Most of us rather won’t have hardships in our life, but little do we realize that it is these very hardships that make our life more enjoyable. This realization is found aplenty in the people of the Caribbean country of Jamaica. The Jamaican culture has been influenced by many cultures and each place in Jamaica has a multicultural environment. Life has been hard for the Jamaican people since the beginning but the people there have a special attitude of being laid back and carefree. They wear their hearts on their sleeves and their smiles on their faces and no matter how hard you search, it will be difficult to find a Jamaican who is not happy with his life.
It is exactly this attitude which the Jamaicans have also infused in their steaks. The Jamaican cuisine has a very Caribbean flavor to them and their steaks have a very flavorful and clean taste. Jamaicans use spices like thyme, paprika, garlic and nutmeg and a variety of sauces made from herbs profusely in their steaks. They have a very unique way of preparing food which traps in the juices and makes it very spicy and flavorful. Their steaks are like their streets and like their people. Honest and fun-loving. Their cuisine reminds us that even the simplest things in life can be the most enjoyable. The essence of Jamaican food is that it is very true and straight-forward with no gimmicks and pure skill. The food prepared has that intangible element of love and the desire to cook something wonderful for the guests which make each of their foods special. Their steaks also have an amazing pepper called the Scotch Bonnet Pepper which makes them subtly spicy and a delight to eat.
The distinct feature of the Jamaicans is that they love everything and everyone. They believe in spreading love to everyone around them and they enjoy each and everything of their life. They enjoy the happy times and they also enjoy the sad times and hardships and roll with them with a smile on their face and love in their hearts. The great reggae singer Bob Marley once condensed this fun loving attitude of Jamaicans in his quote “Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you are riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts; put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!”
