The Roots of Jerk Chicken

Jamaican jerk chicken holds a delicious history that dates back centuries. Derived from the techniques of the indigenous Taino people, and later adapted by enslaved Africans, this unique cooking style combines a medley of spices and flavors like no other. Our talented Caribbean food chefs use time-honored recipes to create an unforgettable dining experience.

The Flavors and Ingredients

The heart of jerk chicken lies in the distinctive spice blend. Influenced by the indigenous Pimento wood, scotch bonnet peppers, allspice, thyme, cloves, and garlic provide a harmonious balance of heat and aromatic flavor. Marinated to perfection, the chicken is then slow-cooked or grilled, retaining its moisture and tenderness.
