Love at first bite - Jamaican Beef Patties! _ I've been to Jamaica more than once but it was not in Jamaica that I had my first bite of their famous beef patties and fell in love, it was in Guyana, many years ago! But the patties were made by Jamaicans. They were sooooo good. The all-shortening pastry crust (aka flaky pastry) is one of the stars of this patty. You can see the flakes as the patty comes out of the oven.
Jamaican Patties - the last time I went to Negril, for 4 days straight, i sat on the beach from roughly 8am-4pm. The Patty Man walked by my chair every day and I bought a beef patty for lunch to enjoy with my Red Stripe. That was an awesome 4 days of peace and sunshine.
