Kwame’s lesson plan

Take a journey to Jamaica with chef Kwame Onwuachi, to discover the roots of his Afro-Caribbean food.

Kwame just landed in Jamaica, and while he’s not yet sure what he’s going to cook, he’s going to stock his pantry with all the essentials: jerk paste, marination, curry powder, and all-purpose seasoning, which he calls “salt on steroids”.

Looking for the secret of how to get your food to taste better than everyone else’s? Kwame will show you how. Learn how to make chicken stock, shrimp stock, and vegetable stock, and you’ll instantly elevate your food.

Pepper shrimp is one of Kwame’s favorite snacks. Growing up in the Bronx, he’d always chow down on the electrifying dish. Learn how to make this easy shrimp recipe, which is preserved in a spicy sauce.

Jamaican recipes are famous for imparting flavor with an overnight marinades. In this lesson, Kwame shows how to make marinades for three classic dishes: brown stew chicken, oxtails, and curried goat.

Beef patties are Jamaica’s ubiquitous fast food. Kwame teaches how to make the patty pastry dough, the beautifully seasoned beef filling, and delicious pillowy coco bread.

Transport yourself to the beach and make Kwame’s favorite fried dish. Rub the freshly-caught snapper with marination and all-purpose seasoning, shallow-fried until the skin crisps, then add Escovitch sauce, a spicy and vinegary pickling liquid.

Kwame grew up eating this "pot of wonderful magic liquid" with his father: a stew dish with gungo peas (pigeon peas), red peas (kidney beans), salted meats, and coconut milk. Make a huge pot for the whole family to taste the love!

Learn how to blacken and braise chicken in a rich brown gravy with a hint of spicy Scotch bonnet pepper. Kwame serves it with fried plantains and Calypso aioli, making it a fantastic dish that will be a total crowd pleaser. The essence of Jamaica on a plate.

Kwame’s mom, Jewel, is in town which calls for a celebratory meal: braised oxtails with coconut rice and pigeon peas. And of course, no family gathering would be complete without a refreshing rum punch cocktail packed with fresh Jamaican fruits.

Master your cooking skills and add flavorful dishes to your repertoire with this delicious curried goat and GBD potatoes recipe, prepared with a tangy green seasoning aioli. Learn how to caramelize, braise, layer flavors, and cook with intention as you taste each step along the way. Enjoy this delicious dish and refine your cooking skills.

Jerk, a symphony of flavors, encapsulating the finesse, attention to detail, and all of the nuances of Jamaican cooking. Learn this iconic dish known for its intense depth of smokiness, heat, spice, and flavor. The 3-day cooking process is totally worth it.
