Fruity Passion Fruit Pepper Sauce.

With my love for peppersauce (hot sauce) I'm always challenging myself to find different flavors to compliment the scorching heat of our beloved Scotch Bonnet Peppers, to add balance, depth and a unique finish. While this peppersauce is fiery, the fruity undertones of the passion fruit makes it very tasty and bearable for those of you who are not into pure heat! My mom like many from her generation, will argue that when making a 'good' peppersauce, there's no room for fruit. However with the success I've had with the 10 + fruity pepper sauces I've shared on here, that mindset can be challenged.

Ultimate Jerk Turkey + Simple Gluten Free Gravy.

"Chris we want ah Jerk Turkey recipe.. tired of boring oven roasted turkey" That was the DM I received on Twitter a couple weeks back.. even before I was thinking about doing this Christmas Special. I'm not a huge fan of turkey as I find the meat boring, especially when you think about the cost of it and the time it takes to get good results. My goal with this recipe is to show you how simple it is to make a tasty jerk oven roasted turkey, using a 'cheap' turkey and in much less time than the traditional method used for roasting turkey.

Amazing Sorfran Rice [Vegan + Gluten Free].

Before I get to the recipe I'd like to mention that in the Southern Caribbean what we 'call' Saffron (or sorfran) is really turmeric and NOT Saffron. Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus sativus, commonly known as the "saffron crocus". As we continue with the 5 days of Christmas recipes, chef Marc is joining us to share his take on this tasty vegan Sorfran rice (Turmeric Rice Pilaf) A lovely one-pot dish which is packed with layers of flavor, is gluten free and something you'll be proud to have on your holiday dinner table.

Saltfish (salted cod) Stir Fry Recipe.

Saltfish (salted cod) Stir Fry Recipe.

30 June 2013

In the past we’ve used beef and shrimp as the base for delightful stir fry Caribbean style, but there’s no reason why we can’t use one of the most popular ingredients in the Caribbean with similar or dare I say better results. Saltfish (dry slated cod or other white fish) is a much revered ingredient throughout […]

Curry Jingi (Chinese Okra) A Tasty Vegetarian Dish.

17 June 2013

As a young fella on the islands I knew this vegetable as the one our mom would sometimes use to scrub blackened pots with and to be quite honest, I was never a fan of it. As we’ve discussed before, that lack of appreciation quickly went away as I grew older. When dried the jingi […]

Our mom would make a very similar dish for when my dad would have his friends over to play cards and she called her’s steamed breadfruit. Basically stewed pork, topped with breadfruit and simmered in freshly made coconut milk. That was and still is a hit with anyone who’s ever had the pleasure of having […]

Carrot punch or carrot juice as it’s also called in the Caribbean is one of those rich and creamy drinks you’ll find being made throughout the region. Recipes may differ, but the base ingredient of freshly grated (or food processor as in my case) carrots is constant. Chilled with a few cubes of ice on […]

Jamaican Festivals – The Ultimate Fried Dumplings!

My first true encounter with ‘good’ Jamaican festivals was breakfast at our friend Dino’s home in Portmore Jamaica several years ago. Imagine waking up to a full spread of festivals, ackee and saltfish, boiled green bananas and to top it all off, a piping hot cup of rich and creamy Milo! Moms (Dino’s mom) had […]

Caribbean Spinach With Shrimp Recipe.

Today we’ll be using two of my favorite ingredients in a combination similar to how our mom would do bhaji (dasheen bush) and salted fish (salt cod) when we were kids. With a little heat from scotch bonnet peppers and with a wicked garlic/onion base, it will be outstanding. And very quick to put together. […]

15 May 2013

As a kid I hated the taste and texture of okra (ochro) but I can safely say that it’s now one of my favorite vegetables to use in cooking. Soups and stews is not complete without a few okras in there, but pan frying them is still my choice. Our mom probably gets a good […]
