This intriguing and beloved Caribbean seasoning blend spices up a sun-soaked menu from the islands.

First, you'll learn what goes into the special combination of seasonings to create your own jerk rub. Then, prepare a jerk shrimp appetizer, handmade festival dumplings and jerk chicken with classic rice and peas. For dessert, fry up a batch of plantain fritters with spiced rum caramel sauce that will make your tastebuds sing!
