegan lifestyle. “I was like yeah, why not give it a try.” Kerry still was consuming eggs and dairy thinking that it was ok since it wasn’t meat. Later, Kerry fully understood the concept of veganism, and ditched the dairy, eggs and fully transitioned into a vegan lifestyle.
Kerry now cook all kind of yumminess adding her Jamaican flavor and twist to every one of her dishes. “Can I tell you how much I love CURRY? I would seriously curry the air we breathe if I could. Not to mention Plantains and Avocados. They are a must in my dishes.”
Kerry own the copyright to the name Garden Belly and working on a Jamaican Vegan Cook Book to be released in the near future.
She take great pride in all of her dishes, and is always happy to post and share with the world.
