Chef Roger Mooking recently traveled
to the United States and Jamaica, and returned with tons of photos and
stories about the incredible food culture. We hope you’ll be inspired
to explore different cuisines and exotic ingredients this summer. We’ll
be publishing a new post every Thursday over the summer, so stay tuned
and enjoy Roger’s tenth post below! Make sure to also check out
Roger’s latest solo album, Feedback, available on iTunes.
