JAMAICAN PATTIES- the search continues for homemade

opinionatedchef | May 13, 2006 03:08 AM

what a drag- the patties at camie's in cambridge are the same patties served in all the jamaican places i have tried in new england. they are made by a n.j./n.y.c. factory whose name escapes me.(Tower? maybe). you can always tell them by their stamped/cut-out distinctly YELLOW tough thick pastry and the pureed nature of the filling.you can buy big boxes of them at restaurant depot in chelsea. it seems NO jamaican place in boston makes their own patties (except i heard recently that there IS one place(on blue hill ave i think)that makes its own. these factory- made patties can be found at camie's, the jam. place on huron ave, the jamaican place on huntington ave a few blocks away from the mfa,AND that jamaican place in worcester(even though she told me she made them herself tsk tsk...). such a shame. there's a place in phila. that makes heavenly ones and i'm going to bring back ALOT of them if i get down there again!
