"Barbeque, Jamaican style" - I thought this story was pretty interesting, how a guy would go all this way just to get the authentic taste of Jamaican jerk barbeque. I myself have tried so-called Jamaican jerk chicken, so-called because the flavor wasn't really intense or anything. The history of Jamaican jerk barbeque is pretty interesting, the legacy of colonialism.
"A flowering of appetite" - I thought this article was pretty strange. I'm just not use to someone talking about a death of a relative thats not sort or mournful or sad. I thought the story of her making the soup for her grandmother was sentimental and I could really relate with many of the foods she talked about. I also like how she ended the article with her recipe for the soup that she gave her grandmother.
"Devil with a red apron" - I really like how he wrote the piece, it had some funny parts like describing himself as "damien". Even though I never saw the movie (the omen I think), I've heard about the story of the demon kid, damien. Otherwise, I can totally imagine an old lady cooking over a stove, adding ingrediants when needed and being stubborn when asked if they could learn her recipes by just writing the ingrediants down. I really liked this article and could relate a little with it.Posted by poon0022 at June 15, 2005 12:31 PM
