Jamaican Grata Cake Recipe and Demonstration

Hi Couples family,

One of the best parts about going to Couples Resorts and being in Jamaica, is no doubt, the incredible cuisine. One of my favorite activities to participate in while on-property is the cooking or pastry demonstrations, so I can learn a bit and take the recipes home to recreate when I am having major Jamaica withdrawals. 

Our pastry demonstration class at Couples Negril focuses on local ingredients and recipes, some of which have been around for centuries and plays a major role in the Jamaican cuisine. The property offers this class once per week, so be sure you mark your calendar so you don't miss it while in Negril.

Watch this video below to learn how to make Jamaican Grata Cake. 

Enjoy!
