Looking for Lentil Soup?

Looking for Lentil Soup?
“Best Ever Lentil Soup” (link to recipe, below) On a semi-regular basis I like to check what keywords are driving people to this site. Without fail “lentil soup” in one form or another is on the list. This surprises me as I often think that I am the only person who loves these humble brown beans (they certainly don’t elicit much response when I mention them to others...

REVIEW: Marilyn Tausend’s La Cocina Mexicana: Many Cultures, One Cuisine (video)

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 of Mexican cuisine...

Give A Child: Ramin Ganeshram's

Give A Friend: Memories of a Cuban Kitchen: More Than 200 Classic Recipes

Give A Friend: Memories of a Cuban Kitchen: More Than 200 Classic Recipes
Cuban cuisine is one that I am a relative newbie to. Because of language differences, and political distance, our two countries have not had much cultural exchange (although they do have a diplomatic presence here). Personal recollections from friends and family who have visited have all been very warm about the reception they received there, and of course the food. Like Trinidad, and much of the Caribbean,...

REVIEW: Ramsay’s Best Menus

REVIEW: Ramsay's Best Menus
Over the last 6 months or so my mother and I have both become quite taken with British Chef Gordon Ramsay.

Ramsay’s Best Menus (which...

REVIEW: Caribbean Seafood Extravaganza
Caribbean Seafood Extravaganza, a local publication from the Seafood Industry Development Company Limited, has become a silent treasure over the last year. This quietly printed book is full of solidly satisfying recipes for many Trinidadian species of fish that many may overlook in favour of the more popular types such as kingfish, carite etc. It also has highly imaginative re-interpretations of traditionally...

Ghosts of Our Culinary Past – Sylvia Hunt’s “Proud Legacy of Our People”

Ghosts of Our Culinary Past – Sylvia Hunt's
Several years ago, the UK based Trini food blogger Can Cook Must Cook posted on “Those Disappearing Pleasures”, the snacks of her childhood which no longer appear on Trini shop shelves. Out of the names she called I could only recognize ‘rock cake’. Bellyful? Shaddock Candy? Kaser Balls? Wha dat? This made me more than a little sad. Apparently many of these items fell out...
