Culinary Tour 2010 • Jamaica Round-Up

February 21, 2010 by Joan Nova in Culinary Tour Around the World, Events, Travel Retrospectives | 13 Comments

As we leave Jamaica with this very colorful and delicious round-up of dishes, I note that we are only 3 stops away from the conclusion of this tour. Haiti, Cuba and Puerto Rico remain. I’ve been having a great time. Based on entries and comments, so are you!

Please stay to end of this post to see special message re H20pe for Haiti.

Val of More Than Burnt Toast in Vancouver is back with us  after skipping a few stops and she brought along a Planter’s Punch and Jamaican Patties.

Next in was Andrea from Family + Food in Germany with Red Pea Soup.

Oz from Kitchen Butterfly in The Netherlands was on the same wavelength as me. She made jerked fish, creole sauce and rice with peas.

Erica of My Colombian Recipes made a traditional Jamaican Rice + Peas dish using red beans.

Danielle of So Many Recipes in Chicago made Bob Marley’s Chargrilled Jerk Chicken with Cucumber Dipping Sauce.

Natasha of 5 Star Foodie in VA made Jerk Chicken with a Uniq/Ugli Corn Salsa.

In case you missed it, FOODalogue made Jerk Fish Fillet, Tropical Melange and Coconut Rice + Peas

And, we begin and end with beautiful drinks. Here’s  Cinzia’s of Cindy Star (Italy) Planter’s Punch.

H20pe for Haiti is a one-week online raffle (ends Feb 28) with benefits to organizations providing fresh water and aid to Haiti. We’re trying to raise L10,000. Please purchase a raffle ticket (L6.50/$10 US est). You could be the recipient of a nice gift. See prize list at Cook Sister and then link over to Just Giving to purchase your raffle ticket. No time to waste - go now!

L = British pounds. I don’t know how to do proper symbol.

Next Stop: Haiti, March 1

They're meant as a guide to food pairings and techniques to be experimented with … in your own kitchen … to your own spice and taste levels … to your preferred portion sizes … and to however many people you’re cooking for.
