About

Welcome to Trinigourmet.com! We’re an award-winning blog that helps food lovers around the world add a dash of Caribbean Glam to their tables. “Sweet Han’ Fuh So!”

Since 2006 we’ve used the power of the Internet to spread awareness of authentic Trinidadian and Caribbean dishes. In seeking to preserve and elevate visual depictions of our region’s culinary heritage we’ve enabled thousands throughout the Diaspora to recreate fond childhood memories. We’ve also introduced just as many (if not more) to a cuisine that still remains largely unpromoted and increasingly vulnerable to dilution and misrepresentation.

How It All Began:

In 2006 after a car accident made me unable to continue my work as a life and business coach, a chance online conversation with an old college friend brought into sharp focus the rich culinary heritage of my country.

As I spoke to my friend of swizzle sticks, browning, and doubles, her curiousity and amazement grew. I now realized I had a new mission. To spread the word of the dishes and approaches we here in Trinidad & Tobago, too often take for granted. Within 24 hours of that conversation I had registered this domain and with little more than a Naparima Cookbook and a willingness to document my successes (and struggles) in mastering the cuisine of my land, I got started.

Fast forward to today:

Trinigourmet is now the Internet’s #1 site for Trinidadian and Caribbean cuisine. We have been featured in Caribbean Beat Magazine. Saveur Magazine has designated us a “Best of the Web/Sites we Love”, and Sam Sifton, Dining Editor of the New York Times described us as “an essential guide to Caribbean cooking at home.” For a complete list of our growing media mentions visit our Press Page.

In January 2011 I also became a contributing writer to Macaroni Kid Trinidad – Trinidad’s largest parenting and family-related online community. I have been thrilled to share a series of exclusive recipes with their membership.

I am also currently working on my first full length ebook “Trinigourmet’s Glam By Request” the followup to my popular “Seven Sweet Trini Treats“.
