Celebrating the ‘History, Culture and Music of the Rastafarians in Ethiopia’

It was the legendary spirit of Bob Marley that magnified the tiny Island of Jamaica to the world, and to this day Bob Marley remains the most celebrated and influential household name in reggae music throughout the world.

When he composed the album ‘Exodus’ in 1977, little did he know it would become the best album of the 20th century as Time magazine ranked it in 1999, recognizing it as the greatest album of all times.

A lot of people rave over the smell of warm apple pie permeating their kitchen.  It’s pretty great, but in a “been there, done that” kind of way.

Let’s be rebels. Roast some garlic instead.  Its smell is equally aromatic but the finished product is much more hip-friendly, especially when we puree it with some cauliflower and turn it into soup.  Now that is just a healthy addiction waiting to happen.  (And it’ll make our kitchens smell like an Italian bistro.  Bet an apple pie can’t do that!)
