Falafel (recipe)

Falafel (recipe)

Falafel is an item that depending on your part of the world is either par for the course, or an unheard of oddity. Growing up here in Trinidad falafels were not part of my culinary experience, however in the last few years, Syrian-Lebanese eateries have […]

Fried Plantain (recipe)

Fried Plantain (recipe)

Fried Plantain is a simple snack that appears to be common on tabletops across the Caribbean. I’ve grown up eating them my father’s way which is to wait for the plantain skins to turn almost black before panfrying them on high heat, until they are […]
