MorningCalm Magazine (Korean Air): One Patty, One Love

I’m excited to share that my article and photographs on Jamaica’s famous patty are now in the June issue of MorningCalm, Korean Air’s in-flight magazine.

Titled “One Patty, One Love,” you can view my piece from pages 94-99 (Street Foods section). Or you can view the PDF copy.

It was one of my most fun assignments to date, which included flying to Jamaica in May–one week after I’d just returned from there and just one week before my big trip to New Zealand–to research my story, do the photo shoot and piece it all together.

In the coming weeks, I’ll share more images that didn’t make the piece (due to space) and behind the scenes stories–from learning how to make a patty from scratch with Miss Sonia to capturing the people and scenes that shaped my article.

I am super grateful to Jamaica’s wonderful food experts–whether TV personalities, chefs or the neighborhood patty icons–for making time during their Easter holiday weekend to assist me. They have incredible spirit, a reminder of why I love Jamaica.

I hope you enjoy the read and the photos, and please feel free to share with fellow Jamaica and patty lovers around the world.
