Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, we are working hard to restock this for you.

Clear and fully explained recipes with over 200 stunning full colour photographs and supporting illustrations.

Including over 250 classic Jamaican Balmyard herbal remedies with local and international botanical names for plant identification.

Tonic foods, herbs, and roots are an integral part of Jamaican culture, almost every Jamaican has had Irish moss, carrot juice, or stout punch, the three most well known ‘family tonics’. This book contains most of the traditional food and drink tonics used in Jamaica, as well as the key roots used in bottled ‘man tonic’ preparations bought over the counter.

Add to this the pumping beat of the Jamaican dancehall culture with its iconic sexual symbols of the ‘talwah’ or ‘super-macho’ and the ‘superwoman’, both wanting to ‘perform’ with style and flare, and you have perhaps the most sophisticated and extensive tonic taking culture in the world.
