Truly Scratch Made—Our ice cream is made from the highest quality whole ingredients. Most ice cream shops use pre-made mixes that have gums, stabilizers and pre-packaged ratios of sugar and dairy. These are fine short-cuts to making good ice cream but Revibe believes that you lose control of the flavor profiles and clean-palate feel when you turn to outside mixes and gums. Here our chefs focus on quality from start to finish and balance flavors that make a difference in every scoop.
Jamaican food diversity and complexity is due to many international influences. These include contributions from British, Chinese, Dutch, French, East Indian, Portuguese, Spanish and West African culinary traditions.
Spanish and West African Influence—The Spanish arrived in 1509 and drove out the Native Arawaks who were the original inhabitants of the island. Many Slaves arrived with the Spanish who brought their spices, recipes and culinary techniques from West Africa. Additionally, the Spanish Jews contributed their unique dishes including Escoveitch Fish.
English Influence—In 1655, the English fought and won the island from the Spanish, who brought further European influence to the island. Sugar Plantations and slavery transformed the island. Many Jamaican culinary creations come with European influences like the Jamaican Patty which evolved from the English Pastie and the Spanish Empanada.
Chinese and East Indian Influence—Immigrant laborers from China and East India began to come to Jamaica when slavery was abolished in 1834 and brought with them new spices that were blended with others already present on the island. Of course, this included lots of curries which have distinct Chinese, Indian, Thai and other influences to create a wonderful eclectic balance.
African Influence—Jerk originated from the Cormantee Tribes in Africa and was brought to Jamaica by slaves. These slaves transformed this practice of smoking many of the meats, fish and vegetables that surrounded them on the island.
Rastafarian Influence—Rasta influence can be felt throughout the cuisine as seen in the balance of textures, spices and focus on healthful outcomes. Ital Cuisine formed from the strict Rastafarian dietary guidelines for eating healthy and at peace.
