  • - Then they go real fast, hah ah,
  • and then he do it.
  • Hey friends, it's Karamo from Netflix's Queer Eye.
  • - And I'm his son, Jason Brown,
  • also known as Rachel side burns.
  • - And today, we are cooking a traditional Jamaican dish
  • called Ackee and Saltfish, with a side of Bammy.
  • It's a Jamaican dish.
  • - Yeah, man.
  • - Get your tummy right and nice.
  • So what I love about ackee and saltfish
  • is that it reminds me of home.
  • So I just remember my grandmother and my grandfather
  • cooking ackee and saltfish on Sunday mornings
  • and then cutting up the bammy.
  • And just like all of the family coming together
  • and us just eating traditional Jamaican dishes.
  • I mean in my household, my father actually used cooking
  • as a way to bond with me.
  • And it's also a way that I use to bond with my son.
  • - [Jason] I'll be honest, early on we were
  • very much hands on in the kitchen.
  • My dad used to embed in my head
  • that I need to know how to cook as a man.
  • So he taught me how to cook chicken, rice,
  • spaghetti, pastas, all the things
  • (laughter).
  • - I'm just saying, all right.
  • Men cook, women cook, everyone should be cooking.
  • It's a great way to talk, try new things,
  • to be curious about life.
  • And that's what I love about food.
  • All right, so the thing is about Jason and I,
  • is that when you cook,
  • sometimes you gotta take a little dance break.
  • It starts with the hands.
  • (snapping)
  • You gotta come in, you gotta come in closer!
  • Eh! Eh! Ehhh!
  • Then you go real fast, huh ah,
  • and then he do it, okay!
  • Then you ed nah, now we dance ah.
  • All right now back to cooking.
  • So right now the bammy looks really plain.
  • And that's why we're gonna be adding in coconut milk
  • which gives it a really robust, sweet flavor
  • that just is so, mmm!
  • You can't wait to bite into it.
  • It actually balances out all the rich flavors
  • of the ackee and the vegetables.
  • So you know for me Pride month is a
  • very important, special month
  • because it's where I started to find
  • the confidence in myself as a gay man.
  • And then as I had a son,
  • it was really important for him to understand that
  • it was great for you to be a part of the community
  • to see the strength and the beauty of the LGBTQI community.
  • Because I think a lot of times parents are afraid
  • to introduce their children to
  • their community, their surroundings.
  • But I think it helps them to grow and be better.
  • - [Jason] For me Pride definitely is one of the best times
  • that I've ever possibly had in the summertime.
  • You know we live it up, we honestly have a good time,
  • and we celebrate the pride that we all have,
  • for the community.
  • - [Karamo] So this is where you start
  • to break up the saltfish.
  • But you know what, real cooks, we use our hands.
  • Get rid of the forks, just get your hands in there.
  • That's what real cooks do.
  • Just start griming it up,
  • you start to feel the texture of the fish,
  • you start to feel like you're infused with the food.
  • - [Jason] And this is my favorite part actually,
  • when we're stirring in the red peppers,
  • the green peppers, the onions, the ackee,
  • everything looks so beautiful right now.
  • - [Karamo] See this is the part about Jamaican dishes
  • that I love is that they incorporate so many fresh
  • vegetables that you get to see the color
  • and it smells so fragrant,
  • I mean just whiff that in son, whiff it in.
  • You smell it?
  • Right, smells good.
  • - [Jason] Mmm! - [Karamo] I know.
  • SO Jason and I have a brand new book coming out
  • called I am Perfectly Designed.
  • This book is a children's book, it's a picture book,
  • but it's also for adults because as we know
  • whether you're two, 20 or 220,
  • I don't know anybody that age but I was trying
  • to figure out how to go in sequence,
  • we all have issues with our self esteem
  • where we're like "I don't feel good about myself today,
  • "I feel like someone's better than me"
  • or you start comparing yourself,
  • and this book is to teach all of us,
  • and remind all of us that we are perfectly designed.
  • - [Jason] Basically, it just always taught me
  • to be myself, you know and that's kind of the main point
  • of this whole book,
  • just for everybody to know that themselves,
  • naturally is perfect.
  • - [Karamo] We have everything we need friends
  • to create the life we want,
  • you just gotta believe in yourself.
  • - It's all in you.
  • (laughter)
  • - [Karamo] You ready to try the dish?
  • - [Jason] I am so ready, so
  • are you, oh you just went straight in for it, okay.
  • - Yeah, it's so delicious.
  • You have no idea.
  • You can taste every bit of the ackee,
  • you can taste sah fish, salt fish if you're an American,
  • the sah fish if you're Jamaican.
  • As my son continues to eat,
  • I just want to remind everyone
  • to check out our brand new book
  • I am Perfectly Designed,
  • coming out in the fall.
  • And also I want to encourage everyone
  • to try different foods from different cultures.
  • Be curious, there's so many things out there
  • that you're just going to love to try
  • but you gotta be curious enough to go after it.
  • Start with this dish,
  • start with something new during Pride month,
  • trust me you will not be disappointed.
  • Happy Pride friends.
  • - Happy Pride.
  • - Ohh, yes.
  • (gentle music)
