The Ultimate Plantain Frittata.

With all the requests I've been getting for more breakfast / brunch type recipes, I thought I'd share a classic Plantain Frittata with you. While not something you'd traditionally see in the Caribbean, I came up with this recipe a few years ago when I had friends visiting for the weekend. The idea behind this frittata was to include 3 things we're passionate about (ingredients) in the Caribbean... Salted Cod, Fresh Herbs and Ripe Plantains. You can be as creative as you want in your version.

The Ultimate Curry Corn Recipe.

As a kid growing up on the islands, I can't remember mom ever making curry corn. And while it's quite popular in Trinidad and Tobago and some of the other islands of the Caribbean today, I only started hearing about it about this dish a few years now. While in Trinidad a few days ago my neighbor gave me a sample of her version to try and while it was very tasty, it wasn't 'my' version. Which I'm about to share with you today. Yes, those of you requesting more vegetarian / vegan recipes will luv this one.

Classic Caribbean Beef Pelau.

During those cold and nasty winter days in January and February I always try to add a little Caribbean sunshine in our home/kitchen in Canada, with a big pot of bubbling Pelau. A delicious one pot dish packed with ingredients and flavors of the Caribbean which immediately takes me back to my childhood on the islands. However back then it was the dish of choice (usually the Chicken version) for those days at the beach.

Island style Curry Pork Recipe.

02 October 2014

Curry wasn’t cooked often in our home when we were growing up (dad was not a fan of curry), especially pork. Mom’s go-to recipe when it came to pork was either stewed (stewed pork recipe) or roasted in the oven. When I moved to Canada and started living with my aunt (mentioned her in my cookbook), […]

Traditional Caribbean Chicken Foot Soup Recipe.

Traditional Caribbean Chicken Foot Soup Recipe.

26 September 2014

It’s one of those soups you really have to try before passing judgement. Like so many traditional dishes from the Caribbean (and globally), you’ll find people will be cautious and at times have negative comments, even though they fail to give it a try. You’ll notice that in the Caribbean we tend to use most of […]

15 September 2014

This recipe takes me back to a time when I was in my early teens and I’d go to watch movies on the weekend in San Fernando (Trinidad) with my bother and our dad. There was a Chinese restaurant on Mucurapo Street where we’d usually end up as I’ve had a weakness for Chinese food […]

Jamaican Callaloo With Shrimp.

Jamaican Callaloo With Shrimp.

12 September 2014

As I’ve discussed in my Cookbook, there’s much debate in the Caribbean when it comes to callaloo. In the southern Caribbean it’s a delicious soup-like dish made with young dasheen bush leaves, flavored with crabs (for the most part) and simmered in coconut milk. However in Jamaica, callaloo is the bush or plant (amaranth) which is […]

Cooking Collard Greens The Caribbean Way.

Cooking Collard Greens The Caribbean Way.

06 September 2014

Collard Green or collards is not native to the Caribbean, so it’s not something we would refer to as being traditional. However, with our love for dasheen bush, spinach, Jamaican callaloo (chorai), Bok Choi and just about every other green there is, it’s natural that collards will find a loving home in my kitchen. If I […]

Zesty Garlic Flavored Avocado Yogurt Dip.

Zesty Garlic Flavored Avocado Yogurt Dip.

17 August 2014

As I’ve indicated in the past, I’m addicted to avocados or zabouca and/or pear as it’s also known in the Caribbean. However the variety of avocado grown in the Caribbean is much different than the ones you’d get from California, Mexico and other Central American countries. Ours are much bigger, different texture (less creamy and more cheese […]

Taro With Stewed Saltfish Caribbean Comfort Food.

Taro With Stewed Saltfish Caribbean Comfort Food.

12 August 2014

After seeing the price of dasheen at the market, I opted for the much cheaper taro as I had a craving for what we call ground provisions, in the Caribbean. Dasheen, yams, eddoes, sweet potato and cassava all fall under the ‘ground provisions’ umbrella – also known as ‘food’ in Jamaica. The taro is very similar […]

The Ultimate Curry Oxtail Recipe.

The Ultimate Curry Oxtail Recipe.

08 August 2014

Looks interesting, but I’ve never heard of ‘Curry Oxtails’… a comment left after I posted a pic of this “Ultimate Curry Oxtails” on the facebook fan page earlier today.  With the natural toughness and sort of gamy finish of oxtails, it would be a natural fit for cooking in a rich curry sauce. The bones will […]
