Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...recipes for the most popular roadside food...readable recipe head notes." (Library Journal, February 15, 2006)

Culled from Quinn's Jamaican Cooking, published in 1997, this slim collection of Jamaican recipes reflects Quinn's love affair with Jamaican food and culture. The introduction moves from the origins of Jamaican cooking styles—which span diverse ethnic traditions—to a tour of roadside stops where specialties include Fish Tea, a savory hot broth, and pork, chicken or sausage with jerk sauce. Recipes such as Chicken Fricasee, Codfish Fritters, Stewed Fish, and Pepper Shrimp or Curry Shrimp can be made with readily available ingredients, but in cases where more unusual ingredients are needed—bammy, bread made from grated cassava; or callaloo, a hearty, firm leafy green—Quinn describes the ingredient and offers suggestions for substitutions. Scotch bonnets, small but very spicy-hot peppers, are called for in many recipes, reinforcing the notion that Jamaican food is hot and making readers thankful for the inclusion of enticing recipes for refreshing beverages such as Pineappleade and Ginger Beer. Although the book may not succeed in convincing home cooks brand new to Jamaican cuisine to try it—the head notes are flat, and the book lacks energy—those already converted will enjoy these recipes. (Apr.) (Publishers Weekly, January 2, 2006)

Library Journal
Quinn (Jamaican Cooking) is food editor of Martha Stewart's Living, Weddings, and Kids magazines and one of the hosts of the PBS series Everyday Food. She describes her new book as the "smaller, full-color version of the original," including her recipes for the most popular roadside food and snacks as well as main courses, desserts, and drinks. Quinn has traveled to Jamaica frequently over the last 20 years, and she refers to the book as "an ode to the country I love so much." Along with the recipes, there is a brief introduction to the cuisine and its culinary history, and the readable recipe head notes contain additional information. Color photographs of the island's food and people provide further context. Recommended for most collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Highly Recommended

    The recipes are delicious and the steps described explicitly. The book also contains colorful pictures that help to assure that you are using the correct ingredients. It certainly helps non-Jamaicans to keep the Jamaicans in the house happy!
