I feel that, although change is really hard and can be daunting, a lot of the time it is for the best as it makes room for new growth.

The most famous dish made with this seasoning is Jamaican jerk chicken which requires quite a lot of preparation and is best cooked outdoors in a barrel type of grill. The good thing is that if you like spicy food, you can marinade in jerk seasoning almost anything, and it will taste great. It is great with chicken breast or fish but also vegan and vegetarian options such as tofu or meat alternatives. It will taste delicious, I promise.

During the lockdown, I used to do a daily 15-minute watercolour practice, and it felt great. I’m trying to return to this, even if not every day. I try to find a couple of minutes to myself to relax and watch the pigment spread on the paper.
