This new edition of Enid Donaldson’s popular cookbook, completely re-designed with additional photographs and a brand new cover, takes food lovers and cooks into Jamaican kitchens and restaurants to sample the full range of native cuisine prepared by local housewives, restaurateurs and roadside “jerkies”.
Enid Donaldson presents her dishes with flair and imagination, delicately spiced and flavoured with curry, scotch bonnet peppers, jerk sauce, pimento, nutmeg, rum and a dash of Jamaican humour. Traditional recipes are included for those who would like to recapture childhood memories. A new section, “Ole Time Something,” contributed by noted journalist and talk-show host Barbara Gloudon, captures the memories and magic of Jamaican kitchens and homes of yesteryear.
In this new edition, Ms. Donaldson captures the flavour of Jamaica with a sumptuous collection of over 200 traditional and popular recipes. The Real Taste of Jamaica is one of the best offerings of Jamaican cuisine both in its comprehensive nature and its authentic cultural quality. This is more than just a cookbook; it is celebration of Jamaican culture and a home entertainer’s delight.
