Jamaican Meat Patties
I first fell in love with Jamaican patties when I was a young girl. My mum, who grew up in Jamaica, discovered a wonderful Jamaican patty shop in Vancouver. The owner just loved my mum because she could talk all-things-Jamaica with him (when she really got going, the Jamaican accent came back). I loved him because he made patties with the flakiest crust and most flavorful meat. I don't think the shop is there anymore, but the taste of those patties left a permanent mark in my memory.
