Veda Nugent arrived in Canada from Jamaica in 1972, with two small children, two suitcases, and six hundred dollars, to begin a new life. From 1982 to 1989, she operated two successful Caribbean restaurants in Ottawa, Ontario. As a restaurateur and chef, she gained much recognition while introducing the tastes of the islands to the Ottawa Valley. During that time Veda also catered for notable agencies, and for functions at foreign embassies and at Parliament Hill. Along the way she appeared on a number of local TV cooking shows and taught countless classes on Jamaican and African cuisine. Veda currently resides in Florida.
Marrett Green, Veda’s son, moved with his family to Canada at age six. After seven years helping Veda operate her restaurants, he moved on to study broadcast journalism. From 1992 to 1999, Marrett worked as an award-winning television newscaster at several Canadian stations, culminating as the weekend news anchor at Global Television in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 1999 Marrett became the Media Relations Officer for the regional government in Greater Vancouver. As a communications professional, Marrett writes articles and has been published most recently in the Journal of Commerce and West Coast Families Magazine. Marrett is currently working on a children’s book for his ever-curious two-year-old sons, who live with him in Vancouver.
