How To Make The Most Refreshing Mauby Drink.

How To Make The Most Refreshing Mauby Drink.

  Mauby is one of those classic refreshing drinks you’ll find throughout the Caribbean. Other than freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice, we’d have a tall glass of mauby with our beloved “Sunday Lunch”. As I’ve  mentioned before, the biggest meal of the week in the Caribbean is usually the Sunday lunch, so it’s one […]

A Refreshing Spiced Caribbean Sorrel Drink.

A Refreshing Spiced Caribbean Sorrel Drink.

When our daughters were younger I remember that whenever anyone was coming to visit from Trinidad and Tobago they always had a few bottles of Sorrel Shandy in their suitcase for them. Especially Tehya, who felt grown-up drinking from a bottle which looked similar to a beer bottle. My memories of sorrel (the drink and […]

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 […]

Peanut Punch For Two.

Peanut Punch For Two.

There’s been a number of requests for a peanut punch recipe, so I caved in today and finally got around to putting one together. My dad who’s one of my go-to people when I’ve never made something before, is wintering in the Caribbean so this recipe cost me a long distance call. And though his […]

Rich and creamy Punch-de-Creme.

Christmas for me growing up in the Caribbean was not as much about gifts and the shopping madness that seems to take over the spirit of the season in North America. It was more about food, family and fun times. The lovely aroma you’d get Christmas eve all the way past Boxing day as homes […]

Let’s put some juicy watermelon to some good use.

This time of the year every grocery flyer / circular you receive in the mail normally contains amazing deals on seedless watermelons. But growing up on the islands we were not accustomed to getting seedless anything… we had to old-school it and spit out the seeds. I remember hearing the old folks say that we […]

An energizing mango smoothie with a tinge of orange juice.

Looking back at my childhood it puzzles me as to what was our facination with imported fruits like apples, pears and grapes? It’s funny how when you move away from home you crave the things you took for granted. Like off-the-tree mangoes and oranges. Mangoes with such names as Julie, long, hog, dou dous (sp), […]

Were we making ceviche all along?

I think I was about 9 years old the very first time I had the opportunity to sample one of the Friday night rituals in Marabella. A small town, known for it’s vibrant weekend market and the hub for oil workers after work on a Friday evening. That ritual being “oyster cocktails”. A spicy drink […]

The Old Man and his Mojito.

The Old Man and his Mojito.

It must have been about 8 years ago, we were doing a walking tour of Havana (still remember all the people trying to sell us Cohiba cigars) when our guide, full of excitement said…” I’m about to take you for a drink in a very special place”. Turns out it was the old watering hole […]

What on the beach?

What on the beach?

The first time I heard the name of this drink I couldn’t help but think..”what a rude sounding drink”. Seems like we’re still in winter, even though spring was officially announced back in March. So what do I do on a gloomy day that sucks the life out of you? I break out the boxes […]
