You've heard of jerk chicken, jerk pork, but now Jamie Oliver has caused a storm with jerk rice.

The rice is a convenience meal that you're meant to put into the microwave for one minute and then it's ready to serve.

Jerk is a Carribean style of seasoning chicken, pork, beef and even fish, but it's unheard of to "jerk rice"

The term usually refers to chicken, beef or meat that is prepared in a traditional Jamaican style of cooking. A marinade or paste that includes at the very least pimento (allspice) and scotch bonnet peppers, also known as habenero's are key ingredients in the marinade process.
 
The twitter storm about the rice heated up last week when British Labour MP Dawn Butler raised her concerns with Oliver about a jerk rice. 

As Butler's tweet went viral, jerk rice became a hot topic and was then debated on the morning TV show, Good Morning Britain and further on social media

Accusations that Oliver is culturally appropriating rice hasn't died down
