News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri September 10, 2021: World travel may be largely at a standstill due to the pandemic, but New Yorkers will have the chance to ‘Taste Morsels of Jamaica’ today.

Unique Weddings & Tours (UW&T), in collaboration with the Jamaica Tourist Board, will host the unique and intimate showcase of Jamaican cuisine and culture today, Friday, September 10, 2021 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Brooklyn Commons (Rooftop), 495 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11225.

Now in its fifth year, the annual staging of this rich Jamaican cultural experience is designed to cement destination Jamaica in the hearts and minds of New Yorkers, especially Brooklynites.

According to Kim Morrison, conceptualizer and promoter of the event: “New York City is known as the ‘melting pot’ of many cultures and people. Brooklynites will be delighted to discover the island’s rich offerings right in their backyard.

She hopes the event will inspire them to further explore what Jamaica has to offer both in the diaspora and through visits to the island in the near future.

Customers can expect to sample samples of the island’s renowned cuisine, including chicken and jerk pork, pickled mackerel, escovitch fish, sautéed spicy herring, bammy, and breadfruit. Popular drinks such as sorrel, ginger beer, and rum punch will be available to wash it all down. They can complete it all with sweet treats such as rum cake, potato pudding, gizzadas, grated cake and coconut drops. Entertainment will be provided by the band Skamatixx who will perform a repertoire from the Jamaican musical Journey from Mento to Reggae.
