Jamaican food is a fusion of African, Spanish, Dutch, French, Chinese, British and Indian cuisines. It's extremely moorish and vibrantly distinct. The cooking techniques, flavours and spices come from the indigenous people of the island.
All of the dishes are a fusion of techniques and traditions from the arrival of the myriad of cultures. This gave Jamaica a diverse and distinct mix of flavours and dishes. Some typical Jamaican dishes are...
Jerk Chicken, Ackee & Salt Fish, Rice N Peas, Curry Goat, Oxtail Stew, Jamaican Patties, Brown Stew, Fried Dumplings, Fried Plantain
One of the most well known Jamaican dishes is jerk chicken. The term jerk chicken comes from the blend of herbs and spices used to marinate the chicken. Once flavour is absorbed, it can be cooked on a low-to-medium heat in the oven, BBQ, grill or pan. Jerk chicken is best served with coconut rice & beans, sweet potato and homemade gravy, which brings it all together.
