Caribbean Food Made Easy – Levi Roots, who first found fame after his successful foray in BBC Two’s Dragons’ Den, presents this exciting new series about Caribbean cuisine. The Jamaican-born cook, musician and food enthusiast brings the food and flavours of the Caribbean to life with a range of mouth-watering, accessible dishes.
From traditional recipes learned as a child in his grandmother’s Jamaican kitchen to the latest in nouvelle Caribbean cuisine, Levi reveals the full range of this extraordinary fusion food.
As well as taking a journey back to Jamaica in search of the history and culture underlying some of his best-loved dishes, he travels the UK, persuading those who have never tried Caribbean dishes before to tuck in.
He makes a case in Cornwall for patties alongside pasties, champions the red-hot Scotch Bonnet chilli and shows the fishermen of Mull how to spice up their seafood and their sea shanties.
