A Classic Jamaican Jerk Marinade.

A Classic Jamaican Jerk Marinade.

I just love the variety of exciting and scrumptious dishes you can find as you work your way up and down the islands that make up the Caribbean. To date I’ve not been to Jamaica, even though my friends who hails from there have  extended several invitations the past few years. Hopefully I can make […]

Fried Chicken From The Islands.

Fried Chicken From The Islands.

If you’ve been following the updates on the Facebook Fan page, you would have seen where I was asking for suggestions for a fried chicken recipe, as I had  a severe craving and didn’t feel like KFC or Popeye’s! I wanted chicken that had that strong home-fried taste, texture and smell. I wanted to control […]

Tropical Curry Beef With Potato Recipe.

Tropical Curry Beef With Potato Recipe.

One of the things I love doing is watching cooking shows, but ever since I reduced the amount of channels we get from our cable package, I was left without the cooking channel. I hated having to pay for channels we never watch, just to get the Cooking Channel. Even to get the cooking channel […]

Ultimate Curry Chicken?

Ultimate Curry Chicken?

A few months back I came across a wonderful video online of a fellow Trinbagonian living in the US who created a cooking video called “The Ultimate Curry Chicken” and though his method and ingredients of cooking curry chicken was a bit different than mine, I’m sure it was just as tasty. If you’ve watched […]

Trinidad Callaloo Recipe, The True Spirit Of The Islands.

Trinidad Callaloo Recipe, The True Spirit Of The Islands.

What would Sunday lunch (the biggest meal of the week on the islands) be without a healthy serving of Callaloo, rice, stew chicken, macaroni pie and slices of fried plantains? Not to be confused with Jamaican callaloo, callaloo is an actual dish and it’s not made from the bush/plant that our Jamaican friends call callaloo. […]

Make room for Sada Roti, Pita Bread.

Make room for Sada Roti, Pita Bread.

My early years in Canada saw me falling in love with pita, as it was the closest thing to sada roti that I could get. Hamilton in those days had 1 or 2 Caribbean restaurants, but none of them served any type of roti. The same can be said today, except the two that I […]

Curry Channa (Chickpeas) With Aloo Recipe.

Curry Channa (Chickpeas) With Aloo Recipe.

Channa and aloo or “chickpeas with potato” cooked in curry and stuffed into “hops” bread was a fav of mine growing up. I would visit my uncle who was a teacher at Marabella Junior Secondary school and just outside the gates were vendors selling all sorts of local street food. Including channa and aloo sandwiches […]

Curry Beef or Beef Curry?

Curry Beef or Beef Curry?

I do apologize for being an absent chef the past couple weeks. As mentioned in my last post we were off to Trinidad and Tobago for my sister’s wedding and for a short vacation. And though I had all intention to cook and blog while we were there, there was so much to see and […]

Cabbage with Corned Beef (bully beef) Recipe.

Cabbage with Corned Beef (bully beef) Recipe.

This one can also be archived within the “bache” or bachelor food section. When you grow up on the islands at one point or the other you’ve had corned beef than comes in the can and not the sliced stuff you get at the deli in north America, on your rye bread. We’ve reinvented the […]
