A look inside
Caribbean Classics for Veggie Lovers
Spicy, authentic, and completely bajan classics, from salt bread and turnovers, curried potatoes with pumpkin and much, much more.
Treats and Sweets
This cookbook is complemented by its array of delicious, island-themed desserts and cocktails that bring a tropical flavor to every kitchen.
Mouthwatering Seasonings and Sauces
Recipes that use uniquely Caribbean mixes of herbs and spices—in cooked sauces, uncooked sauces, and 'wet seasoning' blends—for an unmistakably local flair.
Treat yourself to a Classic Barbadian Sweet Potato Pie
This sweet potato dish is traditionally served on Sundays or on special occasions. The topping is stunning: pineapple slices and cherries—you have to love that. Feel free to double or triple the recipe, but I prefer this pie in small quantities, served with a bit of Onion Gravy (page 39). Ordinarily, this pie is baked in a baking pan and then cut into squares for serving, but my version calls for making individual pies.
1. Cook the sweet potatoes in boiling salted water until tender.
2. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease two 8-ounce (240 ml) ramekins.
3. Drain the sweet potatoes, add the margarine, pineapple juice, and cinnamon, and mash until smooth. Season with salt to taste.
4. Transfer to the prepared ramekins. Top each pie with a pineapple slice and a cherry and sprinkle with sugar. Broil for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned. Serve warm.

- 2 tablespoons vegan margarine
- ½ cup (120 ml) pineapple juice

Even if you aren't vegan, you will enjoy these recipes.
I found another author to add to my favourites.
I image this would be just like the Caribbean food my mother would have made, if only she had been from the Caribbean!
Very highly recommended.

So far I really like this book. I'm British Afro-caribbean and have found a little difficulty in promoting a vegan dietary lifestyle. If you're in the same position, this book if for you! The ingredients in this book tend to be easily accessible, if you live in the UK from Afro-Caribbean shops. The recipes are really good and easy to understand. What is also great about this book is the writer suggests what to pair with each recipe. The only issues with the book a is the measurements eg. 3/4 cup etc, so if you're new to cooking you may have a little difficulty. However, I find with a lot of Caribbean cooking/recipes it's all about trial and error.
Favorite Recipes so far:
Curried potatoes and pumpkin with spanish rice
