National Jamaican Jerk Day

The air in New Jersey today is cold, damp and gloomy but, my grill is hot, and the ale is flowing. Today is the last Sunday in October which, according to the USA National Day Archives, is National Jamaican Jerk Day. 📷

National Jamaican Jerk Day celebrates the unique way of seasoning and grilling foods, originated by the Maroons in Jamaica. Jerk cuisine has evolved from simple street food to being served in top-class restaurants worldwide and celebrated through numerous Jerk Festivals around the globe. National Jamaican Jerk Day

I grilled Jamaican Jerk Chicken with Cilantro Aioli using a recipe from Life of the Party.
