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 […]

A traditional Trinbago “country” dish with baby bananas.

A traditional Trinbago “country” dish with baby bananas.

I’m sure you’ve seen those tiny little bananas in the supermarket… normally called “baby bananas”. But have you ever given much thought as to what people do with these cute little bananas that look like they forgot to grow up?

Swiss chard with an inkling of salted cod and garlic.

There are so many things I’d never touch even with a 10ft pole as a child, but I find myself having cravings for the very same things as I grew older. Fish, Fried Ochro, Pumpkin, Water Cress and any of the more stronger tasting greens like Chorai. But I’ve always been a huge fan of […]

Eddoes doesn’t have to be the mystery food.

Eddoes doesn’t have to be the mystery food.

This recipe post is inspired by a conversation I had with a lady at the grocery store recently. I recall when we first moved to Canada, finding any food closely related to what we enjoyed in the Caribbean was almost impossible. If you didn’t source out a specialty store, you had to settle for typical […]
