Jamaican Cooking

Owen cooks the most wonderful meals, so last visit we asked if we could watch him cook and glean some hints from him. He most gratiously granted our request. This was one of the best cooking lesson vacations!

The dinner he prepared was fried fish with fish sauce, rice and peas, vegetables, fried plantain and roast irish potato. Owen cooks on coal stoves which require that you plan your heat when you plan your meal.
