Hi Everyone, This is the last in the 4-part series of weekend Bajan eats. When one thinks of Cou-cou, the mind immediately focuses on cornmeal, the dish sometimes referred to as turn cornmeal (because of the constant turning/stirring that needs to take place to ensure that the cornmeal does not scorch or burn).

Channa Souse

Hi Everyone, While I have eaten various types of souse – pig’s feet, cow heel and cow face as well as chicken feet, green banana and breadfruit – I had never had channa souse until a couple of months ago, while on that trip to Trinidad that I bet you are tired of hearing of by now.
