Mother In Law As A Condiment?

Mother In Law As A Condiment?

My first encounter with “Mother In Law” was about 7 years ago when we had some relatives here on vacation during that summer, from Trinidad. My aunt had a huge pot of pelau bubbling in the back yard (love cooking in the outdoors during the warm months) and my other aunt who was visiting, raved […]

Ground Provisions Exposed.

Ground Provisions Exposed.

In this post I’ll attempt to explain what “Ground Provisions” are, the part it plays in Caribbean cuisine and a simple recipe for preparing everyday ground provisions. In previous recipes I’ve shared, I’ve commented on using ground provisions and over time I’ve come to realize that I had left my readers a bit confused when […]

A Zesty Souse Recipe Inspired By A Cure For Hangovers.

A Zesty Souse Recipe Inspired By A Cure For Hangovers.

I’m not much of a drinker, though I do enjoy a good Scotch ever so often and I do appreciate a Guinness or two when I’m on the islands (stronger than the ones we get here in North America). So having to deal with hangovers is something that’s completely foreign to me. I recall my […]

Eggs In a Classic Curry Sauce.

Eggs In a Classic Curry Sauce.

This is really known as “curry eggs” and when potato is added it’s called “curry eggs and aloo”, but I just had to give it a more dignified name. For those of you who’ve never had this, you’re probably debating the use of eggs in a curry, but trust me – it’s wonderful. After posting […]

Extreme Caribbean Pickled Peppers.

Extreme Caribbean Pickled Peppers.

I grew up calling this cut-up pepper sauce, but I guess a better description for it would be pickled peppers since it resembles many of the pickled items I’ve seen in the grocery stores in North America. My mom would make this one exclusively with lime juice (no vinegar) and she would allow it to […]

An Ambrosial Pepper Sauce Recipe.

An Ambrosial Pepper Sauce Recipe.

It’s been a sticky summer with just about everyday being extremely hot and humid, but I’m not complaining except for the havoc all this heat is doing to my habanero plants. If you’re connected to the Facebook Fan Group, you’d know that a few weeks back I was seeking advice on what to do with […]

Cassava boiled and refried with salted cod.

Cassava boiled and refried with salted cod.

I wasn’t a huge fan of cassava growing up and even today it’s a last resort type of ground provision for me (when I can’t source dasheen, yam and/or eddoes). I find it a bit overly bland, so when I do cook it I try to infuse some added flavour with salted cod bits and […]

Yup! there’s a new addition to the “ultimate” family [ Ultimate Curry Chicken | Ultimate Stew Chicken | Ultimate Curry Goat ]. But I must take a moment to say special thanks for all the wonderful emails, Facebook messages and comments I received yesterday, for my birthday (real love shown).
