With one of my grandparent’s being Jamaican, I grew up being a lover of all Jamaican and Caribbean cuisine. When I found this book, I could not pass up the opportunity to give it a try. The best part about this book, is that it is not only filled with unique Jamaican recipes, it also contains many delicious classic American dishes too. Jacqueline’s Cuisines is a cookbook filled with detailed descriptions and clever writing. This book will definitely help me understand the roots and flavours of Jamaican cooking. I bought this book quite recently and tonight I tried out my first dish from Jacqueline’s Cuisines - Oxtail Stew. This is probably one of my favorite Jamaican dishes and I was really excited to try out this recipe. Let me tell you - it was amazing and the “2nd seasoning” added a bunch of extra flavour. The instructions were clear and precise, allowing for a very easy process. The writing style was personable which also made it enjoyable to read. I am looking forward to trying out more recipes from Jacqueline’s Cuisines, I have faith they will be just as, if not more tasty than my first try at this Oxtail Stew. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Jamaican dishes, or wants to try their hand at some twists on classic American meals.
