“Out of many…one Patty!”
The Jamaican patty has its roots in the Cornish pasty traditionally eaten by fishermen, miners and farm labourers. In Jamaica, Beef mince (or veggies!) was mixed with cumin and curry seasonings originating from East India & Africa. Finally the “firecracker” taste of the Scotch bonnet (a hot pepper that’s indigenous to Jamaica) was added – that sealed the flavour. This delicious filling was then baked into a perfectly flaky pastry – the Kingston Crust! However, it was the Chinese Jamaicans, who perfected the patty to make it the classic food we know and love today. “The patty shop” soon became a household name. It was the place where everyone could get a quick delicious meal on the go for the price of a few coins. Like the Jamaican motto, “Out of many One People”, we like to say “Out of many One Patty!”
