That's a frequent question from my friends who wish they were here.
Well, this morning's fare began with freshly perked Jamaican Coffee from Country Traders. To be honest, my guests often ask if what we are serving is Blue Mountain Coffee, but I have discovered that with Country Traders' high mountain coffee, it is all in the roast!
Let's check with Olive Senior's Encyclopedia of Jamaican Heritage for the story behind this Jamaican accompaniment.
"FESTIVAL - Fried dumpling of cornmeal and flour, associated with the famous Hellshire Beach near Kingston where the women there first cooked it to go with their fried fish. The name celebrates the Jamaica FESTIVAL, the big August INDEPENDENCE celebrations."
So, there you have it. Breakfast at Neita's Nest. As good as a day on the beach.
