Trini Bakery Goodies – The Photos


Coconut Rock Buns (link to recipe below)

Over the last few weeks on Twitter, myself and various other Caribbean cooks (who suitably enough converse under the #caribbeancooks hashtag) have been sharing and reminiscing over various food-related childhood memories. Chennette, who is my dearest and oldest foodie friendship, took the conversation to her blog with the post “Ode To The Bread Van”. The bread van of yore doesn’t seem commonplace anymore, and is something that I myself have written fondly about in the past.

As a child I fixated on one or two goodies and never really paid attention to anything else that was offered. As a result there were one or two items in Chennette’s writeup that left me puzzled, in particular ‘biscuit cake’. Even Google left very little for my edification. Fortunately she followed up this month with an even more thorough post “Trini Bakery Goodies – The Photos”, that includes a picture (and recipe) for said Biscuit Cake – that thing really doesn’t ring any bells! Fortunately all of the others do :) She was also kind enough to link to two of my own personal favourite recipes. Those for Cassava Pone and Coconut Rock Buns, as well as to many more around the Caribbean blogosphere.

    My uncle started his bakery (closed now for several years) in Trinidad with just a bread van. He would bake and go around begging people to try his bread. His grew to be one of the largest in Trinidad. And then came Kiss! He closed his several years ago. But I remember coconut rock cakes and a cookie that we kids called hardes hard but that I think most people call the biscuit cake. :o) Love your photos.

    Have to agree with Chennette, Sarina the pic looks beautiful. Really brings back some memories. Will have to look out for the #caribbeancooks hash tag when I'm on twitter. Take care :-)
