There is far more to Jamaica than its beautiful coast, warm people and welcoming beaches – there’s also its culinary dishes which are sometimes overlooked. Stephen Charoo explained that jerk is one of the best representations of Jamaican cuisine, which is known for its flavors and spices.

Jerk is made up of a distinct blend of herbs and spices and applied to a meat such as chicken, pork, lamb or fish. There are six key ingredients: pimento seeds, thyme, scallion, onion, garlic and scotch bonnet pepper.

“There is really nothing subtle about a good jerk meal: you will experience an explosion of flavours, spice, and succulence,” wrote Charoo.
