Protein and Produce: “This is the essence of how we eat here, where we combine some sort of protein with starch. You know it's always roast chicken and rice and peas or more in the colonial traditions of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding or roast lamb with potatoes, so this section was about the meats and produce that we consume. We tend to eat a lot of heavy starchy foods here, so we tried to balance this section out with lighter vegetables using plantain, beets, cassava and eggplant.” — Jamaica Food & Drink Festival Brunch at the Gallery co-hosts/caterers and The West India Table conceptualisers Michelle and Suzanne Rousseau .
