This week begins a 4-part series of a gathering of Tastes Like Home friends that was held in July of this year.
A couple of weeks ago I was telling you about sweating onions, well this week, it is about caramelizing the alliums.
Hi Everyone, Each summer when I travel for my annual vacation, there is always a foodie pursuit for an ingredient, a tool, a piece of equipment or something kitchen related.
Hi Everyone, Sweat is one of the least appetizing words when it comes to food and cooking, but sweated onions are a key part to cooking many dishes.
Hi Everyone, Are we in the last age of a particular generation of grandmothers’ cooking? I’m referring to the grandmothers that had few resources but created meals out of simple fare to feed their families, grandmothers that cooked from instinct rather than a written recipe.
The herb chadon beni is to Trini cuisine what that special fine thyme is to Guyanese cuisine – ever present, a favourite and a signature flavour.
Clap it or shake it?
Hi Everyone, “Long ago, roti used to clap, ply ply… nowadays is share mug shake… sigh.” Gordon Moseley (Facebook posting July 28, 7.36 p.m.).
Hi Everyone, Daylight breaks earlier and the sun sets later, summer is here. Don’t even think of rolling your eyes because we live in a tropical environment 24/7.
– it is a backdoor affair
Hi Everyone, This week’s column concludes the 2-part look at Black Pudding.
It’s late Saturday afternoon. The sun is still high in the sky but it is now what is known as the golden hour, the time of the afternoon when the sun washes everything with a comforting glow of golden hue.
– it’s not about a recipe
This week begins a 2-part series about Black Pudding.
A recipe is someone’s interpretation of how to make a dish.
Telling it like it is
We are people who are at once sophisticated and simple. When it comes to our food, we like to tell it like it is.
What is it about fried chicken that is so alluring? It’s a favourite of almost everyone, (well except vegetarians of course).
Hi Everyone, If you had to come up with 5 food (food & beverage) items that people visiting Guyana must try, what would they be?
When I first conceptualized this column, Tastes Like Home, I knew what I would be getting out of it and I knew what people living away from Guyana would be getting out of it.
Hi Everyone, Every time I come back home for a visit I have to readjust my senses to the abundance of food, especially at the markets.
