Spreading The Culinary Culture Of The Caribbean – St Croix Food and Wine Experience.

It was a cold winter’s night back in December when while doing a “viewing” of a Thai restaurant that was up for sale, my friend turned to me and asked “will you be keeping the Thai menu?” To which I answered NO! The plan is to have a  Caribbean menu. It’s been my dream to […]

Jamaica One Plate At A Time.

Jamaica One Plate At A Time.

Why is it when you return from vacation, you feel so drained that you could use another week or two just to get back into your groove? I’m not one to do the normal tourist thing, especially when I’m in the Caribbean, as I see every island as “home” And as I would do when […]

A Classic Jamaican Jerk Marinade.

I just love the variety of exciting and scrumptious dishes you can find as you work your way up and down the islands that make up the Caribbean. To date I’ve not been to Jamaica, even though my friends who hails from there have  extended several invitations the past few years. Hopefully I can make […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
