5It Jerk Mon
By Old Man from the Valley
When we went to Jamaica in ’05 for the first time, we broke out of the all-inclusive, rented a driver and took a day trip long the north coast. We had our first meat patties and stopped at the driver’s favorite jerk stand and had our first real jerk chicken washed down with Red Stripe.

When we cook out of this book, every recipe takes us back. We brought Helen’s first book back with us from Jamaica and we never cooked anything from it that we didn’t enjoy. What I get from this book is the sense of Jerk. I grow my own Scotch Bonnets and now prefer them over the many Habanero varieties I’ve grown. I look for the biggest Jamaican pimento berries I can find (usually at a Mexican grocery).

If you’ve ever had jerk and wondered if you can do it too–buy this book. You can! Follow her recipes and it will be jerk, Mon.

5Delicious Jamaican Jerk Cooking
By H. Grove
I received “Jerk from Jamaica” in the mail on Saturday, and my husband and I couldn’t resist planning a feast for the next day. Already I’m singing the praises of this book, and I just can’t get enough of the leftovers.

Helen Willinsky grew up in Jamaica, studied cooking in Europe, and ran a resort in Jamaica; she includes family recipes, traditional recipes, and recipes that blend older Jamaican elements with newer ingredients and traditions. She strikes a beautiful balance, one so many authors fail to achieve, between introducing us to traditional methods and ingredients and yet making it possible for us to enjoy Jamaican flavors in our own kitchens even if we don’t have access to a barbecue grill or all of the traditional Jamaican flavorings.

You’ll need access to some sort of barbecue grill or the equivalent in order to get the most out of this cookbook, it’s true, but it’s certainly worth buying even if you don’t have that. Oven directions are included for many recipes, and there are even adaptations to the slow cooker and other such modern conveniences. A few sources for ingredients are provided, as well as substitutions using more commonly-found items.

The quality of the recipes is right up there with the Sugar Mill cookbook, but this book focuses primarily on a simpler, narrower type of cooking. It’s easy to whip up these recipes with little advance notice, but they’ll satisfy your tastebuds for days on end. If you’re looking for something new to do with your grill, this will certainly qualify!

4Excellent jerk recipe
By Andrea Jack Marq
I am a Jamaican that has lived in the United States going on 9 years.I love to cook and I love jerk chicken and have tried many different variations of this recipe from online resources, marinades and other cookbooks. The results have always been disappointing, to say the least. I bought this book based on the reviews and tried one of the first recipes, the jerk marinade. I marinated it in chicken over night and cooked it on my gas grill with pimento wood chips as instructed – oh my goodness it was delicious! Tasted just like the jerk chicken I grew up with and love. Finally an authentic jerk recipe that I can make for my friends and family members!
