The use of the word “jerk” in culinary terms refers to a spicy jamaican seasoning used to marinate meat, seafood or poultry before grilling or roasting it. While each cook has his or her particular favourite combination of spices, jerk almost always contains allspice, thyme and chilli. Piri piri is an Afro-Portuguese hot sauce made from a tiny red chilli of the same name, ground with ginger, garlic, oil and various herbs.
