Cookin and Cruizin Caribbean Style - Cooking delicious meals in the galley or tiny kitchen.
The Cookin and Cruzin Caribbean Style Cookbook explores the secrets of Caribbean cooking using the local bounty of ingredients and introduces the reader to the island's cultural stories through food.
Included in this first cookbook in a series are more than 70 recipes collected while sailing throughout the Virgin Islands-St. Thomas, St. John, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke. The recipes are accompanied by narrative texts about the Caribbean culinary story Marvelle discovered while cruising the islands.
Particularly useful are the practical tips for preparing classic Caribbean dishes in a galley or small space. She showcases African Caribbean recipes that have been passed down for generations and local seafood. She shares her favorite seafood recipes (using lobster, red snapper, crab, shrimp and conch) and the lesser-known side of Caribbean cuisine-Callalo Soup, Fungi and Fish, and Crab and Rice.
The Cookin and Cruzin Caribbean Style Cookbook contains Caribbean style recipes for appetizers, soups, meat, fish and seafood, "provisions" aka vegetable sides, and dessert. Some of these recipes have many layers of flavor but are easy to follow and include "cook's tips".
Additional information includes suggested wine pairings and menus from the recipes in the book.
This cookbook will appeal to: cooks looking for exciting new recipes that are easily prepared in a tiny kitchen; folks interested in African, Afro-Caribbean cuisine; foodies who are curious about Afro-Caribbean cuisine; and everyone who cooks.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this cookbook will go to the Autism Centre in Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
