A family style communal table. Lots of platters going around the table of spicy, colorful and flavorful dishes from Jamaica and Trinidad. These 2 islands, due to absurd imperialist conditions, developed amazing cuisines due to forced migration of African and Indian people to these islands. Over the centuries, these 2 cultures interacted with the native Tainu culture and were later joined by Jews, Chinese and others. Amazing food!!!
