THE REAL TASTE OF JAMAICA By ENID DONALDSON
If you are a person who enjoys cooking then a local cookbook is a “must have” in your personal library. Your cookbook, a curious palate and an open appetite will soon transform “breadfruit”, “ackee”, “callaloo”, “green banana”, “plantains” and “avocado pear” into familiar household terms.
Written by practicing Jamaican cook of over 30 years, Enid Donaldson, The Real Taste of Jamaica provides recipes that are simple, time saving, and allow for substitution of ingredients. The book is divided into 9 sections:
Chicken and Meat Dishes
Sauces and Dressings
Traditional Jamaican Baked Goods
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; with flair and distinctive 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.
