On this date in 1494 Christopher Columbus set foot on Jamaica. Today’s Jamaican cuisine includes a mixture of cooking techniques, flavors, spices and influences from the indigenous people on the island of Jamaica, and the Spanish, Irish, British, African, Indian and Chinese who have inhabited the island. It is also influenced by the crops introduced into the island from tropical Southeast Asia. Jamaican cuisine includes various dishes from the different cultures brought to the island with the arrival of people from elsewhere.
Tonight, we will dine on seafood escovitch, jerk style chicken, curried goat stew and finish with Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee brownies with pecans. Complementary cocktails and Red Stripes will be served.
This class meets on the main level in the Education Wing.
Our cooking classes are held in our commercial kitchen. You will be seated at a counter on countertop stools, so please wear comfortable clothing. Layers are best, the temperature fluctuates often.
