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.

Caribbean Style Guacamole.

05 February 2013

I remember a few years back my cousin (jokingly) saying to us “my wife made me guacamole and roti for breakfast”. After the laughter subsided we soon realized that he may have a point. What we lovingly call zabouca choka in Trinidad and Tobago, is pretty much the same thing known as guacamole in other […]

One of the first things I look forward to when I visit my homeland (besides doubles and bake and shark sandwiches) is the island influenced Chinese food, which is a huge part of our everyday culinary landscape.

I’m country to heart and love ground provisions (or “food” as my Jamaican brothers and sisters would say) in all forms. Moving to Canada all those moons […]
