Good recipes ... One needs to have an Idea however of how these foods should taste that way when preparing you can adjust the recipe when needed.
A lightweight choice.

This is a very small cookbook with slightly less than 100 pages of recipes. While there are some classic Caribbean recipes (Pigeon Peas & Rice, Meat Patties (albeit using a packaged turnover dough and baked in the oven- most Caribbean meat patties are fried), Pepperpot, Chicken & Rice Stew, Callaloo), many of the recipes seemed to be the author's version of foods that she ate while working in the Caribbean. The recipes are heavily Puerto Rican and the entree sections are very short. The beef and chicken section is only 10 pages,the fish section 8 pages, the vegetable and grains section 10 pages. The rest of the book is dedicated to salads, drinks, desserts, appetizers, sauces and marinades. If you're looking for a book that is good for dabbling with a Caribbean inspired recipe now and then, this seems like a good choice. I plan to make the Pineapple Flan recipe since it sounds like it would be really good. However, I would not recommend this book for anyone that is serious about learning Caribbean cooking and plans to cook Caribbean food on a regular basis.
