Story

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.

Where will pledges be going?

  • Printing of hardbook to a professional quality standard
  • Design & Photography costs
  • Ingredient & product packaging costs
