Bun & Cheese are particularly popular in Jamaica during Easter! This is not to say that we do not observe the religious traditions associated with Easter like going to Church on Good Friday & Easter Sunday & no meat on Good Friday but there is just something about bun & cheese and Jamaicans at Easter. If you're looking for a different kind of bun this Easter be sure to check out this recipe below!
We checked in with Executive Chef Simone Walker Barrett when we heard she was doing bun with a twist for the season and are we glad we did! Her Cassava Stout Bun was absolutely divine! In fact it was soooo good we asked her to share her recipe here.
