Haitian Influenced Epis Chicken.

Haitian Influenced Epis Chicken.

After making a fresh batch of Epis (zepis) I decided to put it to use on some boneless chicken breast I had thawing in the sink for dinner. If you've ever struggled with dry and bland chicken breast (say chicken chest in the Caribbean) you'll definitely want to give this recipe a try. Moist, tender and packed with flavors of that Haitian Epis. I'm not sure if there's an actual Epis Chicken recipe in Haiti, but I was thoroughly impressed with this one.

Tasty Vegetarian 3 Spinach Rice

Tasty Vegetarian 3 Spinach Rice

Looking back I think I originally documented this recipe late summer, early fall last year.. when my garden was loaded with the 'spinach' I'm about to use in this recipe. I'm using the word 'spinach' a bit loosely, as I'm really referring to several types of greens when I do. I'm a HUGE fan of greens so I usually plant several varieties in my garden every year. I'm told that as a kid on the islands my favorites (bhagi aka greens) were Dasheen Bush (tender leaves of the dasheen plant), Pak Choi and Chorai (Jamaican Callalloo)... mom never had a problem with me eating when she would cook those dishes.

Baby Pak Choi With Salted Cod The Caribbean Way.

Baby Pak Choi With Salted Cod The Caribbean Way.

One of my favorite dishes growing up on the islands was when mom would make pak choi with leftover stewed pork. The slight crunch from the pak choi (not over-cooked) combined with the flavors brought to the game by the tender pieces of stewed pork with hints of ginger.. I may have to get that […]

With both Jamaican callaloo (aka amaranth, callaloo, chorai or bhagi) and Swiss chard both in abundance in my garden this summer, I thought I’d combine them both for a delicious vegetarian recipe.

Rich And Creamy Caribbean Pumpkin Rice.

Rich And Creamy Caribbean Pumpkin Rice.

Pumpkin rice rice is a dish I only just started to appreciate after having it at an “Island Grill” fast food joint in Kingston,  just over a year ago. Though that pumpkin rice was rather bland, it worked well with the side of spicy jerk chicken and creamy coleslaw or maybe I was terribly hungry […]

Stew Chicken With String Beans.

Stew Chicken With String Beans.

  Stewed chicken with string beans was usually a “Monday” dish in our home back in the day. Leftover stewed meats (usually chicken) from Sunday’s huge lunch was used to enhance the flavor of boring string beans… probably the only way our mom would get us to eat beans. She would usually cook down the […]

Can smoke herrings be considered comfort food?

My idea of comfort food is any meal that takes me back to a time or place where I was in total bliss.  Words alone could never tell how happy it was for us as kids growing up on the islands, but there are several meals that takes me right back to those days. I […]
