Day 83 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Eat Bun and Cheese: An Easter Tradition

Easter Bun and Cheese
Written by Staff Writer

Jamaica has many Easter traditions, but one of the most popular involves an evolution of the Hot Cross Bun, a food traced by some to a Saxon honoring of the goddess Eostre. Jamaica’s unique take on the delicacy is a large, dense bun filled with fruit and shaped like a bread loaf. This is a meal in itself, particularly when it is eaten with  type of processed cheese with a cheddar-like taste that comes in a tin; in fact, it’s called “tin cheese” and it is an important part of the bun-and-cheese Easter tradition. Eater together, the hearty Jamaican bun and cheese are a food pairing made in heaven.
