Our Jamaican Cuisine is world renowned for it’s mouthwatering flavours! It is a melting pot of amazing flavours influenced by the many nationalities who, at one time or another inhabited Jamaica, and who, brought with them, their food kind, spices and their own style of cooking. Among these nationalities were the tainos, spanish, british, africans, chinese and east indians. Each has left their indelible mark on Jamaica's culinary landscape making Jamaican Cuisine what is today - bold, spicy & full of flavour!
