Love at first bite

But it was made by Jamaicans and it was love at first bite! More than a decade ago, Herdmanston Lodge was owned by a Jamaican couple and was called The Queenstown Inn. Each Friday they made delicious Jamaican Beef Patties that you had to pre-order at the beginning of the week. And then on Friday afternoons between 3.30 and 4, the very warm, flaky, meat sauced patties would arrive. Everyone stopped working to devour the patties. The Jamaican Beef Patty is very different from the Guyanese Beef Patty but both are equally outstanding and I love them both for different things. The Jamaican Beef Patty is made with a flaky pastry not a short crust pastry, which is what the Guyanese Beef Patty is made with.
