The Ultimate Hummus Recipe.

It's funny how I kept telling people that I'm not a fan of Hummus and just didn't understand the sort of current 'Hummus Hype".. until I started making my own. While Hummus may seem exotic, it's probably one of the simplest recipes to put together. There's no cooking involved, can be done in under 5 minutes and you can play around with flavors you like. In my case I like my Hummus to have a slight kick, with a subtle smoky undertone. Any excuse to put "Caribbean Sunshine" (scotch bonnet peppers) to use.

Simple Oven Roasted Sea Bass.

Did you get a chance to give the Caribbean Fish Stew Using Fresh Cod a test drive yet? As we continue in this #FishFrday mini-series, I've got a super simple way to do a whole fish in the oven. Using a Sea Bass (what's on sale at the fish store currently) as our main ingredient, we'll enhance things with some ginger, scallion, lemon and sliced fennel. Yea, the fennel was on sale so I was convinced by my wallet to bring it home from the grocery store. Since Fennel is not your typical "Caribbean" ingredient, you can use a large sliced onion instead.

Roasted Breadfruit In Stewed Saltfish (salted cod).

This recipe combines two of my favorite dishes into one glorious pot of comfort. After sharing the technique for roasting a breadfruit in an everyday oven, you knew I'd follow up with a recipe for putting that roasted breadfruit to use. Stewed saltfish (salted cod) is as classic as it gets when it comes to Caribbean culinary culture and in the event you cannot source breadfruit, you can use cassava, yam, sweet potato, green cooking bananas or even something as everyday as regular potatoes.

Gratifying Hops Bread.

Gratifying Hops Bread.

28 May 2012

Hops bread is one of those things every Trinbagonian can relate too with some level of passion. For me, it’s playing football (soccer) after school at Irving Park, San Fernando and heading over to the Chinese bakery next to the WASA office,  for hops bread fresh out of the oven… after our game. Digging deep […]

Picante Mango Kuchela.

17 May 2012

My first memory of mango kuchela goes way back to my childhood, when I first had kuchela flavored with mustard oil, along with dhal, rice and fry dry (small herrings or sardines fried very dry until crispy). The memory of that mustard oil clearing my sinus still haunts me and to this day.. I’m still […]

Banana Bread Pudding.

Banana bread pudding is one of those things I don’t recall being made in our home growing up as the dessert of choice was always cake. My mom is a serious baker when it comes to cakes… but traditional stuff and not those fancy ones you see  in the cookbooks and on the Food Network. […]

Ever ask yourself what’s our love affair with pepper sauce? What is about Caribbean people and the heat we’re always seeking?

How To Cook Fry Bodi.

28 April 2012

Fry bodi is yet another dish I only grew to appreciate as I got older and if I’m being completely honest, I must mention that it’s one of those dishes I can’t replicate as good as our mom’s. How come we can do a dish “exactly” as our mom and never be able to replicate […]
