A book highlighting traditional Jamaican cuisine was presented to Prime Minister David Thompson today, at his official residence, Ilaro Court.

Entitled ???Nyam Jamaica – A Culinary Tour???, it explains the origins of Jamaican dishes and takes readers on a journey through pictures and prose of indigenous meals that reflect the spirit of the country.

Author, Rosemary Parkinson, said the book represented some of her culinary travels and explained why certain foods were eaten. She described it as ???a roller-coaster ride of the man in the street and gives you a feel of the country???.

Mrs. Parkinson added that a copy would also be presented to the Barbados Public Library and disclosed a similar edition describing local Barbadian cuisine would be launched in the future.

Mr. Thompson congratulated Mrs. Parkinson on her achievement and expressed delight in accepting the book. He said he was looking forward to the publication on Barbadian cooking and reminisced about the preparation of local dishes as a significant part of our cultural heritage.??clashley@barbados.gov.bb
