Ever made jerk seasoning from scratch? It's one of the tastiest ways to flavour meats. Spicy and sweet and ambrosially aromatic, Jamaican jerk seasoning can be applied to all sorts of meats and here we baste some baby back ribs with this mouth watering, lip smacking sauce. The pork ribs are served with a delectable coconut rice-this meal is a great one to serve guests too (and yes this is a pushy recipe!).

Every time a new restaurant opens up in Manly our friends Louise and Viggo let us know about it. And the latest opening is Manly Greenhouse. Located on the South Steyne with views of Manly Beach it is a multi level space. On top is a rooftop bar where the greenhouse theme really comes into play. The middle has a grill set to open soon and on the ground level is the Greenhouse restaurant with seating spilling outside with al fresco tables.
