Jay’s big sister lives in Jamaica, and when he went last year to visit her he came back with all sorts of descriptions of fabulous foods that I’ve attempted to recreate here in the States. It’s been fun, but has made me want to move to an island where the main side dish is rice with some kind of beans at every meal.
In Jamaica, they eat rice and peas, which is basically black beans and rice with some kick-ass island-esque flavorings. Not joking.
You’ll be stunned by the amazing flavors.
