Regarding The Food Programme
27 April 2014

How on earth can the BBC do a programme about Jamaican/Caribbean food in Bristol and NOT even mention Turtle Bay? Even a cursory glance at Tripadvisor will tell you that this is a much-loved and very succesful Caribbean restaurant in the heart of Bristol city centre where Jamaican dishes (Jerk Chicken, Goat Curry, Rice & Peas, etc, etc) are the mainstay of a fantastic menu that spans the whole Caribbean. Approximately 2,500 people eat Carribbean food here every week, and that’s because of the restaurant’s reputation for amazing Caribbean cooking! The only conclusion can be that either the programme was not properly researched OR the presentation of “Jamaican food in Bristol” was partial/selective/disingenuous. Whichever of those two reasons is the case, it is shameful, and another terrible reflection on the BBC’s standards of journalism. At the end of the programme the presenter says he should “hand back his Food Lover’s Licence” for not having known anything about Caribbean food even though it is available right on his door-step! Perhaps he should hand-back his presenter’s badge as well.
