The Ultimate Curry Oxtail Recipe.

Looks interesting, but I’ve never heard of ‘Curry Oxtails’… a comment left after I posted a pic of this “Ultimate Curry Oxtails” on the facebook fan page earlier today.  With the natural toughness and sort of gamy finish of oxtails, it would be a natural fit for cooking in a rich curry sauce. The bones will […]

Vegetarian Stir Fry Bodi (yard beans) With Cashews.

As a young fella on the islands, my brother and I usually helped mom with the kitchen garden after school and on the weekends. I enjoyed seeing plants go from seeds to actually bearing fruit and harvest time was usually my favorite. Picking bodi (yard beans) off the bush (grows on a vine-like bush) was like a […]

Zesty Garlic Flavored Avocado Yogurt Dip.

Zesty Garlic Flavored Avocado Yogurt Dip.

17 August 2014

As I’ve indicated in the past, I’m addicted to avocados or zabouca and/or pear as it’s also known in the Caribbean. However the variety of avocado grown in the Caribbean is much different than the ones you’d get from California, Mexico and other Central American countries. Ours are much bigger, different texture (less creamy and more cheese […]

Taro With Stewed Saltfish Caribbean Comfort Food.

Taro With Stewed Saltfish Caribbean Comfort Food.

12 August 2014

After seeing the price of dasheen at the market, I opted for the much cheaper taro as I had a craving for what we call ground provisions, in the Caribbean. Dasheen, yams, eddoes, sweet potato and cassava all fall under the ‘ground provisions’ umbrella – also known as ‘food’ in Jamaica. The taro is very similar […]

How To Make Rum And Raisin Ice Cream.

22 July 2014

Whenever we would have relatives come over for the classic Caribbean Sunday lunch, our dad would always dust out his old crank-ice cream pail and all US kids knew we were in for a delightful treat. I’m yet to find an ice cream which even comes close to Joe’s creamy coconut ice cream. Funny how […]

Classic Caribbean Banana Punch (banana smoothie).

18 July 2014

What’s a month of grilling without a refreshing dessert in a glass? There’s no better way to start (or finish) the day on those hot summer days, than a refreshing glass of banana punch. I guess for most people outside the Caribbean this would be called a ‘shake’ or smoothie, but as with all thick […]

I do hope you’re enjoying this year’s installment of July’s Month Of Grilling as I am. The heat, smoke and raw flame of the grill excites me. Maybe it brings out the primitive instincts in me (caveman)? I’m a huge fan of the orange chicken you’ll find at Chinese restaurants… battered chicken pieces fried then […]

How To Make Caribbean Chicken Foot Souse.

How To Make Caribbean Chicken Foot Souse.

17 June 2014

In the Caribbean we find  (delicious) ways to use just about every part of the animal (and bird).. dishes you must try before passing judgement. Souse is traditionally made with pig trotters, ears and snouts when I was growing up on the islands.  However, chicken feet are also used, especially by people who don’t dine with […]

Eddoes With Leftover Trinbago Stewed Pork.

08 June 2014

Whenever I make stewed pork (Trinidad style stewed pork) I purposely make extra so I have leftovers for adding to other dishes.. like this one using eddoes. As I’ve mentioned before I’m a ‘country’ boy at heart, so ground provisions (starchy root type vegetables) are a huge part of my diet (though expensive to buy […]

If you’re familiar with what we call ‘chow’ in the southern Caribbean, you’ll see the same basic principles used in this recipe. “Chow’ is basically a sort of spicy pickle, usually made from a tart fruit like mango, plum, pineapple and when these fruits are not in season cucumber can also be used.

If you’re concerned about the supposed heat or spiciness of Caribbean food, know that you can always adjust the amount of pepper and spices you use to your personal liking.

The Ultimate Fried Chicken Wings Recipe.

01 May 2014

I love me some chicken wings, but I’ve come to accept that most restaurants in North America do them “Buffalo” style. Which basically means… fried crisp then tossed in a vinegar based hot sauce. Vinegar is one of those ingredients you won’t see being used much in the Caribbean, unless it’s for an escovitch sauce […]
