This is a little gem of a Caribbean cookery book; with recipes that go way back to my great grandmother's time.
I've tried some of the recipes, with great success which impressed mother who's a pensioner now and of Jamaican descent.
The only things I'd change about this book would be to use colour pictures of the dishes (instead of black & white line drawings) and some of the recipes need a modern update for the measurements of the ingredients, as found in cookery books of today.
I understand that the original recipes and the very first book were published way back in 1893, which is understandable when you consider the facilities available at the time.
So a modern face lift of this book wouldn't hurt, and I think it's great that someone is keeping alive such recipes which are a great reflection of Jamaican culture. I think such modifications would be of great help for future readers and budding chefs a like, if a new edition of this book where ever published.
P.S: My younger sister and cousins keep borrowing this book. They need to get their own copies.
