Troy-Ann has been tantalising tastebuds in Dollar since 2016, with school children at the local Academy among her loyal band of customers.
Born and raised in Jamaica, the talented cook moved to France as a teenager where she learnt the French art of patisserie.
What started as a business creating spectacular cakes, has since evolved to include some of Troy-Ann’s favourite Jamaican inspired dishes such as jerk chicken, barbecue wings and chicken with waffles.
Troy-Ann said: “When the shop came up in Dollar I jumped at the opportunity to do something that I really enjoyed.
“I wanted to create a place that was very me, Carribean, eclectic and quirky.
“It’s an informal space where the youngsters can chat away while I cook.
“Just like my mother’s kitchen at home.
“To me it’s more than a business, it’s a passion driven by my love of food and people.”
Troy-Ann developed her culinary talents as a teenager living in the South of France, having moved there from Jamaica at the tender age of 16.
She said: “After finishing high school I went to live with an older lady in Montpellier, who treated me as a granddaughter.
“She introduced me to French cooking and taught me how to bake all manner of exquisite cakes.
“As a result, my dishes are a blend of French and Carribean cusine.
“Pop by at the weekend and you’ll probably find me covered in sugar, chocolate and flour!
“I make all the food and I’m always striving for perfection.”
