Taste and Liquor Jerk Festival 2020
The Jerk Festival Sat 15 August
The Jerk Festival Sun 16 August

As summer slowly approaches, imagine yourself in sunny Jamaica, where spicy jerk is the star of the scene. Let's face it: who can resist a plate of spicy, crispy barbecued chicken or pork served with some rice and peas, fried plantain and vanilla-infused dumplings? Doused down with a few Rum Cocktails, a swigger and swag to some great music from The Reggae Soundsytem, throw in some 80s retro arcade games and say hello to the regions biggest Jerk Festival!

There’s a reason jerk chicken, which is thought to have originated in Jamaica, is a staple in the cuisines of many other Caribbean islands: it’s spectacular, a marvel of spicy complexity and textures. Native to Jamaica, Jerk Chicken traditional began with the indigenous Taíno people who would cook their meat over fires made from the aromatic wood of the island's allspice trees – which is still the only way, devotees claim, to get that authentic flavour. Jerk's distinctive seasoning – hot peppers, sweet allspice berries, thyme and ginger – and the cooking pits which were traditionally used for jerk until the advent of the modern oil drum.

We’re lucky, in this city, to have the food of these islands so well represented, and to have a wealth of exciting options when it comes to this classic dish. At Taste and Liquors' Jerk Festival, we’ve rounded up the absolute best Jerk and Caribbean dishes in the Midlands.

With big beats from The Reggae Soundsytem featuring guest DJ’s from Brunch’n and Hip Hop, R&B Brunch and Tropical Munch, a Rum Bar serving the best Rum Punch-Cocktails, Guinness Punch and Jamaican Beer.

Taste and Liquors' Jerk Festival is a ray of Jamaican sunshine in Birmingham.
