This delicious bread is really indescribable. It is made from a dough not unlike biscuit dough (but containing corn meal) and rolled into an elongated shape and deep-fat fried (though at Whitfield Hall it was pan-fried because of the limited amount of oil available). Festival was created by a fisherman from Braeton, St. Catherine, Jamaica. His delicious Jamaican-style fried pastry was inspired by a combination of Indian roti and Jamaican johnny cake. He tested his creation at Hellshire Beach, a popular haunt for most Kingston-area dwellers. It is said that this fisherman named his discovery “Festival” because “Festival nice, just like Festival”. He was right. Festival served Hellshire-style with fried fish has become a delicious and legendary combination.
