Dishing out food

“Do not tumble the pot.” When my siblings at I were at the age where we were allowed to dish out our own food, directly from the pot or pan, that was the instruction (in retrospect it was more like an admonishment) given by our mother.

Add a ‘lil Achar

Several Christmases ago, I wanted a twist to the glaze I was going to put on baked ham, so I decided to add some mango achar to my homemade guava jam.

Comfort food: Aloo Roti

When last you had Aloo (potato) roti? Earlier in the week I did not feel like eating any of the things I had cooked – not the roast chicken, eddo-leaf callaloo with coconut milk, fried ochroes, roast sweet potatoes, roast breadfruit or beef soup (hmmm, this means I have food for next week).

Thank You, Mommy

I lost my mother less than 2 months ago. Over the years, I have been fortunate, through my writings, to express thoughts of love and appreciation to my mother and for that, I am truly grateful.
