U dun know sey a jerk u ago jerk an mi feel good sey u deh pon dat deh platform. Clearly you enjoy the kitchen Ms Hanna so much so that I can safely say you will ensure crush Mayor De Blasio winning streak and bring that trophy back a yard…
Some distraction is needed from the Roc, politics and all the mayhem that is taking place, I say big up uself for taking us on this journey. Once you are a chicken lover, the good ole jerk 9 times out of 10 will be an all-time favourite on any menu. Many of us appreciate and respect the boundaries, cultures, demographics that Reggae music has and continues to cross. Impacting, influencing we can feel a sense of pride that when reggae music is mentioned our Island, Jamaica is the first country you think of. The masters of reggae music were born and bred on the Roc, just look at the choices below. I can safely say those who fell in love with reggae music and became influencers in their own right will attest to be influenced by those in JA.
Lisa just focus pon di jerk chicken and bring home the trophy an nobada mek dem distract u bout plastic rice. A chicken u up deh fi deal wid, deal wid it proper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NY Mayor De Blasio takes up Lisa’s challenge
(Jamaica Observer) Saturday, July 22, 2017 23 Comments
With his city among the most diverse in the world, New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio should have tastes to match.
Tomorrow, de Blasio squares off against Lisa Hanna, Miss World 1993 and Jamaican Member of Parliament, in the Celebrity Quick-Fire Challenge, at the annual Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival.
The event takes place at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens.
The mayor is a two-time champ, having previously won the Dutch Pot Trophy in 2013 and 2014. He defeated actor Leon and Miss Jamaica Universe 2014 Kaci Fennell on those occasions.
According to de Blasio, he has been a fan of jerk before it went mainstream in the ’90s.
“I first tasted jerk food at the Caribbean Parade on Eastern Parkway in 1989, during (David) Dinkins’ mayoral campaign. Favourite jerk I’ve ever had is at Jerk City Restaurant on Utica Avenue in Brooklyn,” he told Jamaica Observer by email.
Elected mayor in 2014, de Blasio is married to Chirlane McCray who has West Indian heritage. A big reggae fan since his college years, he and his wife attended a Bunny Wailer concert at BB King Blues Club and Grill in Times Square last year.
He lists the following as albums he would listen to on a long flight:
The Harder They Come Soundtrack 1973;
Live! Bob Marley and the Wailers, 1975;
Babylon by Bus, Bob Marley, 1978;
Handsworth Revolution, Steel Pulse, 1978;
96 Degrees in The Shade, Third World, 1980;
Live in Essen, Black Uhuru, 1981.
