The Origins of the ‘Patty’
CELEBRATING OVER 50 YEARS
Being a melting pot of people from different cultures, the motto of Jamaica is ‘Out of many, one people’. When the English settled in Jamaica in the 17th century, they brought with them the Cornish Pasty. This was infused with chillies, seasonings and curry spices that were in the country and eventually evolved into the Jamaican Patty which we have today.
