Chris De La Rosa has united our incredible Caribbean islands through the flavoursome joys of our multi-cultural food. The Vibrant Caribbean Pot cookbook uses witty introductions to give us a personal insight into each of Chris’s classic and fusion recipes.

As you may already know, CaribbeanPot.com was created as a space where I could document the recipes our daughters grew up enjoying. They were about to leave home to further their education, and I wanted them to take our Caribbean kitchen with them. Though we call Canada home, our tiny kitchen is very reflective of the Caribbean… alive with spices, fresh herbs, and delicious sauces. Caribbean recipes are not as well documented as other cultures’ are, and it’s one of the reasons why you’ll hardly ever find a Caribbean recipe book at major book chains. I didn’t want our daughters disconnecting from their Caribbean heritage, and — more importantly — I didn’t want them eating in an unhealthy way.
Along with the goals of having our girls eating well and passing on our culinary traditions, I especially wanted the recipes to be easy to for them to follow — foolproof, in fact. Over the past five years, I’ve shown you, on my Website, how simple it is to create tasty and healthy meals, rich in flavour, and wonderfully appetizing.
And so I decided to write The Vibrant Caribbean Pot — 100 Traditional And Fusion Recipes, Vol 2. For me, this book represents my way of contributing to our culinary history, so nothing gets lost over time. And based on the connection to Caribbean food, this book on traditional Caribbean cooking is the natural evolution of the Website I started all those years ago.
Caribbean cuisine may be new to some of you; for others, it will be a reconnection to their culinary culture. In writing this book, I wanted to address the hundreds of emails I’ve received, and answer the questions from my fans, on…
In The Vibrant Caribbean Pot — 100 Traditional And Fusion Recipes, Vol 2, I will hold you by the hand as we explore the rich and diverse culinary culture of the Caribbean — right in your kitchen. Whether you’re cooking for one, for a family of five (as I do), or simply cooking to impress that special person in your life, you will not fail.
That I promise you.
I also promise to be your guide as we explore the 100 hand-picked recipes I chose for my debut printed Caribbean cookbook. I don’t want you to be scared of or intimidated by the kitchen. Cooking should be fun and stress free… even if you can’t seem to cook anything without setting off the smoke alarm.
Each recipe will have exact ingredients and measurements — not like when my mom would say (in her Trini accent), “ah lil bit of this and a pinch of dat” when I call her to get help with a recipe.
With easy-to-follow instructions, and a stunning photo of every completed dish, you'll be preparing authentic Caribbean specialties in no time!
I’m told I make recipes look easy… and fun, too. Maybe this explains why, only recently, Google and YouTube ranked us in their top 5% of YouTube channels within the cooking category.
My Website and YouTube channels have a global monthly audience of over 1 million people!
In The Vibrant Caribbean Pot — 100 Traditional And Fusion Recipes, Vol 2, not only did I choose 100 of my favorite recipes to share with you, you’ll also find that the recipes represent a cross section of the English, French, Dutch, and Spanish speaking Caribbean. Here’s what you'll find:
I’m very proud to say that the entire Caribbean is represented in this masterful Caribbean cookbook.
…that Caribbean cuisine is influenced by our colonizers (Spanish, English, French, Dutch and Portuguese) as well as African slaves?
Also influential were those who came to replace the slaves as indentured labourers from India and China — and many other immigrants (such as Middle Easterners), who found a new home in the Caribbean.
Plus we have the contributions from our indigenous peoples who showed us how to preserve food before refrigeration was available. Also teaching us how to effectively use local plants and herbs.
Caribbean cuisine is definitely on the rise: global audiences now realize that it’s more than simply jerk chicken, rice and peas, curry goat and roti.

You’re not just buying my Caribbean cookbook… you’re becoming part of the CaribbeanPot.com family!
Chris’s recipes are born from his love of food, but that love was created from generations worth of creativity and skill. It doesn’t surprise me that one of the first words that I encountered on reading this amazing work was “family”. And it is that inter-generational ancient love for all things culinary and Caribbean that peeks through his words and stunning images.
As a fellow foodie, the other word that best describes this work for me is “inspiring”. I understand how much work goes into putting together a single recipe. So, I marvel at Chris’s ability to make putting together and sharing his passion for Caribbean food look so effortless. His warmth and sunny personality encourages us all to fall in love with our kitchens again, and embrace our culture if we are from the Caribbean, or explore the Caribbean through food if we are not!
