Active Caribbean Cookery Book Review – “Taste of the Caribbean” written by Rosamund Grant
Caribbean cookery book with sensational sizzling recipes from around the Caribbean
Pubished by Southwater, an imprint of Anness Publishing Ltd
This is a Caribbean cookery book review of a gem titled Taste of the Caribbean written by Rosamund Grant. It contains recipes from the islands of the Caribbean, but especially from Jamaica, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Barbados and Trinidad.
This is a very TASTY Caribbean cookery book containing 70 recipes from all over the Caribbean, with step-by-step ‘how to’ instructions, and mouth-watering colour photography (275 photographs).
This book is a great introduction to Caribbean cuisine and, as well as mouth-watering Caribbean recipes, it also contains recipes for cocktails and punches, advice on special ingredients and techniques, plus detailed nutritional information for every recipe so dishes can be integrated into special eating regimes or diets.
The introduction is interesting – in this the author writes some snippets on feasts and festivals, new crops, Creole cooking, street food and snacks as well as touching on the early history of the Caribbean, Spanish possessions, and the rum tradition – as she says “Not much goes on in the Caribbean that doesn’t involve rum”.
The colour photography in all the sections is excellent (we always think photographs “sell”, don’t you?). The different foodie chapters in this book are: snacks and soups, fish and shellfish, meat and poultry, vegetarian dishes and salads, side dishes and grains, and desserts and drinks.
Can we suggest you start the book at the very back pages… that’s where you’ll find the cocktails and punches recipes. Then you’ll be able to mix yourself a Majito, Cuba Libre, Demerara rum punch or Caribbean cream stout punch as you settle down to flick through the pages – guaranteed to tantalize your Caribbean taste buds.
