Cinnamon-Apple Streusel Muffins (recipe)

Cinnamon-Apple Streusel Muffins (recipe)

Hearty, dense, earthy, wholesome. These are the words that I traditionally associate with muffins, thanks to years of my mom’s bran-carrot-raisin concoctions. As good and nutritious as those are they are also the polar opposite of everything that this recipe was. Yet another slam-dunk from […]

Fish puffs are a staple in Trini bakeries. Usually stuffed with creamy fish paste (or chicken) in a piped choux pastry. They are delicious!

Trinidad Dosti Roti (recipe) – a valiant attempt

Trinidad Dosti Roti (recipe) – a valiant attempt

As I mentioned long ago my past attempts at roti making have been nothing short of tragic. My mother has been hiding her tawa away from me for the past few years as a result, eyeing me suspiciously whenever I would plead for the co-ordinates […]

Brother’s Bread (recipe)

Well it’s been a while since I have posted a bread recipe. With rising bread prices here in Trinidad my mother and I have now committed to making our own bread on a full time basis rather than occasionally. Although my ciabatta bread recipe has […]

Scottish Oatcakes (recipe)

Scottish Oatcakes (recipe)

When I first read about Beck ‘n Posh’s British food challenge (titled Fish n Quips) I was immediately filled with curiousity, excitement and fear. You see, and I hope I don’t offend too many, most of my memories of eating in England are far from […]

Ciabatta Bread – an overview

Ciabatta Bread – an overview

“I feast on wine and bread, and feasts they are” – Michelangelo As ‘ciabatta bread’ continues to be the #1 search term via which people stumble onto TriniGourmet.com I thought I’d dig up some more information about this increasingly popular bread! 🙂 If you are […]

REVIEW: The Roti King ‘Roti Skins’

REVIEW: The Roti King ‘Roti Skins’

As I’ve previously mentioned here in Trinidad the term ‘roti skin’ is commonly used when referring solely to the roti bread, rather than ‘roti’ which usually refers to a dish of roti bread + fillings/sides. Confusing? Well, it was equally confusing to me to realize […]

Fried Bake ‘n Fish (recipe)

Fried Bake ‘n Fish (recipe)

‘Shark n Bake’ is -the- ultimate beach food here in Trinidad (although it can be bought in other places as well). Its epicentre (where i’ve been told the dish was also first created) is Maracas Bay (which is also the most popular beach on the […]

Baking Powder Biscuits (recipe)

Baking Powder Biscuits (recipe)

There is something about Sundays. The pace of life is slower, the roads are empty, the neighbourhood is quieter, and the sunshine seems slightly brighter. Sundays lend themselves to leisurely baking like no other day of the week. That’s why last Sunday I decided to […]

Fabulous Find #1: Radmila’s Buttermilk Cornbread

Like any good food blogger I have amassed a huge list of recipes from other bloggers that I plan to ‘try one day’. As I slowly work my way through them I decided that I would highlight those that are really spectacular in a feature […]

Carambola Bread (recipe)

Two weeks ago I bought a bunch of starfruit (carambola) with the crazy idea of using it to make a cheesecake topping. Unfortunately the cheesecake never materialized and I was stuck with these silly green things in my vegetable drawer. Rather than let them go […]

How to Cook Guyanese Roti (video)

Found this clip on YouTube on how to make a basic roti skin (sada? paratha? join the discussion!). Thought I would share it with everyone 🙂 I have never seen a Trini roti so small yet though! 😀 Any differences that you all have when […]

Oh sweet sweet blogosphere. Does my devotion have no end!? It’s the middle of the night and I have a sudden hankering for Hops! Now what is hops? I am sure for most of you you are thinking about some kind of grain and the […]
