Hi Everyone,   For decades now, electrical devices have been conceptualized, designed and manufactured to make our lives easier in the kitchen.

Pan-tastic Cooking

Hi Everyone,  Like many people, when I travel overseas, I like to shop for electronic gadgets, fine jewellery, clothing and shoes.

Pickled Breadfruit Bajan eats part 2

Hi Everyone, This week we continue with another weekend favourite among Barbadians. Last week we talked about Bajan pudding, but a serving of pudding and souse would not be complete without pickled breadfruit.


Bajan Eats Pt. 1

Hi Everyone, This week begins a 4-part series featuring a few weekend favourites among Barbadians (Bajans).

Palate and passport under threat

Hi Everyone, You know I like pepper right? Really hot pepper! Over the years I have written to you many times about my obsession with the fiery beauty in all forms – sauced, pickled, dried, boiled and flaked.

Stop! Wait! Don’t boil the salt fish

Hi Everyone, All right, brace yourself, today I am going to ask you to do something that may go against a practice you have been doing all your life, and one that you would have seen done by parents and grandparents long before you ever started cooking.

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.

Smoky & Sweet: Melongene Jam

  Hi Everyone,   There is a new twist to my love-hate relationship with the nightshade species that is also known as eggplant, aubergine, baigan, bolanger, brinjal, garden egg, and more popularly as melongene, in Trinidad and Tobago.

A Taste of Home

Hi Everyone, I am currently working on an interview-based project called, MY FOOD, which I host on my blog, Tastes Like Home.

The sweet side of breadfruit

Hi Everyone,  Last weekend I bought 2 breadfruit. I cooked one on Saturday and promised myself that I’d cook the other one on Sunday, and store it in the refrigerator to have with my meals during the week.

Cooking in season Breadfruit Pie

Hi Everyone, Towering above houses, generously scattered across the length and breadth of the region, breadfruit trees are laden with globes of fruit hanging from strong stems.
