Celebrate Notting Hill Carnival with this delicious Caribbean recipe

In a few days, a part of the Caribbean will be visiting our country and flooding Notting Hill’s streets with colour. For almost half a century, the carnival has been beating in the hearts of Londoners (and increasingly more visitors) every August.

The origins of the Notting Hill Carnival are very different from those of Brazil, Venice or Tenerife, in Spain, that are celebrated before Lent. The Notting Hill Carnival began in 1964, when the Afro-Caribbean communities wanted to recover their tradition of celebrating carnivals. This tradition has been taking place since the early 19th century in the Caribbean, especially in the island of Trinidad, to celebrate the end of slavery. Feathers, sequins and Caribbean rhythms come from this little corner of the world to fill our city with the best of cultural diversity.

Today we suggest the most Caribbean recipe to celebrate the Carnival: jerk chicken, named after a fiery mixture of spices native to Jamaica. It’s important to keep in mind that some of these ingredients are very spicy and can damage the eyes, so be careful!

Once this is done, you can enjoy this wonderful Caribbean dish!
