Jamaican Taste Experience

Half Day | Food Tour, Community Visit and Getting to Know Locals

Go village hopping in the central and south coast to learn to cook Jamaican cuisine in a natural setting alongside local community hosts.

Sample some of Jamaica’s fruits in season at Porus village – naseberries, ortaniques, starapples, tangerines and so much more. Taste plantain tarts or coconut gizzardas from the community shops in Middle Quarters village, St. Elizabeth. Or even see a cooking demonstration of hot peppered shrimps, fried fish and bammy with Billy Kerr and his family.
