Chadon Beni (shado beni, culantro) Garlic Sauce.

Chadon Beni (shado beni, culantro) Garlic Sauce.

I assume our love affair with garlic sauce (like garlic aioli) is influenced by the food immigrants from the Middle East brought with them to our shores many moons ago. Did you know… “The last group of immigrants to venture to colonial Trinidad originated in the region previously known as Greater Syria, which comprises of […]

Fried Seasoned Red Snapper.

Fried Seasoned Red Snapper.

The only way our mom would get us to eat fish as kids was when she would pan fry King Fish and serve it to us with ketchup and a little pepper sauce. I guess it’s the same way our daughters learned to appreciate fish, as my mom (grandma) would purposely make fried fish when […]

Cheese Paste Sandwich Spread.

Cheese Paste Sandwich Spread.

If you’re from the Caribbean and you’ve never had a cheese paste sandwich for lunch, your mommy didn’t love you. I’m just joking, but just about everyone I speak with about having cheese paste sandwiches, they can all relate.. no matter which island they’re from. Back in the day I recall people also adding a […]

How I love me some shrimp cooked in butternut squash or pumpkin.. let me count the ways. This is one of my favorite recipes and it’s a take on another one I shared a while back which our mom is a boss at making – shrimp cooked in pumpkin. But this time we’ll be adding […]

Baiganee A Vegetarian Classic.

Baiganee A Vegetarian Classic.

Though a very popular side dish/snack sold by many road-side vendors in Trinidad and Tobago, our only encounter with these tasty treats came yearly. Our mom’s cousin would always invite us to her home for Divali, where she would have a buffet of Indian influenced dishes and treats waiting for us. I can still remember […]

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 […]

Fried Shark For Bake And Shark.

Fried Shark For Bake And Shark.

Seems the masses are getting impatient. After posting the fried bake recipe last week, I’m getting ‘friendly’ reminders from readers about part two in this three part Bake and Shark series. NO! I didn’t forget about you guys and the other parts to this classic fish sandwich. As website, videos and facebook fan page gets […]

Stewed Beef With String Beans.

Stewed Beef With String Beans.

Green beans of all kinds are a favorite of mine, so finding ways to add extra flavor and texture to them is something I’m constantly experimenting with. Like the Stew Chicken With String Beans I shared with you a while back, this stewed beef with string beans is almost identical. However by using beef instead […]

Island Style Chicken Strips.

Island Style Chicken Strips.

After posting  the video recipe for these island style chicken strips on the Youtube channel, it quickly became one of the most requested recipes. Following on the technique we’d use for making fried chicken when I was a kid on the islands (still remember pounding the Crix crackers to make the crumbs), these could easily […]

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 […]
