Usain Bolt

The Jamaican sprinter holds the world and Olympic records in the 100 metres, the 200 metres and (along with his teammates) the 4×100 metres relay. He’s also the reigning Olympic champion in these three events, and a five-time world and three-time Olympic gold medallist.

What’s your favourite Jamaican (or Caribbean) food?
Rice and peas, dumpling with chicken or pork

What food/treat/delicacy do you miss the most when you’re away from the region?
The natural seasoning on our food that makes it just delicious. It’s just not the same when I am away.

What Caribbean dish is your specialty?
Ackee and saltfish, you could say, is my specialty.

Do you have memories of your granny or mom making something special for Christmas?
Grandma’s puddings are the best. She still makes them and sends them to Kingston for me. (The typical Jamaican pudding has to have raisins, fruit mixture, sometimes Guinness or a little rum.) Christmas is mostly when more than three meats are prepared…chicken, fish, curried goat…My mom doesn’t eat pork…but pork got in the house somehow, as my Dad and I eat pork.

Where do you go – in Jamaica and abroad – to get the best patty?
The taste of a Juici beef and cheese patty is the best.
