This is an excellent well-written, beautifully illustrated cook book! Having grown up in the Caribbean the dishes in this book are all familiar and ones I have been cooking all my life - not from written recipes, but from memory - and it wasn't always easy to remember all the specific ingredients or methods. This cookbook saves me the trouble. It is awesome. It takes me back to my childhood and I can now share my favorite dishes with my 12yr old daughter who is just learning to cook. The author(s) go beyond just providing recipes and pictures... they include Notes on Metric conversion for solid and Liquid measure, oven temperatures (in Celsius and Fahrenheit) for mixtures and deep frying, a nutriion index for each dish right on the same page of each recipe, a table of contents, an index, and a comprehensive glossary of terms for those who may not know what "Kuchela", "Chip-Chip" or "Phulourie" is. They even include guidelines for substituions, converting to microwave cooking and a table of abbreviations for measurements. It's all in there. I do wish, however, that they had included a bit of the history of Caribbean cuisine and the sources of the many influences found in it. With that said, the pages are glossy and not flimsy. The recipes are simple and showcase the diveristy of Caribbean cuisine which reflects our african, indian, chinese, japanese, middle-eastern and european heritage. I received this as a gift from my mother (she probably got tired of my "how-to" calls) and the first time I flipped through it I literally squealed with delight at seeing all my childhood favorites. This is a Gem for anyone who is interested in or loves Caribbean food.

It's the type of cookbook with which one cannot go wrong. There are different types of recipes reflecting the diverse ethnicity of Trinidad and Tobago. There are also recipes for diabetics and weight watchers. The colour photographs add a nice touch and allows one to see what the end product of the recipe looks like.

It's definetly a good buy.

When visiting my mum and family in Florida, they always cook Trinidadian dishes for me and when visiting one of my aunts and commented on her 'cook up' she told me that she was fed up of asking and not remembering how to cook food from Trinidad (she is in her sixties). So to help her remember, her daughter brought over from Trinidad, the original to this cook book, which was quite tatty and beaten up, but you could still read. When ariving back from Florida, I immediately went on line to find this cook book and with a little research, found it on this site. I am so pleased that I got it and it takes pride of place in my kitchen, and when I got my Tawah, there was no stoppping me and now I am queen of roti!!!! Excellent receipe book with clear instructions on how get the taste. My dad actually sat for half an hour going through this book and I am secretly getting him one, as I know he will appreciate it. Well recommended.

... you can find it elsewhere for cheaper than the current prices on Amazon. I purchased it on Amazon in 2005 for about $47 so it is outrageous to me to pay much more than that.

I spent about 11 years in Trinidad as a child then in other parts of the Caribbean. Somehow, as an adult, I ended far far north of there with no access to roti and other wonderful Trini foods. When I came across this book, I was very excited. And I am happy to say 7 years later, that I LOVE this book. Whenever I am homesick for that food, I can make it. There are a few ingredient substitutions I have to do (such as swiss chard and spinach for callalloo) but the result is close to the real thing and my appetite is happily rewarded.

Like many a reviewer I am a Trini that living away from home. My mother, aunts and in-laws just make Trini food. I have always needed the receipe and directions. The recipes are easy to follow & tasty...but I have found mysef adding a little of this and that to make the dishes taste as I remember, but that is how cooking works. The book is easy to follow- I have bought many a cookbook promising me the recipes of my childhood, only to find one or two in a book of hundreds. This cookbook one delivers- I have been cooking like a Trini since I came home...infact my macaroni pie was so good my husband asked if I'd improved upon his mother's recipe...that is probably the biggest compliment I have ever got from my Triniman!!! I did add a little something extra to the recipe in the book...but it was good as written too. I bought mine on the last trip home and it was recommended to me by the lady in the book store. I purchased it for $125 TT so I was a bit taken aback at the pricing on Amazon...all I can think is some one here didn't do the conversions from TT dollars to US dollars. If you are not a Trini but love Trini foods this IS YOUR COOKBOOK!!!

Amazon must be posting the sticker price that was in $TTD as the for sale price. The copy I just bought last month from Trinidad was $125TTD.. equivalent of about $19-20 US/CDN.

Haven't had the chance to try any of the recipes yet but they look pretty straight forward. Can't wait!
