Eddoes doesn’t have to be the mystery food.

Eddoes doesn’t have to be the mystery food.

This recipe post is inspired by a conversation I had with a lady at the grocery store recently. I recall when we first moved to Canada, finding any food closely related to what we enjoyed in the Caribbean was almost impossible.

Gourmet salmon from a can?

Gourmet salmon from a can?

Not sure of this should be classified as a recipe or not, but I do know it’s affectionately known as “bache” or bachelor food among the people I know. “Bache” usually refers to any food that can be cooked (or not) in under 5 minutes… basically something fast. As a youth this was the norm […]

Shredded salad with or without leftover chicken.

This one can work both ways, with or without the chicken so you can enjoy just the same if you’re a vegetarian. Some of you are probably saying that this is just a plain salad, but when you kick-in the bbq  or jerk sauce to the chicken pieces, your taste buds will be asking questions… […]

Hearty Pumpkin, Pigeon Peas and Christophene Soup.

Stew or Soup? In the Caribbean what we call “soup” is usually very hearty and in places like Canada and the US they would be considered “stews”. A great meal in one pot! Last fall I put this one together with the help from my mom (my personal recipe book) over the phone. Her original […]
