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 favorite Jamaican dish!

  5. The Delectable Jamaican Jerk Chicken!

    It's savory, 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!
