I did a quick search on Google minutes ago for 'Jamaican cookbook'.

And just as you would guess, it returned h̶u̶n̶d̶r̶e̶d̶s̶, I mean thousands of results. But you and I know the truth behind that right?

Exactly :-) The first few looked useful but it would appear that the rest, the remaining thousands, are just mere mentions of the phrase.

I went across to Amazon.com and searched again.

And yes, I did search under the category 'books'. This time I get a much narrower list, but still well over 50 books - 78 in fact!

Before that, I went to Sangster's, a popular local bookstore here in Montego Bay, and scoured the shelves. I found quite a few there as well. Many of which does not appear to be available online.

It simply means that there is no shortage of Jamaica cookbooks available - hard copies or e-books!

But, a BIG BUT, there are cookbooks and there are cookbooks, you know what I mean right?

Not all of them is of the same quality or deliver what they claim to give you.

However, I'll volunteer. I'll save you the trouble, and recommend the top ones to you!

My authority comes simply from family members who owns/owned one, bought one for a friend, and/or from the feedback I've received - local and online.

Ready? Here we go...

Best Jamaican Cookbooks Available


  1. The Real Taste of Jamaica
    by Enid Donaldson. A great book! Rightfully in the #1 spot. And I'll hasten to say, is my favourite.


  2. Delicious Jamaica: Vegetarian Cuisine (Healthy World Cuisine)
    by Yvonne McCalla Sobers. Highly Recommended.


  3. Jerk from Jamaica: Barbecue Caribbean Style
    by Helen Willinsky. 


  4. Authentic Recipes from Jamaica (Authentic Recipes Series)
    by John DeMers. 


Thankfully, all are available online for your convenience as well.

There are also many Ja'can cookbooks available for download but I haven't really found a good one to recommend at this time. 

And by the way, they make a great gift! Especially to someone who loves the kitchen.

It's now your turn to try them; grab a good cookbook and take the real taste of Jamaican to your own table!
