Product Details


“Adrian’s cooking is that which mixes perfectly with a tropical wind or an urban setting. His culinary choices are a blend of locally relevant ingredients and his personal heritage, and the result is a signature combination that is all his own. His cooking is a pure gift—and this cookbook can extend his vision of the art of cooking even further.”

“Chef Adrian Forte is an absolute force of deliciousness, and this new collection of recipes is a triumph. Jam-packed with bold flavors, exciting and approachable recipes, and Adrian’s unique style, Yawd deserves a permanent home in every cook’s kitchen.”

“I first met Adrian a few years back, while he was manning the jerk pit at his then-restaurant in Toronto’s Little Italy. His passion and attention to detail for Caribbean cuisine has continued to flourish ever since, and now, with Yawd, it can extend well beyond the walls of his kitchen. A few pages in, I guarantee you’ll be feeling that same passion and booking a trip to your favorite island getaway!”

“Bless the hands and sweat of Adrian’s grandmother for being his inspiration, and starting him off on the feels-good-to-read culinary journey you’ll find in Yawd. I have had the honor and pleasure to cook with Adrian and taste some of his food—it’s real, honest, and true to his experience as an African in the diaspora with deep roots in Jamaica.”

“Having been lucky enough to taste Adrian’s cooking, I know Yawd is sure to become a staple in my kitchen. With dishes like Jerk-Marinated Chicken Coq au Vin, Oxtail Gnocchi, and Brown Sugar & Tamarind Cinnamon Rolls, his approachable style of modern Afro-Caribbean cuisine will bring vibrant, amazing flavors to my table and yours.”
