Ackee and Saltfish

Food tastes better when someone else cooks it for you right? Well, definitely the surprise I had yesterday when Chris (my brother in law) cooked me a packed lunch of Ackee and Saltfish, it did. In the 18th Century, the people of Newfoundland island bought over salted cod (saltfish) to Jamaica to trade for rum, it's now Jamaica's National dish and I can see why.

Chris cooks really good homely food taught to him by his Jamaican dad Felix, I am yet to try his Curried Goat, but hear it's a bit of phenomenon. The best bit of my packed lunch? The sweet dumpling.... mmmmm
Thanks Chris!
