Jamaican Cooking Classes and Other Caribbean Culinary Adventures

Do you love Jamaican cooking? Jerk chicken or pork, tropical fruit drinks (with rum!), spicy meats and fresh seafood - you can learn more about these dishes in culinary classes and tasting tours throughout the Caribbean.


If you're visiting Jamaica, consider staying at the Hotel Mockingbird Hill in Port Antonio.

They offer on-site cooking classes by their resident chefs and staff.

You'll start the class at 11am, and enjoy the fruits (and vegetables!) of your labor for lunch. You'll also have a jar of Jerk Sauce to re-create your culinary treats at home.

The Jamaican Culinary Experience is offered on a daily basis, year round. (And the hotel is one of the best in the area!)


- You can learn to cook with local rum or curries, fresh seafood and chocolate, at Nicole's Table . How does grilled shrimp with a rum glaze sound? Or curried chicken with pumpkin and chickpeas? Followed by a guava tart with rum creme!

- Or how about a week-long culinary tour with hands-on classes, market tours, an island cruise, rum distillery tour, duty-free shopping and a steel drum music night? This vacation (including luxurious accommodations) is available from Caribbean Culinary Tours . They have a very similar trip to Barbados, too.


- Have you heard of CuisinArt? No, not the food processor - CuisinArt Resort Spa is a luxury resort in Anguilla. And, as befitting its name, they offer both hands-on and demonstration culinary classes.

The resort prides itself on its organic ingredients, grown right on the property. They also have the only hydroponic (water) farm on a Caribbean resort (you'll get a tour in the demonstration class).
