April launched London’s first Caribbean Tapas restaurant, Three Little Birds, in Brixton in 2015 after a stint on BBC’s Apprentice as a way to showcase her culture through warm hospitality, small sharing plates and rum based cocktails. The Jamaican-inspired concept was well received allowing her to open a second location in Clapham Junction just three years later; bringing curry goat, jerk roasted cauliflower and honey-jerk wings to another neighbourhood. She continues to celebrate her culture at Wood & Water, serving Modern British cuisine with a Jamaican Soul.

Having grown up in Jamaica and lived in France and New York, her recipes are influenced by her travels resulting in a unique perspective in the kitchen that challenges ideas of Caribbean food. This self-taught chef, known for her good vibes and fiery character, has been featured on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and at Taste of London delivering live demos. More recently she appears on ITV’s This Morning & Cooking with the Stars.

Jackson is a proud Jamaican and represented the country when she was crowned Miss Jamaica Universe in 2008. April is the foodie entrepreneur to watch, determined to make inspired Jamaican food a firm fixture on the UK palate. She lives in London with her partner and twin girls.
