Here is a wide variety of Jamaican food, mainly traditional but given an up-to-date slant. There are many old favourites and quite a few new ideas to get the gastric juices flowing. The recipes are accompanied by glorious photographs and there is a good section on where to buy authentic Jamaican crafts. Yes, there are omissions in the list of recipes, but in a book of this size there is much to read and, more importantly, to cook.
Its outward appearance is of a "coffee table" book but do not fear, this book is destined to become stained and marked and annotated as all good cookbooks should as it will spend much of its life on the kitchen preparation surface!
