Miss Lily’s new line of Jamaican sauces and marinades is now available at Fairway, Gourmet Garage, Dean & DeLuca, Zabar’s, Eli’s, and Foragers (Brooklyn store only) in addition to Miss Lily’s store (132 West Houston Street) and website. Developed by Suzanne Couch, Miss Lily’s Culinary Director and a renowned caterer in Jamaica, the three flavors include Rass Hot Jerk BBQ, Jerk BBQ, and Jerk Marinade.
Allowing home cooks to bring the flavors of Jamaica into their own kitchen or backyard grill, the sauces are incredibly easy to use – just brush onto meats, seafood, or vegetables and grill or bake. The classic Jamaican, all-natural ingredients include scallions, brown sugar, Habanero chilies, onion, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, cumin, Scotch Bonnet peppers, and more. A portion of proceeds go to the Rockhouse Foundation, an organization chaired by Miss Lily’s founder Paul Salmon and designed to support education in Jamaica.
Drawing from the diverse roots of Jamaican cuisine, Miss Lily’s kitchen offers delicacies like jerk chicken, escovitch fish, oxtail and curried goat seasoned with scotch bonnet peppers and fiery jerk spices. In addition to Miss Lily’s Restaurant, a beach shack meets Jamaican diner, Miss Lily’s also includes: Miss Lily’s Café – all the classics of the restaurant menu with an added section of homemade Jamaican patties, Trinidadian rotis, salads/sandwiches, vegetarian options, and sweets; Melvin’s Juice Box – a favorite juice bar in the city from juicing legend Melvin Major, Jr.; and Miss Lily’s Variety Shop – an expertly-curated, West Indian record store, gallery and boutique. The front of Miss Lily’s Variety Shop is home to Miss Lily’s Radio, an internet radio station spinning reggae and other Jamaican jams.
