Soup on Saturdays is a family tradition in many Jamaican homes. Red Pea Soup is an all-time favourite!

Jamaican Sunday Dinner has been a renowned tradition kept for as long as anyone living can remember. So well kept that it is sometimes inexcusable to miss this Sunday evening gathering of every member of the household around the table for a meal. Even if you happen to find yourselves at a family reunion without both Grandmothers present you dare not eat dinner prepared by one without also making space for that of the other, it is that serious.

The Jamaican Sunday dinner is most often characterized by the traditional main course of any Jamaican chicken recipe and the famous Jamaican Rice and Peas recipe. This however is not set in stone as some families may choose Curried Goat, Oxtail cooked with broad beans, Escovitch Fish or even Pork as the meat of choice but the most popular is Oven Roasted OR Brown Stew Chicken. With this is the Rice and Peas, Fresh Salad, Macaroni & Cheese and Sweet option all of which you will be learning today!
