The pair have had a combined 40 million views of their Caribbean recipes videos online.

Their Nan moved to London in 1956 aged 21 years old and still has a lot of family in Redlands, Jamaica. She is a regular cameo in their online videos and they attribute all their cooking skills to learning from her. Their Nan also features heavily in the forthcoming book.
