Sorrel Chutney

As promised, I am sharing with you a recipe to make a chutney using the boiled and softened sorrel after it would have been cooked to extract the juice to make last week’s Sorrel Liqueur.

Sorrel Liqueur

A liqueur is a very sweet alcoholic beverage. It is made with a distilled spirit such as rum (white or dark), vodka etc, along with fruit and added sugar.

Boozy Bread Pudding

If you like the flavour of the boozy rum-soaked, aged dried fruits that are used to make traditional Christmas cake/black cake/Christmas pudding, but find the cake itself too intense, then try this bread pudding.

Pressure Cooker Pot Roast

This is not your typical pot roast. First off, it is made with pork and not beef, but you can certainly make it with beef if you do not eat pork.

Christmas feast

Welcome to In Good Taste’s Christmas table, which serves up an appetizer, an entrée, a dessert and an adult drink.

Christmas meats

These meat dishes would be a welcome addition to any Christmas feast. You can choose to prepare one, two or all three.

Christmas sides

Crispy okra salad If they are open minded, your family and friends who do not like okra might find they grudgingly liking this salad.

Holiday desserts

These fun desserts are ideal for the holidays and offer a welcome respite from the cake that is prevalent at this time of the year.

Broccoli-Carrot Slaw

Growing up, Popeye the Sailorman was one of my favourite cartoons. I liked how he was armed with strength after popping the can and eating the spinach.

Potato Pie with Coconut Cream

Three weeks ago in my Tastes Like Home column, Nuttier for Coconuts, in celebration of all this coconut, I mentioned making potato pie and using fresh homemade coconut cream instead of dairy cream to make the pie.

Masala Potatoes (Curry Mashed Potatoes)

If you’re looking for a different way of cooking potatoes this Diwali, then try this South-Indian version that is generally served with Poori (which I talked about yesterday in Tastes Like Home.

Coconut Scones with Coconut Oil

A couple of years ago, in my Tastes Like Home column, I had written about my experiments using hardened coconut oil (liquid coconut oil that solidified when refrigerated) to replace butter in pastries, cakes and other treats like scones and biscuits.

Quick Cooking Lamb Chops

You might not think of lamb when it comes to making a quick dish but you should because it totally works; and if you have a pressure cooker, even better.

Breakfast Potatoes

Whenever I go out to breakfast or brunch, I ignore the bread, bagels and pancakes and head straight to the breakfast potatoes.

Baked Pork Buns

These buns are a celebration of baked Char Siu Bao. Char Siu Bao is Chinese barbeque pork bun.

Pear & Bread Bruschetta Style

Are you enjoying the bounty of in-season avocado? I hope so. You can make shakes, salads, dressings and more with this buttery, creamy fruit that has an inherent note of sweetness.

Fried Broccoli

The term ‘fried’ in this recipe refers to the style of cooking we Guyanese employ when we talk about cooking vegetables – fried pumpkin, fried callaloo etc.

Green Tomato Choka

Tomato Choka is usually made with ripe, red, firm, juicy tomatoes, however, green tomatoes make excellent choka too.

Sweet Potato Dumplings

The market here (in Barbados) is rife with orange-flesh sweet potatoes. They are a joy to bake with simply because they make everything look stunning with a rich golden-orange hue.

Chicken Salad

Even though we live in a tropical environment all year round, we do feel the effects of the changing weather systems throughout the year.

Grilling Fruits

Everyone knows that pineapple and stone fruits can be grilled but there are other fruits that can be grilled too such as citrus fruits like oranges.

Fruit soup

If you’re looking for an easy dessert that uses mostly fruit, then you’ve hit the jackpot when you make a fruit soup.

Tandoori Masala-rubbed Chicken

This is not the traditional tandoori chicken where the meat is marinated overnight in yogurt, ginger, garlic and tandoori masala, and then grilled or barbequed.

Cassava in Pickle

Boiled and sliced ground provisions work well as a side dish or the main starch to a curry or stew with lots of sauce/gravy.

Two-step Pork Belly

The headline above is not really the name of this dish; it is more representative of the number of steps involved in preparing the dish.

Cheddar-Scallion Biscuits

If you are looking for something special to make for breakfast on this Mother’s Day morning or for afternoon tea, these cheddar-scallion biscuits would be ideal.

Crusty Potatoes

Think of this dish of crusty potatoes as one giant roastie. Roasties are British-style roast potatoes.

Tomatoes with Basil Oil

I do not know which cuisine or who came up with the idea of pairing tomatoes with basil, but, as you know, it is an unbeatable combination – raw or cooked.

Fish Fried Rice

No, I do not mean Vegetable Fried Rice topped with fried fish; I am talking here about fish that’s cooked-in/stir fried with the rice and vegetables.

Marinated Roasted Peppers

Roasted sweet peppers marinated with fresh lime or lemon juice, salt, good quality olive oil and seasoned with garlic, is a tasty bite any way you have it.

Baked Spicy Asian Wings

Chicken wings make perfect finger food whether you are entertaining, thinking of food to snack on over a long weekend, or nibbles to take on an outing.

Mimosa, Perfect for Brunch

One of the things I like about brunch—apart from being able to serve foods that straddle breakfast and lunch—is the opportunity to serve crisp, sparkling fruity cocktails such as the Mimosa.

Morning Shakes

Those of you who have been reading me over the years know that breakfast is always a struggle for me.

Masala Okra

As much as we may like certain ingredients, buy and cook them regularly, there are times when we seek to have them in different ways.

Pineapple Chow

Trinbagonians make a quick pickle called chow that they eat as a snack or an accompaniment to meals.
