‘Ants Follow Fat’… The popular Jamaican proverb seems to have taken root in the ingenious idea of the development of a ‘Taste Trail’ in Manchester. The parish has long been a stalwart in local culinary dishes and boasts several food hotspots that have garnered a reputation for hitting the right places in the stomach walls of people near and far. The iniative is just one of many that will be implemented by the Manchester Parish Council as part of a marketing strategy facilitated by the Caribbean Local Economic Development Project (CARILED).
