Roasted Breadfruit With Smoked Herrings.

This is one of those dishes which immediately takes me back to the Caribbean and my childhood days. Mom would usually make this for us (myself, brother and dad) the odd Saturday dad didn't have to go to work. The breadfruit came directly off my grandmother's tree and it was roasted on an open fire in a coal pot for that true island goodness. While I don't have a coal-pot, nor can I achieve the same unique flavor it gives the breadfruit, this dish is still incredible. Definitely my idea of comfort food.

Coconut Curry Chicken Recipe.

As you make your way across the Caribbean you'll encounter different methods of cooking curry dishes, influenced by one's own preference and family traditions. A prime example is my way of cooking coconut curry chicken.. as I'm about to share. My technique and ingredients will differently differ from other recipes you'll see... even the way I'd see my mom and grandma make their version. Coincidentally I don't recall mom using coconut in curry chicken, unless it was a tough chicken (we say yard fowl), where the use of the coconut acted as a tenderizer.

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.

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’ll admit that I have a weakness for all types of ground provisions, but I have a special attachment to yams.  In soups, steamed, boiled, mashed, scalloped, roasted.. 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 […]

If you’re new to my website or Caribbean cuisine you’re probably wondering how does fried rice relate to the Caribbean. Our cuisine is heavily influenced by the many faces who make up our unique culture. With over 150 years of Chinese history in the Caribbean, our Chinese style food may be a bit different to […]

When most people think about the Caribbean (if you’ve never lived on the islands) one of the things which comes to mind is sipping on a cold glass of rum punch, decorated with slices of fresh fruit while sitting taking in the rays on white sandy beach (or a swim-up bar at an all-inclusive resort).

I have to confess that as a kid growing up on the islands, we never had chow chow with our Christmas ham. However, the variety of ‘pepper sauce” (hot sauce) mom would always have in the kitchen, was all we ever needed. Well that, some soy sauce and ketchup (wicked combo..trust me). In some parts […]

The Ultimate Breadfruit Pie.

I grew up eating breadfruit in a number of ways, but only as an adult when we visited Tobago some years ago, did I have my first delicious encounter with breadfruit pie. It was a long day of driving around the island, when we stopped at Jemma’s Seaview Kitchen for a late lunch. The stewed […]
