Yes Mr Levi Roots, the man behind Reggae Reggae sauce and now on BBC two cooking up a storm. My mum arrived in town to get a glimpse of him, but the signing was over. That night also happened to be the night I was to have my first attempt at making patties.I used a bit of Levi's recipe, some of the one from our Caribbean cookbook my mum stole from the library in 1984 and another what do we have.
I ended up making these:Beef, yam and calaloo patties. They tasted nice, not quite right, not enough of a kick and I still believe I should have opted for the cookbooks flaky pastry not Levi's shortcrust. The filling did seem to make a nicer pizza topping the next day, lord-a-mercy!
