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..
