Oh boy. Oh boy, oh boy, mmmmm tasty, tasty food! I would make one slight point though. Some of the recipes are not quite that easy to do. Only because the author presumes too much of you. I personally would prefer a more step by step guide. There appears to be steps missing in some of the recipes. But they're not that bad that you can't work them out. And the results are fantastic.
Now I'm not a huge fan of over spicy food. But I made "Jerk Chicken" and overnight I became a convert. For that one recipe the book is well worth the money. Yeah it's hot, hot, hot. But my mouth tingled, it didn't burn. It actually tingled with joy.
Plus you get a bit of cultural history as well. And a background to the recipes and their names as well.
Mince & Tatties are the staple dish of Scotland. Don't get me wrong I love good old stodgy Scottish food. But Jamaican food is so tasty, & colourful. And if you are Scottish just look at the Cake section. It's got Scotland written all over it!
Seriously you don't have to be Black to enjoy this book. Even the Auld Troll wants to borrow the book of me. So she can make some of the soups. Jamaican food is the best! It's the bees pyjamas!
Any Jamaicans out there want to adopt a skinny wee Scottish Boy?
My copy of 'The Real Taste of Jamaica' has only just arrived today, and I'm already very pleased with it. There are so many dishes I hadnt even heard of.
Not only has it been fun looking for and remembering things we used to have, the book is a good size, with easy to follow recipes, and large colour photographs. Its very informative, and theres also an A to Z of Jamaican foods for those not in the know.
'Cups' are used for the ingredient measurements in each recipe, but there is a handy conversion chart at the back of the book (as well as others for oven temps etc.)
Finally I have access to a full list of ingredients so I can cook my food, and make it taste just like it used to!
I have my own copy. Got this as a gift for a family member as a gift and they love it to!!!
A very hard book to get my hands on in the UK. So thankful I found it on AMAZON and at a great price too. Would have to spend a few £££ to get it shipped from the USA. Received before estimated date of delivery.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
