Ital Cooking

By January 31, 2013

Follow me on:

Rastas have their own code for cooking, known as ital (rhyming with "vital," from which it is derived) cooking.  Like halal and kosher cooking, it has some basis in scripture, although not as much.  Ital cooking centers on good, healthy and unadulterated foods.  It is generally vegetarian, and it rejects preservatives and other additives, although it is recognized that many urban Rastas simply cannot totally avoid such things.
