    A Jamaican classic. The meat is slowly braised in its own juices to create the most tender pork. The potato and peppers add dimension to the dish. Serve with rice or bread.

    This recipe is based on a traditional Caribbean favourite. It's made with black-eyed beans or red kidney beans, which are called peas in Jamaica – hence the name of the dish. Red pepper has been added for extra vegetable content and a small amount of lean, smoked bacon lifts the flavour.

    My grandmother came up with this recipe to use up some larger than life marrow that came from her garden. You can use courgette if you haven't any marrow. Also a nice way to use up those leftover bananas!

    This fabulous storecupboard dish tastes fantastic and is so simple to make. The addition of coconut milk gives it a real taste of the Caribbean.

    In this unusual upside-down cake, juicy slices of mango are topped with a simple, light sponge mixture flavoured with lime zest and coconut. After baking, the cake is turned out so that the fruit is on top, then finished by dredging with icing sugar and caramelising under a hot grill.

    This is the recipe for Jamaican Hard Do Bread (hard dough bread). You'll love this simple white bread that is just slightly sweet. Enjoy this like you would any other white loaf.
