  • Levi Roots - Yay or nay?

    Hi All

    Was just wondering whether anyone was a fan (or not) of Levi Roots. I quite like spicy food and he has a book out called 'Spice It Up' - got a good write up on Amazon(.co.uk)

    Any feelings on Mr Roots?

    Thanks!

    I just Googled his name. Here's a pic of him. He's also featured on Wikipedia.org. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levi_Roots

    I'm just willing to bet that he cooks his food way too spicey for me!! Reggae food is often spiced up to the hilt!!!

    According to sources, he's a Jamaican / Reggae musician, TV personality, clebrity chef, businessman and a multi-millionaire. I'd say that he's very famous for his multiple talents.

      Haven't tried any of the recipes (althought I've considered buying the book in question a few times) but his ready meals are amazing. Really flavoursome. They are quite spicy, but people who are really into spice would be disappointed with the ones I eat.

        Sounds like he's a busy guy! I imagine his sauces have a hint of Jerk to them. After my wife and I's trip to Jamaica we got really into Jerk seasoning. Good stuff.

            It isn't 'hot sauce' it's a barbecue sauce, can be used as a marinade or a dip. But with 1.5% scotch bonnet chilli in it it's not exactly going to blow your head off. I mean they are a spicy chilli don't get me wrong, but with such a small quantity I can't see how this sauce can be any spicier than the other products I've already tried.

                Thanks for all the replies everyone!

                I really liked his sauces (although, as I'm not much of a TV person, I didn't know that it had anything to do with Dragon's Den). They even do a 'Reggae Reggae' sandwich at Tesco and Pizza at Pizza Hut (now that's some good partnering/marketing!)

                I don't really know him as a 'house hold' name but thought as his sauces were nice his food might be too. By the looks of things he's still quite an unknown quantity but I do like spicy food so might just give it a go and let you know!

                Thanks again.

                  I had the reggae reggae pizza from Dominos yesterday (partly because I was intrigued because of this thread, partly because it was the veggie pizza with pineapple that I've been waiting my whole life for!) and it was gooood!

                  It was as I suspected, tasty hot not spicy for the sake of it hot. I would deffo buy the sauce in the future for using with other things.

                  As for the book I think I might have a better look at it now.

                    I don't think that I've had any Reggae cuisine that I can remember. Unless haitian cooking is Reggae as well. I guess that I could cook it if I really were to give it a try.

                    I've had Haitian cooking though.

                    A former coworker who is now a friend of mine who IS Haitian, has been offering me some of his lunch, and he, also, makes his dishes kind of spicy. But I didn't complain, because it's not right to complain about something being offered to me. It's the thought that counts!

                    He really is a nice person!! He invited me over to his house for the Fourth of July, so I'm making something to bring over so that he can try out MY cooking.
