Well the days are counting down to the December 6th launch of my G+ series “Sweet Han': Caribbean Cooking With Sarina”! But before that happens, I made one more guest spot on Larry Fournillier‘s show “Learning To Cook Caribbean”. Conducted on Sunday, November 18, I whipped up a vegan Divali-inspired spread, dare I say feast?

When I was studying in the USA it seemed that every bar had Angostura bitters on its shelves. I realized that to Americans this tiny bottle was seen as a cocktail ingredient. How so very different from here in Trinidad where Angostura bitters is a staple in every kitchen, and is used to flavour everything from soups, to roasts, to ice cream! Growing up a few drops of Angostura in a glass of warm water...
It was one of those moments you always hope for, but can never predict or plan. A message on Twitter in early January letting me know that Sam Sifton, Dining editor of The New York Times was working on a piece about Caribbean Style Oxtail Stew and that I should probably drop him a line. The messenger? Sanura Weathers of My Life Runs On Food.
After a brief bout of should I/shouldn’t I, I decided...
Hey everyone! I am so happy to officially announce my partnership this year with Macaroni Kid Trinidad!
In the past I have been offered opportunities for collaborations and I have, until now, turned them all down. Until now. You see, for me, a project has to be aligned with my core values, and I have to feel that in some way, the project is for a larger good to remain committed.
This is truly what...
Have you seen the Nov/Dec 2010 issue of Caribbean Beat Magazine? I hadn’t until I started getting congratulatory messages on Twitter last month about my mention in it! Of course I then rushed to their website to see what it was all about And, there it was!
The article “Perfect Presents For Foodie Friends” is written by BBC Producer Franka Philip, the mind behind “Can Cook,...
Are you as much of a Food Television junkie as I am? It’s bad, I tell you. This year has been particularly bad with the nonstop flow of competitive reality shows and the launch of Cooking Channel! I’ve even taken to live tweeting and following the chatter on the various Twitter channels that accompany the airing of my favourite shows. Before you write me off as a neurotic techno-addict,...
July 5, 2010: Sometime between when this post was originally written in 2007 and now it appears Saveur Magazine selected this recipe as one of its ‘Best Of The Web‘, and Trinigourmet.com as one of its ‘Sites We Love’. I can’t explain how much this means to me as it has always been my hope and aim to disseminate Trinidadian cuisine to the wider world. It really makes the...
I’m happy to note that TriniGourmet gets some link love in a recent piece in Condé Nast Traveler. Titled “I’m Dreaming of a Coconut Christmas” it takes a look at the Spanish influences in Trinidad’s Christmas Culture.
I was quite excited when I got the heads up from the reporter. Clearly a writer who takes his craft and journalistic integrity seriously. For the record,...
