Christmas ham is a must in just about every pork eating home in the Caribbean. There are many who choose not to dine in the swine, but I refuse to be prejudice against this wonderful meat, so you know I had to share this wicked recipe. I fondly recall the ham sandwiches our mom would […]

Jerk Pork Sliders

Jerk Pork Sliders

Traditionalists can be very picky when it comes to any food labelled as being ‘jerked’, as they feel any jerked meat must be done over pimento wood. Though I agree that there’s the unique taste from the smoke off the pimento wood… but when you can’t source the actual pimento wood you must rely on […]

BBQ Pig Tails.

BBQ Pig Tails.

BBQ Pig Tails is not one of the more glamorous dishes to come out of the Caribbean and to be honest the first time I saw this being grilled in Barbados a few years back, I was a bit apprehensive. Don’t get me wrong, I loved salted pig tails in soups and stewed,  but I […]

Pastelles A Caribbean Christmas Tradition.

The Simplicity And Splendor of Dasheen.

People are very interested in learning more about the “strange” foods which now occupy space on the shelves… name, where it comes from, how do […]
