Jamaica is the mountainous Caribbean island famed for its coffee and its beaches. But with its abundance of homegrown ingredients and its many cultural influences it has developed a remarkable cuisine all its own. To visit the Jamaican kitchen is to discover the sumptuous flavors of spicy jerk pork, sweet tropical juices, complex curries and lush desserts.

This cookbook offers the island's best recipes—both the traditional and the new—from Jamaica's hottest chefs and restaurants, including Norma Shirley of Norma at the Wharfhouse, Everett Wilkerson of the Sans Souci Lido and James Palmer at Strawberry Hill.

Authentic Recipes from Jamaica presents over 60 full-color recipes with photographs shot on location. Lively essays by food writers John DeMers and Norma Benghiat on the island's culture and history, explanations of special ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes make this the most complete guide to Jamaican food you'll find.

Recipes include:

  • Pepperpot
  • Baked Plantains
  • Pepper Shrimp
  • Ginger Tamarind Chicken
  • Spinach Salad with Breadfruit Chips
  • Sweet Potato Pone
  • Jamaican Limeade
