There's something about the beginning of Summer that transports us to exotic locales. This month we are inspired by the flavors of Jamaica. Spicy. Soulful. Bold. What better three reasons to stay home and cook together as a couple?
Jamaica is a country rife with political unrest. Yet despite their oppression, they are people who continue to find joy in food, music and tradition. It is in that same spirit that we honor the people and their culture with this menu. Much love!

Nothing compliments the Jamaican heat like a cold bottle of Red Stripe. The beer synonymous with Jamaica is the perfect accompaniment to jerk chicken, uncomplicated and easy to drink it won't distract from the flavors of the jerk.
We love cult classics and this innaguaral movie in the James Bond series is a favorite. Assigned to a mission in Jamaica, Bond (Sean Connery) is met by a deadly beauty named Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) who emerges from the sea in a tiny white bikini, a knife holster slung about her hips, as one of the most seductive and iconic Bond-girls of all time. Some say the movie is worth watching just for that one scene alone. We think its one of the best, albeit less flashy, of the Bond movies filled with excellent adventures...both in and out of the bedroom.
