Taste of T&T 2008

Taste of T&T 2008
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a year since Taste T&T was held. What a year it’s been! Those of you have been with me a while may remember that it was just after the last Taste T&T that I was unceremoniously booted from my last webhost, for being ‘too popular’. Ever since then I’ve been hosted on GoDaddy with no problems so far *knocks wood*. Last year’s... 

Q&A #3: In Search of Kachourie

Q&A #3: In Search of Kachourie
This entry is part 3 of 13 in the series Q&A Reader’s Question: Hi! I happened upon your blog because I was looking for a Trini recipe. Maybe you can help me. I had a dish that had pureed yellow split peas, cilantro, sliced onions, a little garlic, and some jalapeno pepper. The puree was then rolled into rough balls and fried. It was amazing. Do you recognize the item or know a recipe? TriniGourmet’s...

Q&A #2: What is the recipe for Rituals' Double Chocolate Oreo Cheesecake?
This entry is part 2 of 13 in the series Q&A Reader’s Question: • Can i get the recipe for the Double chocolate oreo cheesecake from Rituals? TriniGourmet’s Answer: When I first posted this picture of a slice of Double Chocolate Oreo Cheesecake (actually from Vie de France) I never expected to get so many requests for its recipe. Unfortunately I don’t have one… but there are... 

Taste of T&T 2007 – Final Recap! (video)

Taste of T&T 2007 - Final Recap! (video)
Ok, the TriniGourmet is now probably the last Trini on the planet to share her experience of this year’s Taste T&T festival, but you know what they say ‘save the best for last’ It’s taken me longer than I had expected to get to this because of 1) the server issue I had last month 2) putting the PaperBag Gourmet Club series into effect 3) working on another ‘mystery... 

Q&A #1: What is Green Seasoning?

Q&A #1: What is Green Seasoning?
This entry is part 1 of 13 in the series Q&A One of the unexepcted pleasures of running this site is getting a chance to hear and answer your questions. Some of you are Trinis who have lived abroad for some time. Some of you are foreigners who have come to love a certain special Trinbagonian and want to recreate their culinary memories. Others of you are foreigners who have visited our shores and... 

Nyam #2: Canada’s kslobodian is sump.tuo.us

Nyam #2: Canada's kslobodian is sump.tuo.us
Confused by my title? Don’t be This is simply the second in my Nyam series For those who are newer to this blog, Nyam was a series I started last year where I interview the creators of food blogs that capture my imagination and appetite My first interview was with fellow Trini blogger Chennette. This time I shifted my gaze to the far north, Vancouver Canada to be exact. Canada is a country...

Taste of T&T 2007 - Chef & Gourmet Menu details
Well the menu and restaurant details for this weekend’s Taste of T&T are out, and I am impressed. These offerings sound delish! I am seriously reconsidering not shelling out for a gourmet ticket. Check ‘em out! ETA: Looks like I’ll be stuffing myself in Group C with Chennette and Lilandra Group C – Saturday: . Food Etcetera (Chef Dean Johnson): Spiced Rubbed Grilled... 

BBM 2.0 – Jacques Pure Chocolate Hagelslag Granules

BBM 2.0 - Jacques Pure Chocolate Hagelslag Granules
This was the last item in my Blogging by Mail package. I bet you thought that box was bottomless! I thought these ‘Jacques Pure Chocolate Hagelslag Granules‘ were just ‘sprinkles’ but they’re not! They melt in your mouth! (All the sprinkles I have ever tasted were firm, these are soft). I was very confused (and slightly grossed out) by the cover image which promoted... 

BBM 2.0 – Doitung Macadamia Nuts with Wasabi

BBM 2.0 - Doitung Macadamia Nuts with Wasabi
Although this is one of the last of the items in my Blogging by Mail package to be written up it actually was the first item to be opened. My mother is a nut addict and I had never tasted macadamia nuts before so it seemed like a no-brainer. Plus there was wasabi, and I haven’t had anything wasabi-related in years I really enjoyed these nuts because they reminded me of Brazil nuts (though lighter... 

BBM 2.0 – Guylian Truffles

BBM 2.0 - Guylian Truffles
No words necessary! These were the last to be consumed, but they are not the last in this series by any means Customs sliced the bottom of this (and one other box) checking for ‘contraband’! So creamy and light inside!!! Tweet  Read More →

BBM 2.0 – Thai Kick Hot Sauce

BBM 2.0 - Thai Kick Hot Sauce
This post was originally published on April 8, 2007. It has been updated once since then. I love hot sauce but I never had a hot sauce like this! Eva said that she picked it up on her latest trip to SE. Asia, which instantly made it doubly OOOOO to me From the minute I saw it’s cloudy brown colour I knew it had to have tamarind, and reading the list of ingredients showed I was right (from... 

BBM 2.0 – Tagliatelle with Mushrooms

BBM 2.0 - Tagliatelle with Mushrooms
In my Blogging by Mail package was a package of odd looking brown noodles. I wasn’t sure at first what they were. From the italian text I could figure out it was pasta, but with mushrooms? Was i reading it wrong? Turns out I wasn’t! This package comes from a pasta house called Morelli, you can visit their website here (it’s only in Italian at the moment though but really gorgeous... 

BBM 2.0 – Le Saunier Fleur de Sel de Camargue (French Sea Salt)

BBM 2.0 - Le Saunier Fleur de Sel de Camargue (French Sea Salt)
Sea Salt! I love Sea Salt! I started buying it a few years ago after TruValu stopped stocking kosher salt. I loved its coarse texture, intense flavour and of course, being the health hippy that I was raised to be, its trace mineral goodness. Normally I buy Celtic Sea Salt at HiLo -at an obscene price- but lately Cuisine (a local brand) has been producing a sea salt that is very affordable. I don’t... 

BBM 2.0 – Petits Calins de Pont-Aven: Dark chocolate wafers filled with Mint cream

BBM 2.0 - Petits Calins de Pont-Aven: Dark chocolate wafers filled with Mint cream
I’ve never been a big fan of ‘thin mints’. My only memories of them were in the boxes of US Girl Guide cookies that would appear from time to time in the dorms during college. I believe I’ve also had them locally but I don’t think they are very popular. I’ve never been a big fan of mint in candies, and always thought it felt clashed with the chocolate coating. So... 

BBM 2.0 – Bovetti Savory Artisan Chocolate

BBM 2.0 - Bovetti Savory Artisan Chocolate
Bovetti Artisan Chocolate! I had never known about this company (surprise surprise) so I went online and found Bovetti.com You know you are dealing with a French website when you click on “English” and the language is still French Fortunately some of my CXC (high school) French was still rolling around my head and I was able to navigate to some pages that were actually in English! Here... 

BBM 2.0 – Dolfin Dark Chocolate with Cinnamon from Ceylan

BBM 2.0 - Dolfin Dark Chocolate with Cinnamon from Ceylan
This chocolate bar was as divine to unwrap as it was to consume. It came in a plastic sealed package that reminded me of my father’s old school tobacco pouches I am a huge lover of dark chocolates, so I was in 7th heaven with this bar! What was most peculiar about this bar was that although the cinnamon smell was intense, you didn’t actually taste the cinnamon until the chocolate had...
