Artist's Description

On Saturdays many Jamaicans flock the nearest pastry shops for their patties. It is bought steaming hot straight out of the oven. Many of us enjoy this treat with our famous Jamaican Red Stripe beer….icy cold.
This patty is broken in half…that’s how we cool it sometimes…me anyway.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jamaican patties and a Red Stripe beer.
A Jamaican patty or pattie is a pastry that contains various fillings and spices baked inside a flaky shell, often tinted golden yellow with an egg yolk mixture or turmeric. It is made like a turnover but is more savory. As its name suggests, it is commonly found in Jamaica, and is also eaten in other areas of the Caribbean, such as Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. In Haiti, the pastry is thick and crispy, making it essentially a turnover. It is traditionally filled with seasoned ground beef, but fillings can include chicken, vegetables, shrimp, lobster, fish, soy, ackee, mixed vegetables or cheese. In Jamaica, the patty is often eaten as a full meal, especially when paired with bread. It can also be made as bite-sized portions called cocktail patties.
