Get the taste of the Caribbean this summer at Birmingham’s first Jerk Festival!



Celebrate Jamaican Independence Day 2019 as Taste and Liquor present the regions first Caribbean Smoke and Fire Festival. Experience the Absolute Best Jerk Chicken in Birmingham.



As summer slowly approaches, imagine yourself in sunny Jamaica, where spicy jerk is the star of the scene. Let's face it: who can resist a plate of spicy, crispy barbecued chicken or pork served with some rice and peas, fried plantain and vanilla infused dumplings? Doused down with a few Rum Cocktails, a swiggger and swag to some great music from The Shabba Soundsytem, throw in some 80s retro arcade games and say hello to the regions first Jerk Festival!



There’s a reason jerk chicken, which is thought to have originated in Jamaica, is a staple in the cuisines of many other Caribbean islands: it’s spectacular, a marvel of spicy complexity and textures.


Native to Jamaica, Jerk Chicken traditonal began with the indigenous Taíno people who would cook their meat over fires made from the aromatic wood of the island's allspice trees – which is still the only way, devotees claim, to get that really authentic flavour. Jerk's distinctive seasoning – hot peppers, sweet allspice berries, thyme and ginger – and the cooking pits which were traditionally used for jerk until the advent of the modern oil drum.



We’re lucky, in this city, to have the food of these islands so well represented, and to have a wealth of exciting options when it comes to this classic dish. At Taste and Liquor Jerk Festival, we’ve rounded up the absolute best Jerk dishes in Birmingham.



With big beats from The Shabba Soundsytem featuring guest DJ’s from Brunch’n and Hip Hop, R&B Brunch and Tropical Munch, a Rum Bar serving the best rum punch-cocktails, sprits, Guinness Punch and Jamaican Beer.



Taste and Liquors' Jerk Festival is a ray of Jamaican sunshine in Digbeth.
