About this project
This book will include 70 authentic & modern Caribbean recipes made easy by two brothers inspired by their Jamaican Grandmother & mother - including healthier ingredient alternatives.
Our products will also help you maximise the delicious flavours in the food!
5% of published proceeds will go to help feeding less fortunate children in Jamaica through Loving Hands Children's Network.
All profits will be invested in printing more books/products and help to get them into bookstores/supermarkets worldwide.
Our passion to cook was inspired by our Jamaican Grandmother & Mother's meals growing up. After seeing the happiness it brought our friends, we set up a Facebook page to help them how to cook it, through short video guides shot in our grandmothers house...
One year later, the page now helps thousands of people all over the world cook delicious Caribbean food! Check out the page
Our mission is to make Caribbean cooking easy and get your tastebuds saying "YA MON!"

Getting a publisher can take up to 1 year of negotiations to even get considered. Which seems way too long! You also do not own the rights of the book.
We believe you can do anything in life, though the odds may be stacked against us, we believe with your help we can self publish ourselves and see the dream of our book being in all the major bookstores in the UK and worldwide. And we're working hard to make that happen!
We're passionate about The Caribbean and want to make sure it's authentic food doesn't get lost in today's and future generations.

Risks and challenges
We promise to take pictures of the food before eating it :) We have experience of production, we don't see any issues arising. However just in case:
What if the recipes are hard to understand?
We will offer full recipe support via social media or email - we'll be happy to offer speedy solutions :)
What if the ingredients are hard to find?
Most supermarkets have the ingredients nowadays, however, we can give alternatives which give you similar taste results :)
What are the exact dates/delivery of the rewards?
The rewards give an estimated delivery date, once the campaign is over we'll keep you updated with dates for each reward
