Jamaica Cuisine and Food

Manish Water
This soup is an old time favourite in Jamaica. You'll find it served at "real Jamaican parties", wakes, celebrations, reggae concerts and at road side stalls. Made from the head, feet of a goat, bananas, yam, pepper, and your optional white rum.

Cows Cod
This soup is Jamaican delicacy, therefore it is very rare to find good Cow Cod soup. It is believed that Cow Cod soup is drank by men to give them strength and stamina needed to play vigorous sports. The ingredients for this soup is 'The Cows Cod'(which is a big Jamaican secret), bananas, yam, pepper and your optional white rum.

Curry Goat
This dish has put Jamaica on the world map because it is known that Jamaican's are experts at cooking curry goat and it would be totally unacceptable if it was not cooked in a Jamaican household once a week. You can find it at almost any hotel or restaurant in Jamaica but to get the real curry you need to visit the household of a Jamaican native. Cooking curry is like planting a garden or putting a chip in your computer. It has to be nourished and handled carefully. You want to feel the personal touch when you eat curry goat. Made from goat meat, curry, pepper and various "secret" home seasonings.

Jerk Chicken
Jamaicans loves this sweet and spicy rub on both chicken and meat. The strong flavors in this recipe will be best with a refreshing wine that combines low alcohol and good acidity. Try a slightly chilled Beaujolais from France.
