From Caribbean Cooking by John DeMers. He says....... Mrs. Mullings (nobody seems to call this wonderful woman by a first name) used to be Erroll Flynn's private cook when he hung out in Port Antonio, Jamaica. Though she says his favorite breakfast was raw dolphin on the dock and his favorite lunch was virtually any alcoholic liquid, she occasionally sneaked in her amazing pork chops. They are now served at her Port Antonio inn, DeMontevin Lodge.
