Watch the debut of
Can you believe this time last week I was a nervous wreck counting down the moments until the debut of my new Google+ Hangout on Air series “Sweet Han': Caribbean Cooking With Sarina”? Now it’s all over and done with, the replay exists for all to view at their own leisure, and I’m hard at work on what will be Episode 2. Thanks so much to those of you who...

Baked Kingfish In Pineapple Sauce (video) : As Seen on KwanzaaCulinarians.com
Such a simple recipe. Steaks of fish, lightly poached in an infused wine and tomato sauce, studded with sweet chunks of pineapple, and redolent with the aromatics of Trinidad Green Seasoning. I created this recipe for my upcoming ebook “Holiday Glam: 30+ Festive Caribbean Recipes” and was happy to cook it live last week on the debut of my G+ cooking series “Sweet...

Punch de Creme (recipe)

Punch de Creme (recipe)
This entry is part 3 of 6 in the series Trini ChristmasPunch de Creme, is another of Trinidad’s traditional Christmas drinks. One thing that I really like about punch de creme (as opposed to traditional eggnog) is the use of citrus flavors like lime and Angostura bitters (which has orange extract). This gives the ‘nog’ a fruity lightness that alleviates the sweet creaminess (which...

REVIEW: Marilyn Tausend's La Cocina Mexicana: Many Cultures, One Cuisine (video)
My Verdict:4/5 (1 point deducted for recipe complexity, niche ingredients, lack of vegetarian friendly recipes) Buy from Veni Mange – The Trinigourmet Amazon Store! I first became aware of Marilyn Tausend’s work in the early days of TriniGourmet, when I posted about her Mexican Culinary Tours. In the years since then however her name fell off my radar and my awareness... 

Nothing Like A Trini Xmas (video)

The following article appeared in the 24th December, 2006 issue of the Trinidad Express. It’s hard to believe that BWIA was still active then! Will you be spending the holidays where you want to be this year? I hope so! If not, hopefully the recipes posted so far (and still to come) will help HOME is best for the holidays, at least judging from the number of Trinis flying in for Christmas... 

Trinidad and Tobago Carnival: Part 8 – Machel Montano

Trinidad and Tobago Carnival: Part 8 - Machel Montano
No Carnival writeup would be complete, especially this year without mention of the ever-popular yet ever-controversial Machel Montano. From an earlier incarnation of his MySpace page: Machel Montano began his career in 1982 at age seven. As early as 1984, he formed his band Panasonic Express now called XTATIK. Machels debut album TOO YOUNG TO SOCA, released in 1985, was an instant hit which earned...

1987 Malta Carib Commercial (video)

Malta Carib has been a staple in my home since I was a child. Growing up I felt like quite a ‘big woman’ drinking it from the bottle (I had no idea it was non-alcoholic ). During the 80’s it was promoted not just as an energy booster, but also as an aid for students preparing for exams! From CaribBeer.com Malta Carib is a full-bodied, refreshing non-alcoholic malt beverage that... 

Malta Carib Commercial “Learning” (video)

As previously mentioned, Malta Carib was actually posited as an integral ‘educational aid’ I don’t know if it ever helped me in my exams, but I certainly loved (and still love) the taste. Yum! Please visit my earlier post for more information on Malta Carib. Amazon.com Widgets This post was originally published October 3, 2009. It has been updated once since then. Tweet  Read More →

A Beer is a… Carib (video)

A Beer is a... Carib (video)
Carib Brewery, Eastern Main Road, Champs Fleurs Ask any Trinidadian to complete the following phrase. A beer is a … and you’ll instantly hear a loud uproarious ‘Carib’. For over 50 years the Carib Brewery has been producing Carib beer to the delight of Trinis both at home and abroad. I know that for myself seeing a Carib sign in a pub or a bar abroad was enough to make me... 

Lion’s Baking Powder Commercial (video)

Lion's Baking Powder Commercial (video)
Call it nostalgia but it’s hard to convince me that the local commercials of the 80’s and 90’s didn’t have a certain ‘something’ that the current set lacks. There was something very magnetic about the hooks and taglines back then. Lion’s Baking Powder had a long running advertising campaign that really drilled home that not only would they make your breads... 

Ackee

Ackee
Ackee is one of my favorite ingredients, however it is not something that I think most Trinidadians (or people worldwide) know or have tasted. In fact if it wasn’t for my Jamaican mother I probably would never have tasted it all! I often see Western cookbooks comparing ackee to scrambled eggs, a comparison that I believe is more visual than taste-related. Ackee has a very creamy texture and is...

Where oh where have the Buffalypso gone? (video)
Image Credit: NIGO If, like me, you were a TTT baby (i.e. you grew up only knowing one channel that signed off at noon, and signed back at 2:30 p.m. with the call of “Caribbean Vibration”) then you probably also remember government promos touting the benefits of the mysterious locally-designed ‘Buffalypso’. Part Water Buffalo and part uh… Calypso? this...

20 Interesting Pie & Tart Recipes (video)
Trinidad Macaroni Pie is the #1 pie recipe here on Trinigourmet.com Is it a pie? Is it a tart? The answer may more lie in the recipe’s country of origin and it’s final presentation, than in the ingredients and composition themselves. From Baking911.com A pie is American in design and can be both sweet or savory and is served directly from its pan. Most pies are usually baked with a layer...

This post was originally published on January 29, 2009. It has been updated once since then. So here it is, right on the heels of my first Tuesdays with Dorie entry, my very first Daring Bakers challenge! I first learnt about Daring Bakers in 2006 shortly after starting this blog. Back then the pool of participants was quite small and invitation-only. I would read their entries and ooh and aah over...

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Emancipation Village 2010After about half an hour of casual conversation and enjoyment of the musical offerings of the ‘Village Radio’ the rain eventually lessened into a drizzle.

Food was served in 2 main areas, one officially designated “Food Court” where most of the vendors were still absent or trying to keep dry beneath white tarpaulin, and the area shown above, which was close to the DJ Sound...
