  “A delicious hybrid of Asian and Caribbean food! Classic jerk flavours work really well with the sweet potato and chicken, combined with the Asian stir fry mix in a spring roll format. Jerk spice has a lovely slow build of heat. Filo pastry is an amazingly versatile and underused ingredient which you can use to top pies, make samosas or for a spring roll in this instance. It’s so quick and easy to use and has a lovely crisp texture. The ready-to-use pickled onions are a great time-saver!” Paul Tunnicliffe, Culinary Development Chef
