My brother Levi Roots told me allspice, or pimento as it's called in Jamaica, is the secret to jerk chicken. The allspice berry adds about five flavours in one, so it's a powerful little thing. Levi has seven kids – there must be something pretty special in that sauce!! Growing up in Jamaica, Levis says, there was an amazing community spirit and lots of outdoor cooking, and people would go and visit their neighbours when they caught wafts of it. I love the sound of that.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
