This won't make you a Jamaican cook, but it does have a few basic versions of the foods most of us look forward to eating while visiting Jamaica (jerk chicken, rice and peas, meat patty, etc) and also a few more elegant meals, as prepared by gourmet resorts. Not really a good book unless you already have basic cookimg experience.
