    This recipe is a MUST for rum lovers! If you don't like rum, then substitute another spirit, like brandy.

    Plantains can only be eaten cooked. Fried plantains are a traditional treat in Latin America and many other parts of the world. Overly ripe plantains work best for this recipe. If you want a savoury experience, serve these with salt. If you want something sweet, serve with sugar and cinnamon.

    As a Bajan who lives in Scotland now I really do need to keep my Caribbean cooking up to date, keep home not too far at heart. This is one of my favourite dishes from back home. Serve with rice! You can also sprinkle a little parsley over your dish if you wish. Enjoy!!

    A wonderfully flavourful versatile spicy curry with Indian and Jamaican influences. Goat or mutton is marinated overnight for depth of flavour, then slowly cooked for at least 5 hours to create truly irresistible, melt-in-the-mouth meat and a dish to warm the soul.

    This jerk chicken is one of my nephew's favourite barbecue recipes. This well rounded flavour of sweet, hot, herbal and spicy chicken can be served with rice, beans or pasta. Or just make a chicken sandwich out of it! I also add garlic and a kiwi fruit to the marinade.
