What Is Festival?
Festival is a Jamaican pastry-like food that pairs well with virtually every Jamaican dish. It’s great as a delicious side served with jerk chicken, fried fish, lobster or as an appetizer. It also goes well with your favorite dip, a steamy cup of soup, or even as dessert topped with whip cream.
This original hails from Jamaica’s Hellshire Beach, known for having the best fish and Festival on the island, a MUST for anyone wanting to experience Jamaica like a Jamaican.
