Description

In 1836, Howe Peter Browne, 2nd Marquess of Sligo, returned to Westport, Ireland, taking with him memories of the spicy and exotic dishes he had been served during his governship of Jamaica.

Sligo, himself, was among the first to free his slaves on his Jamaican estate - Kelly's and Cocoa Walks estates- which he had inherited from his ancestors, the Kellys and Brownes of Ireland; Jamaican settlers from the late 1600s. The Brownes became wealthy and were numbered among the respected members of the plantocracy who were famous for their entertaining and the variety of food they served. In Jamaica, their name has always been pronounced "Browney." Specially selected recipes from his treasure trove are now being prepared and bottled for Busha Browne's Company in Jamaica to be enjoyed today as much as they were over 200 years ago.
