Caribbean

Caribbean food has the flavours of sunshine - lots of hot sweet spices and smoky flavours from cooking over coals. Seek out Scotch bonnets for their intense sweet heat - cut out the membrane and seeds for if you don't like VERY hot chillies - the secret to making great jerk dishes. Keep a supply of allspice or pimento berries for their pungent flavour of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg in every little dried fruit.
