Good book of culture, bad book for cooking!
24 September 2019
If you want a book about brief Caribbean culture in food then this book is great, if you want a cook book then you should look elsewhere. The cooking in this book is as brief as the back of a pot noodle. The ingredients in the jerk chicken for example are: jerk seasoning.... cheers for that I don’t know why I didn’t think of that myself! The point of Caribbean food is intense flavour but when I cooked the spicy herb prawn noodles the ingredients ratio was all wrong as if they hadn’t even bothered checking to see if it was actually enough themselves(could taste the noodles over the sauce because there was so little sauce). Real shame as reading both their story’s they sound like nice guys!
