"Allspice is what we call pimento in Jamaica," writes Levi Roots. "The name ‘allspice’ was coined by the British when they arrived and discovered the berry but couldn’t fathom its flavour. Someone said it tasted like all the known spices together and that is how it got its name." It's essential in Caribbean cooking but cooks from Lebanon to Peru and beyond use it to spice up their dishes.
