Additional Details

Description: Jamaica is the mountainous Caribbean island famed for its coffee and its beaches. But with its abundance of homegrown ingredients and its many cultural influences it has developed a remarkable cuisine all its own. To visit the Jamaican kitchen is to discover the sumptuous flavors of spicy jerk pork, sweet tropical juices, complex curries and lush desserts. 

This collection offers the island's best recipes -- both the traditional and the new -- from Jamaica's hottest chefs and restaurants, including Norma Shirley of Norma at the Wharfhouse, Everett Wilkerson of the Sans Souci Lido and James Palmer at Strawberry Hill -- to name only a few. Over 60 full-color photographs, all shot on location, illustrate this beautiful volume. Lively essays by food writers John DeMers and Norma Benghiat on the island's culture and history, explanations of special ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes make this the most complete guide to Jamaican food. 

World Food Cookbooks allow people to bring the cuisines of the world into their own homes. These beautiful books offer complete information on ingredients, utensils, and, cooking techniques. Each volume presents the best authentic recipes and detailed explorations of the cultural context in which dishes are created.
