All About Jerk

1. All About Jerk

Jerk cooking is an authentic Jamaican way to cook meat. Whether it is pork, chicken, beef or fish, the meat is seasoned and slowly cooked over an open fire or on a barbecue grill. The seasoning is made up of local/regional spices like scallions, onion, thyme, pimento (all spice), cinnamon, nutmeg, peppers and salt. The first taste of jerked food is hot with pepper, and as you eat the flavors of all the other spices mingle in your mouth giving an explosion of stunning flavor. It is for this reason why all the other islands have adopted Jerk. Jerk is now viewed as a regional food, and everyone has their own special recipe to make jerk seasoning. In Nicole’s class, Nicole will introduce you to all the jerk spices, provide a history about jerk, and discuss the various ways jerk seasoning can be used to give your food its own West Indian style when you return home.   A typical menu includes: Cocktails: A local juice, water from our cisterns, and Nicole's Old Fashioned Rum Punch Starter: A local juice, water from our cisterns, and Nicole's Old Fashioned Rum Punch Main Course: Jerk Chicken (or Tofu!) with Grilled Pineapple Sides: Plantains Wrapped in Bacon, Red Beans and Rice, and a Garden Salad Dessert: Coconut Custard Tart The goal of this class, will be to make it easy for you cook the same menu after you return home. All of this is offered from the home high on a hill overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The experience will give you a beautiful view and an opportunity to experience life the Caribbean way.
