Who wants to learn to cook real Jamaican Jerk Chicken?

It's a well-known fact that Bob Marley liked his doughnuts with jam in. And he hoped you like jam in too, but we bet the Jamaican icon also loved to get up, stand up, stir it up and cook real Jamaican jerk chicken. And now you can too on this amazing, intimate and affordable cookery course on the most chillaxed island on earth. 

First, you'll be welcomed at a local beach and bar by your friendly hosts, Sherie and Wes before they drive you through beautiful countryside to the secret site of your cookery course. But before you begin, you need to know that island-born and raised Sherie is a lover of authentic Jamaican cuisine who has been cooking since her childhood. And luckily for you, she's about to pass on the secret of her family's most famous signature dish; a recipe that has been perfected generation after generation... on to you to keep forever. Forever ever? Forever ever.

Kicking off your boots and going back to your roots in the magical botanical gardens, you'll learn the best techniques for preparing the perfect, jerk chicken - from marinading your bird in jerk sauce to basting and firing up an authentic local BBQ drum. In addition to actually getting to eat the most mouthwatering, out-of-this-world barbequed chicken, Sherie's collaborative lesson will also teach you how to make breadfruit, sweet potato or bread side dishes. Oh, and she's so lovely, she'll even send you home with English instructions so you can make your own delicious jerk chicken to impress your friends and fam. 

In addition to Sherie's interactive dining experience, what else happens? Or in Jamaican... Wha Gwaan? 

Well, under the shade of the tranquil botanical gardens, as you take a dip in the idyllic river near de gentle ickle trickle off the waterfall, you'll get to chill with a Red Stripe sorrell or some stronger local tipple. You'll learn, laugh, play Jamaican stylee dominoes (Wes will win!) and maybe even have a singalong, a dance and a Jah-inspired Rastafari jam with a guitar.
