When Trinidad was all abuzz with preparations for the Summit of the Americas [1] I got the wild idea to feature the foods of the member nations as part of a buildup to the actual event. Except for one entry [2] unfortunately that didn’t happen as things got unexpectedly busy on my side. I did however cook up a storm though and those regional specialties will eventually all see the light of day on here :)

This recipe from Dominica is deliciously addictive and is guaranteed to go straight to your waistline! :) It reminds me a lot of a Puerto Rican coquito [3].
