Shakera Jones is the voice behind the lifestyle brand, blog, and social media space BlackGirlsDineToo, which serves as a guide to the wonderful world of high-end food and wine. Her welcoming teaching style and warm personality allow people to learn about wine and cuisine no matter their knowledge or experience. Shakera is initially from Belize, where the country is a melting pot of just about everything. Her childhood was centered around food. Her father was an adventurous eater and would always take Shakera and her family to different ethnic restaurants to "try something new." To this day, Shakera has never lost that culinary curiosity. Currently, she is a tech professional by day and a wine student by night. She is currently studying to obtain certification through the Court of Master Sommeliers and the Wine Scholar Guild. Shakera is also a media personality on the SOMM TV streaming network and is part of the cast of the soon-to-be-released film SOMM 4. She is a wine writer with articles featured in Food & Wine and SevenFifty Daily and was recently recognized by Wine & Spirits magazine. She recently launched her new podcast, A Glass for Every Palate. Shakera aims to promote and support diversity and inclusion efforts for women and other underrepresented groups in the culinary and fine wine industries.
