Pastelles A Caribbean Christmas Tradition.

Pastelles A Caribbean Christmas Tradition.

Growing up on the islands pastelles were not on our hit-list for Christmas, as it wasn’t something made by our mom or dad. I do recall the lady who lived a couple houses across from us had a part time job around the holiday season where she assisted in making pastelles by the hundreds and […]

Enticing Garlic Pork At Christmas.

Enticing Garlic Pork At Christmas.

While it’s common in Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago to see garlic pork served on Christmas morning and during the holiday season, that was not the case in our home. Pork dishes did make it to the table, but it was stewed, baked in the oven, grilled and even fried, but no garlic pork as […]

The Simplicity And Splendor of Dasheen.

Here’s a great way to combine two classic Caribbean recipes to form a mouth-watering delight. Usually this is made with left over stewed pork which is added the final minutes of cooking pak choi, but this approach will see you stew the pork first and then add the diced pak choi the final 10 minutes […]
