April Jackson

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.

“I’m not a chef, I cook and people pay.”

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 up the food she loves, which is simple but full of flavour.

Without any experience in hospitality, April went from managing her lifestyle events company in Jamaica, to owning and operating one of the best Caribbean restaurants in London, catering for weddings and becoming a champion for Jamaican food and drink. She relaunched her Brixton site, post Covid, as Wood & Water. April has been proud of Jamaica long before she was crowned Miss Jamaica Universe in 2008 and continues to celebrate her culture at Wood & Water, serving Modern British cuisine with a Jamaican Soul. 

Before restaurants, Jackson began sharing recipes via her blog The Yummy Truth then appeared on UK TV screens on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, Dirty Secrets of Britain’s Takeaways, BBC’s Masterchef, ITV’s Ainsley’s Fantastic Flavours, and ITV’s Cooking With The Stars. 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 twin girls.
