Transport yourself to the beaches of Jamaica and make Kwame’s favorite fried dish. The freshly-caught snapper is rubbed with marination and all-purpose seasoning, shallow-fried until the skin crisps, then is drenched with Escovitch sauce, a mixture of vinegar, carrots, onions, all-spice, and spicy Scotch bonnet peppers.
Kwame Onwuachi started peeling shrimp and stirring roux at 5 years old in his mother’s catering kitchen in the Bronx. The James Beard Award-winning chef has received many accolades since then, including FOOD & WINE’S Best New Chef, Esquire Magazine’s 2019 Chef of the Year, 30 Under 30 honoree by both Forbes and Zagat, and has appeared on Bravo’s Top Chef as both a contestant and judge. In his class, Onwuachi embraces the richness of Afro-Caribbean culture and cuisine, and teaches students how to cook his favorite Jamaican recipes.
