Start with a dry rub or start with a wet marinade; in Jerk
Helen Willinsky proves that the possibilities for jerked food are almost endless. Willinsky grew up in Kingston and still lives on Jamaica. She knows the real flavors of the island as well as how to cook jerk properly. Jamaica is brought to life in this volume--you can smell the smoke and feel the fiery tingle of great jerk while visions of sun and steel drumming keep you company in the kitchen.
From Library Journal
Several good Caribbean cookbooks such as John Demers's Caribbean Cooking ( LJ 3/15/89) and Dunstan Harris's Island Cooking: Recipes from the Caribbean ( LJ 12/88) have been published recently, but this is one of the first to focus on the especially popular Jamaican jerk, food that is highly seasoned with hot peppers and spices and, usually, barbecued. Jamaican-born Willinsky, a former chef, includes authentic jerk dishes of all kinds, accompaniments from drinks to desserts, and information on basics. Her tone is friendly but knowledgeable, her recipes delicious. For most collections.
