Jamaican Food Jamaica is a culturally varied country in whose population most notably includes Africans, African- Europeans, and Chinese. The different races have reached Jamaica most likely through expeditions to overcome the land or for buying and selling purposes which have left numerous influences upon Jamaican culture , particularly in Jamaican cuisine. Jamaican food may not be as common as Chinese, japanese , or chinese language food, but it's strongly making its mark in the food industry. Original Jamaican occupants , the Arawak and the Carib Indian tribes have established an abundant variety of cooking food styles and methods , using the clean produce indigenous to the island. Even though Caribs are known to be cannibals, they are known to spice uncooked meat and seafood using chili peppers , a staple in Jamaican cooking food. Arawaks, on the other hand , devised the slow- cooking approach to meat through placing this on a make shift wooden grill over open fire. Food historians believe that this method is exactly what pioneered grilling. At present , one of the staples in Jamaican diet is breadfruit. Introduced within the 1700s as well as other fruits and plants once unfamiliar to the isle , these imports became part of Jamaican food as we know this. African settlers also introduced the use of okra, callaloo, and ackee, that are now common ingredients in Jamaican cooking food. Chinese and Indian servants who as soon as worked in vast Jamaican coffee plantations also imported their own cooking food methods and ingredients in order to Jamaica. Their own influence is apparent in Jamaican's fondness for curried goat, the Jamaican favorite usually reserved for special occasions. Rice is also included in the wide array of Jamaican food and offers neutral flavors to complement naturally hot Jamaican food. Since Jamaica is surrounded by water, it's no wonder which seafood performs an important role in Jamaican food. Salted cod is one of the best-known Jamaican meals that is usually served along with ackee. Jamaican jerk is also a popular dish renowned for its spicy, tangy flavor. Jerk can either be considered a dry seasoning rubbed straight into the beef or could be combined with water in which in order to marinate beef.
