In the year 2012 I made the conscious decision to migrate from Jamaica. While it was a hard decision to make I knew that it was what was needed to be done, given the limited opportunities for growth that I had access to.
Upon arrival to the United States of America, one of the biggest struggles I had to deal with was adapting the American cuisine. This made it difficult for me when I started dating my husband as I was always leaving the restaurant without having consumed most of the meal. Life in Jamaica meant 3 cooked meals, nicely seasoned and a flavor profile unique to the soils of Jamaica.
Hence, whenever I get homesick, my first statement to David is usually "I need to go home", home being Jamaica. Even though he gets more excited than I do to visit home and get grandma's cooking, I know many persons living away from home, do not have the flexibility to go home as often as they would like to for numerous reasons.
MoJamaican, through providing snacks, seasonings and spices, thrives to help ease that homesickness that many feel when they are feeling for that touch of Jamaica on their palates. It is hoped that even though there is no place like home, that you, our customers are able to create your favorite meals and enjoy it in your new place of residence until you have the opportunity to go home and have the family chef, who is almost always your grandma, prepare your favorite meal.
A part of MoJamaican that is dedicated to meal recreation is Meal Preparation. With each purchase is a recipe that is mailed to you, but most importantly, it has all the seasonings you will need to recreate the meal. The products are authentic to Jamaica and by trusted brands in Jamaica such as Grace Kennedy, Lasco, Easispice among others. The recipe is especially for those who have never made the meal for themselves and are wanting to recreate the Jamaican delicacy.
