Free Jamaican Recipes || by Wellesley Gayle

Thanks to my sisters, wife, friends and co-authors, I've managed to put together a list of some of the most adored Jamaican food (below) for you!

Feel free to use them, and share them.

I've conveniently categorized them for you in...


Main Course

  1. The Delicious Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken
    I am by no means a great cook-not even an average cook, but believe me, this is one of the easiest dishes to prepare, and it is still darn tasty - excuse my language. It is, try it!

  2. The Delicious Jamaican Oxtail Stew!
    Well, I have never prepared it, but my sister Neka, who is the best cook in the family, is the queen at this- and I dear say, for many of our local dishes as well. She is the BEST! When she cooks it not even the bones are spared.

  3. Jamaican Curried Goat
    Curried Goat, by the way, is one another of our popular Jamaican preparation and is a favourite with white rice, rice and peas or roasted breadfruit - breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  4. The Mouth-Watering Jamaican Curried Chicken
    Perhaps you've had jerk, but have you had the true Jamaican curried chicken? It's to die for! Needles to say that Curried Chicken (or chicken back) and dumplings is my favourite Jamaican dish!

  5. The Delectable Jamaican Jerk Chicken!
    It's savoury, it's unique. Thanks to the Arawaks- the original inhabitants of the island, Jamaican jerk is now a favourite the world over!

  6. Tasty Jamaican Rice and Peas, aka Jamaican Red Beans & Rice
    Not just rice + peas! Its rice&peas :-)

  7. Jamaican Pumpkin Soup
    A traditional sat'day favourite, especially with 'chicken foot'!

    And we have some new additions!

  8. Jamaican Jerk Seasoning - From Scratch!
  9. Jamaican Jerk Pork
  10. Jamaican Steamed Fish -with Okras
  11. & More Fish Recipes
  12. Jamaican Jerk Sauce

  2. Jamaican Beef Patties

    Bammy is one of our traditional food preparations that is still highly adored by all. Correction, OK perhaps not all, but I am yet to find another Jamaican who does not savor this old-time favourite.
  4. Delectable Jamaican Coconut Drops! 
    Simple and Easy! 
  5. The Jamaican Fruit Cake (Christmas Cake) Recipe!

  13. Jamaican Banana Fritters
    OMG - taste it to believe it!
  14. Jamaican Hardough Bread
    To hear a J’can say something very special to them is their “bread and butter”, is no idle talk :-)
  15. Jamaican Pepper Pot Soup
    You can only imagine the excitement I created when I first tasted the Jamaican pepper pot soup!" Nemonie
  16. Jamaican Bread Pudding
    ‘Pone’ born out of a necessity to make use of every bit of food you have in the house', just amazingly lovely!
  17. Jamaican Easter Bun
    Warning! Taste it and you'll want to have it forever!


  1. The Refreshing Jamaican Sorrel!
    Christmas is not the same without a tall glass of it. 
  2. Jamaican Apple Drink
    Great taste, but you'll also get amazing nutritional value.
  3. Jamaican Carrot Juice
    With Supligen & Guiness stout!
  4. Jamaican Rum Punch
    Jamaican Rum Punch is one of the island’s most popular cocktail drinks.

    It shouldn't be all suprsing though, considering that we Jamaicans are lovers of rum, and incidentally, are producers of some of the finest rums in the world.
