Charleston Caribbean Jerk Festival this Weekend

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, July 16, 2014

If you live in an apartment in Charleston, SC there is a new way to celebrate Caribbean food, culture and music.

The inaugural Charleston Caribbean Jerk Festival runs Saturday at the Charleston Visitor Center Bus Shed on Meeting Street from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m.

Caribbean food vendors from across the southeast are scheduled to participate in Best Jerk Recipe contests and will also compete for the title of Top Jerk Chef 2014, event spokesman Keith Heyward says. Reggae Grill Caribbean Cuisine, Roti Rolls, Captain Blacks Barbecue and Caribe Lime are among the vendors scheduled to compete.

Patrons will receive coins to "vote" for their favorite food vendors and will be able to purchase additional coins, with all of the proceeds going to charity, Heyward says.

Jerk refers to a cooking style native to Jamaica in which pork and chicken are marinated are rubbed with hot spice mixtures. Some believe the style of cooking originated in Africa before being adapted to local tastes.

Tickets are $10 in advance. For a complete list of ticket sales locations, visithttp://www.chsjerkfest.com.
