Acclaimed food writer and chef Melissa Thompson takes us on a journey to this Caribbean jewel through 80 recipes and more than 500 years of history and influences. This beautiful cookbook features in-depth research into the evolution of Jamaica's food. It charts the contribution of indigenous Jamaicans, the Taino. It follows the impact of colonisation on the nation's gastronomy, without shying away from its brutality. And it recounts how enslaved people from West and Central Africa brought inspiration from home, and the contribution of Indian and Chinese indentured workers is also examined.
