We’ve partnered with Chef Solomon Johnson of Oakland’s Pan African soul food concept, The Bussdown, to release the Cali Jerk Smoke Spice Tribe blend. They serve traditional food in untraditional ways and this jerk is their signature. Read more in the Forbes feature Oakland’s The Bussdown Brings Creative Pan African Soul Food Mainstream.
This exclusive blend is inspired by Chef Johnson’s family barbecues and has a smoke aroma reminiscent of roadside jerk shacks peppered throughout Jamaica. With notes of habanero, cinnamon and pimento, it’s rich in both flavor and history. You can also try this blend on the Square Pie Guys Yardbird Pizza in collaboration with The Bussdown, at both their San Francisco and Oakland locations.
Watch Chef Solomon Johnson, also known as Chef Swoop, compete on the Food Network’s Chopped 420, the first-ever cannabis episode airing on April 20th, 2021 on Discovery Plus.
