Cooking started at an early age when Chef Thomas had tested recipes from his family’s library. Ultimately, his pursuit to bring satisfaction and joy to people through his food has allowed him to be passionate about cooking. It was when he worked for James Beard Award Winning Chef Michael Schwartz at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink in Miami in 2007 that Thomas was taught the utilization of local ingredients in an approachable manner.

During his time in Cayman he coached Cayman’s youth in culinary competitions. Thomas now heads the kitchen at Michael Schwartz’s Fi’lia in the SLS Baha Mar, in Nassau, Bahamas, where he brings the knowledge and experience of Michael, Cayman, and lionfish. Upon returning to Cayman, Thomas has launched his own company, Tomfoodery Kitchen; a concept centered around local ingredients highlighting Caribbean cuisine with global influences.
