He later developed a great appreciation for international cuisines, including Chinese food, in which he cultivated expertise at Master Chef Restaurant, and Italian food, in which he trained at Town House Restaurant in Montego Bay.

Mr. Slade has experienced great success and acclaim in the culinary world due in no small part to working with Chef Spence, who has prepared food at such establishments as the Colorado Springs Ski Resort at Steamboat Sheraton, Mackinac Island in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the Homestead Resort in Hot Spring Virginia, and Heritage Collection on Hilton Head Island.
