Jamaican Curry Chicken

Coriander , turmeric, cumin, fenugreek, and chili peppers are combined to make a delicious spice called curry. There are many regions where this Spice is used on hundreds of dishes. Each regions curry has a different flavor.

Jamaican curry is what I am use to and obviously my favorite. It is full of herbs and spices. It contain all spice which is one of my favorite seasonings for meat. One of the most popular Jamaican dish is curry chicken. A great way to enhance this meal and give it a very rich flavor is to add carrots and tomatoes. Adding a whole, uncut scotch bonnet pepper as the pot simmers is a great way to add spice and if more is desired, a few pieces of scotch bonnet or any pepper of choice can be added. I love this dish served over coconut garlic rice and garnished with plantains or dumplings.

Cooking with Love

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” ― George Bernard Shaw

Love is one of life’s greatest gifts. It is universal and can be shown in different ways. Cooking and sharing tasty food with my friends and family is a display of my love.

My friends and family love and enjoy food as much as I do, so I always hear the questions “ what did you cook?” and “ what are you cooking?”. Someone is always asking me to either make them a dish or teach them how to make a dish. It can be a bit overwhelming at times, but it is also a lovely connection.

My process of cooking is thought out carefully as spices, herbs and ingredients are matched purposefully to create an unforgettable taste and ambiance; its look and presentation has to be right also to capture those hearts. Cooking is an intimate process to me and is similar to building a loving relationship. When I’m giving someone my food I am giving them a little piece of my heart.
