I have a collection of these Time-Life Foods of the World cookbooks published in the 70's. You absolutely cannot go wrong with any of them, this one included. These are narrative cookbooks, which means that along with the scrumptious easy-to-duplicate recipes, comes a history of the country and the way they eat, a peek into daily family life, maps of the area, and amusing anecdotes from real people about the foods of the country and how they are eaten and prepared. Five stars is not enough.

This is book 2 in my search for Caribbean cookbooks to add to my cookbooks collections. I'm not quite sure what to make of this book. It's 208 pages but only has 85 recipes. There is a lot of writing about the Caribbean, it's history, customs, and cuisine. The author also talks about her travels there. Recipes are placed throughout the book. While some of them do seem to be authentic Caribbean recipes, they just did not strike me as being food that a typical Caribbean family would eat on a regular basis. There were some staples, stamp and go (salt fish cakes), bakes, callaloo, ackee and saltfish, etc..., but I did not feel the urge to try any of them. Namely because many of the recipes lack traditional Caribbean spices and seasoning. Some of the recipes call for "chili peppers". To not make a distinction between the more generic "chili" pepper and the forms of it that are actually used in the Caribbean in a book with such detailed research and historical information confuses me.

The pictures are dated but do a nice job of illustrating Caribbean life. There is a picture of a Trinidadian family around a table set with a mouthwatering plate of Pelau but no Pelau recipe to be found. Instead, the recipes in that section start with Deep Fried Plaintain Rings with Spiced Ground Beef Filling. I was onboard with that until I got to the part where you dip the filled plaintain ring in an egg wash before frying it. The front of the book mentions a recipe booklet that accompanies the book that has the 85 recipes plus another 58. This was missing from my library copy but I would suggest buying that booklet if you are just looking for a Caribbean cookbook and not a book about the Caribbean that just happens to have some recipes in it.
