In "Tropical Palate Taste of Jamaica," the author welcomes the reader to her Jamaican kitchen and home. She has been preparing Jamaican dishes for her family, friends, and co-workers for many years. Through their referrals, she has had the privilege of catering for large parties, company picnics, weddings, and intimate gatherings for some of Miami and Miami Beach's movers and shakers. With her husband, they have poured their hearts into a successful neighborhood restaurant specializing in, of course, their fantastic native cuisine. It is from the urging of family, friends, and customers that she decided to write this cookbook.\n\nThe ingredients are easy to find on any local supermarket shelf. They emphasize the exotic and delicious Caribbean fruit, vegetables and spices that give these dishes their unparallel taste and sensuality. I hope these meals and recipes will enhance your taste buds beyond your expectations. Dorette.
