Don’t believe me? Check this out…
For many Jamaicans, Patty is just part of the food culture. Having a patty or two on a weekly basis, dare I say daily basis, is as natural as rice and peas for Sunday dinner. Our patty culture is so rich and so deeply ingrained in Jamaica, that it breaks through societal barriers and brings us together. You may even think we came up with the ingenious idea of filling a flaky crust with beef, chicken, fish, lobster and the like. We didn’t, but I’m sure we perfected.The Business of Patty is a historical one, and without going into too much of a history lesson, let’s just say it’s one of the rare gifts left by our colonial ancestors that has actually benefited us. One we’ve, in true Jamaican style, made uniquely ours and perfected.
Today, centuries later, patty is a BOOMIN’ business with numerous players on the market, such as Tastees, Juici, Mother’s and Devon House Bakery, creating their own signature recipes.
When we decided to put a few self proclaimed patty connoisseurs to the test, we had no idea it was this deep.
