What’s cooking today?

Surprise, surprise – there have been requests for more food photos! How could I possibly forget? This is a Caribbean blog after all, and our fantastic cuisine is one of the things we look forward to each day. The historic influences on Caribbean cuisine is as varied and colourful as the ingredients used to create our tantalizing creations. Dependent on where in the Caribbean you’re located, the dishes can be traced back to Amerindian, African, East Indian, British, Spanish, French or Chinese origins – amongst others. Today’s post is dedicated to my friend Bernice, I know she’s been looking out for this. Just a note of warning, what you’re about to see is traditional meet economy meet budding Food Network star, so without further ado, here’s what’s been cooking in my kitchen recently! Enjoy!
