In Jamaica, if we eat what we grow and grow what we eat, then the Ministry of Agriculture's mandate of providing access to safe, nutritious foods for our people would be greatly advanced.
"In Jamaica, if we eat what we grow and grow what we eat, then the Ministry of Agriculture's mandate of providing access to safe, nutritious foods for our people would be greatly advanced." With these words in his preface, Roger Clarke, Jamaica's Minister of Agriculture, hits the nail right on the head. What better way is there to promote a nation's agricultural sector and healthy food for its population than by publishing a cook book? The recipes look and are tasty (our editor can attest to that!) and the book is graphically attractive, as one would expect from a recipe book. This kind of initiative is worthy of being taken up by other countries - and their Ministers. Cook Up Jamaican Style.
