Food is at the heart of every Caribbean household. We love to eat and experiment with our cuisine. The kitchen is a place where families get together, share stories, pass down traditions and prepare the young ones for life. Here on Island Vignettes, we aim to recreate your kitchen table memories – the good ones! Each of these dishes is linked to a memory, a story, a piece of my life history.
