Crazy Delicious


Chosen by her food photography then auditioned in a day, Elainea's love of food was taken to a new level where she cooked her inventive recipes for Michelin Star Chefs such as Heston Blumenthal, Niklas Erdnst and Carla Hall for a cookery programme called Crazy Delicious on Channel 4 (January) & Netflix (May 2020).

Under pressure as a home cook and now aspiring chef with a timed pressure test, Elainea tries to focus and remain calm whilst talking to camera and  cooking at the same time fo Michelin star judges

A tower of edible glory and croquembouche Jamaican fried dumpling with many crazy twists along the way:-

  • squid ink dumplings with smoked mackerel and bitter chocolate filling

  • salt fish dumplings with confit of cod inside

  • dumplings with filling of avocado, samphire and pan-fried scallop

  • chilli dumplings with smoked shrimp bouillabaisse with buttered poached lobster

  • dumplings with ackee smash, plantains and smoky bacon

Elainea has been obsessed about photography and food all of her life but never dreamed her food was that good to be judged and liked by Michelin Star Chefs
