I just recieved this book but have not had the time to look through it. Anyone have it and can make recommendations? Or give general hints?

Thanks!

I actually own this book, i got it last month. I have a hard time figuring out what to cook from it becsause even tho im jamaican their r certain things that i've just never heard of in the book and a lot of the recipes dont have descriptions of the recipe. I really love porridge and her porridge recipe seems very standard so that might b good to try for breakfast. I wish i could b of more help, this post makes me realize how many cookbooks i own that i've yet to cook out of. BTW if your looking to try more caribbean food there's a book by Taymer Mason called caribbean vegan and everything i've made out of it has been great, she also has a blog with recipes.

Thanks for that. Actually I'm aware of Taymer's blog and book as she is also a PPKer. I've bookmarked some recipes from her blog I think. And the book is also on my wishlist, like a ton of others. Sigh.

And yes, I also need to use the books I already own more.

I've had this book for a few years and it has a lot of good recipes. I don't cook from it as often as I should. My copy is in storage due to moving so these favs are from my foggy foodie memory:


Ben Johnson Vegetable Stew - this is the Jamaican version of everything but the kitchen sink stew - a stew you make the day before market day when you have little bits of everything but not much of any one thing

Jerk Tofu (the moist jerk seasoning with barley malt) - the flavours are exceptional

Jamaican Yam Run Down Casserole - a great side dish with lots of options to improvise

Jerk Potatoes - fast and fablous

Turned Cornmeal - good cornmeal/veg dish but I always leave out the okra (not a fan)

Number Eleven Mango Chutney - while this recipe will work with any mangos - the number eleven mangos have a distinct and not-so-sweet flavour for the chutney

Mango Cobbler - wonderful alone or with coconut icecream (eg Vcon's variations) - pick a mango variation that is smooth not stringy (eg. Julie or Bombay).

Great, thanks a lot for that! I just took a closer look at the book and found many recipes that looked inviting. Although it is probably not very well suited for unexperienced cooks as the cooking instructions are fairly short and basic (which is fine for me, I just wanted to let anyone who is new to cooking ad may be interested in the book)
