Caribbean Style Chicken Livers.

Caribbean Style Chicken Livers.

Our mom will verify that no matter where in the world you’re doing your parenting gig, you’ll encounter kids who refuse to eat chicken livers. I still recall the look on my face when we’d come home from school and you’d open the pot to see what mom prepared for dinner and with horror you […]

Jerk Pork Sliders

Jerk Pork Sliders

Traditionalists can be very picky when it comes to any food labelled as being ‘jerked’, as they feel any jerked meat must be done over pimento wood. Though I agree that there’s the unique taste from the smoke off the pimento wood… but when you can’t source the actual pimento wood you must rely on […]

Pastelles A Caribbean Christmas Tradition.

Pastelles A Caribbean Christmas Tradition.

Growing up on the islands pastelles were not on our hit-list for Christmas, as it wasn’t something made by our mom or dad. I do recall the lady who lived a couple houses across from us had a part time job around the holiday season where she assisted in making pastelles by the hundreds and […]

A Tasty Caribbean Recipe Using Green Bananas.

A Tasty Caribbean Recipe Using Green Bananas.

  This recipe is a combination of many things. It’s a take on a recipe my mom would make but instead of using canned salmon as I did, she would normally use pieces of salted cod. Then about a year ago I saw Levis Roots of “Reggae Reggae Sauce” sauce fame cook up a batch […]

Here’s a another dish our mother could not get us to eat as kids. Our reason being.. “it eh have no colour”. On the islands we tend to do a lot of eating with our eyes and we expect everything cooked to have some “colour” to it or it’s automatically unappetizing for us. But like […]

Can smoke herrings be considered comfort food?

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 […]

The simplicity and splendor of fry plantains.

The simplicity and splendor of fry plantains.

Dad it’s getting black! Yup that’s what I heard the last 2 times I purchased plantains with the intention of sharing the simple recipe for fry plantains. I grew up eating fry plantains as a side to many dishes, but my absolute favourite was making sandwiches with these as the filler. I still recall my […]
