"Rasta Salad and Brownies"

A warm sunny welcome from the Caribbean! I would like to share with you some of our lovely Jamaican dishes, in particular those associated with the Rastafarian movement.

Any true Rastafarian is a vegetarian and will only eat ‘Ital’ foods. Basically food that is served as raw as possible and without canned or processed foods. Some Rastafarians say they can eat fish, but not shellfish. Pork is a definite no-no. Liquor, milk, coffee and soft drinks are also seen as unnatural.

For all you feminists out there, you might be interested to know that many Rastafarian men are the ones who do the cooking. It is common for the woman to have the career, while the man remains at home tending the garden, looking after the children and prepares the food.

I should begin by saying that I am not Rastafarian, but I respect their beliefs and the way they see food as a gift. They do have some delicious recipes, and I’m going to share two of the most well-known (with some help with portion sizes from a Caribbean book called Culinaria).
