>From pre-Columbian times to the present, Jamaica has been a melting pot of many cultural influences. Nowhere is this better reflected than in its wonderful food. From the delicious barbecue style of the Arawak Indians (the inhabitants of the island when Columbus landed) to the Spanish escoveitch, Jamaican cooks have taken many different styles of cooking and given them all that "special island twist". Out of a diverse mix of foods, spices, and cultures has come this wonderful array of tempting dishes as lively as the people of Jamaica themselves. "Duckana" "Steamed Callalu", "Avocado Sauce", "Fried Green Plantain", "Johnny Cakes", "Stuffed Breadfruit", "Tabouli", "Falafels", "Vegetable Lasagna", "Nutty Bean Loaf", and a lot more mouthwatering taste delights await within the pages of Delicious Jamaica! -- Midwest Book Review
