Aunt May’s Crisp Festival Was the Best!

Bradford Thompson, F&W Best New Chef 2004 along with Jamaican wife Kerry-Ann Evans-Thompson culinary travel through Jamaica.

“Kerry-Ann’s family, including her mischievous nonagenarian grandmother, who wore a broad-brimmed black hat that seemed permanently affixed to her head, reveled in the disagreement that unfolded as we discussed island food traditions. “Why is an avocado called a pear?” Kerry-Ann asked. Because it is shaped like a pear, her family answered. “But then why do Jamaicans call a pear an apple?” she countered. At least everyone agreed on one thing: The crisp festival that Bradford learned at Aunt May’s was the best.”

The Globe Getter! Travel Blogger Tausha’s 5 favourite places to eat in the world. Aunt May’s is #1.

“Every time my family is in Kingston, one thing we must do is visit Hellshire Beach to enjoy some lobster, fried fish, festival (a cornmeal fritter with a slightly sweet taste) and bammy (cassava flatbread). There is a lot of frying involved but it’s never greasy or heavy, and though there are a ton of options to choose from at Hellshire Beach, Aunt May’s is my favorite. The food here is always flavorful and a great value.”

As I sat down at “Aunt May’s” Kitchen and Rum Shop devouring my fried fish and freshly-prepared lobster…
