Cou-cou and Guyanese fish

Hi Everyone,   This column was written on Thursday, April 28, 2016. I heard the following exchange on the radio today in Barbados between a moderator and a 90-year-old Barbadian woman, as they talked about people through the years who have done remarkable things for their communities without ever seeking the limelight.

Stock Up

Hi Everyone, You can enrich your meals, reduce salt, and save money by making and using your own homemade stock. Stock is a flavoured cooking liquid made from meat, bones, seafood, vegetables, herbs and spices cooked in water for a period of time to extract the flavour from the ingredients used.

For me, it conjures images of my mom standing at the stove, her lone, prized, non-stick pan filled with a little more than an inch of oil, and thick, hand-cut sticks of potatoes surrounded by bubbles from the hot oil.

Lead Pipe

Hi Everyone, There is something indescribable about the combination of freshly grated coconuts, flour, sugar, a little butter, ground cinnamon, grated nutmeg and a few drops of essence, all brought together by milk or water.
