You will love these foods, do not delay! (Did I mention the gorgeous photos?)
I do recommend that you buy the habanero or Scotch Bonnet pepper (used in recipes), use gloves, and remove the seeds and membranes inside the pepper. This will reduce the heat of the pepper. If the food is too spicy for you, you can always reduce the amount of the pepper. The pepper adds a unique flavoring to the dish. 1/2 of a pepper goes a long way!
The dishes in this book are spicy (lots of spices) and very aromatic. It reminds me of Indian food but it is really different than that since some use thyme, basil, and green onions which are not used in Indian food. Really, I have never eaten this kind of meal before. This is a unique experience for me to try this kind of dish and I LIKE it! I am going to try the jerk seasonings and the rest of the recipes. I am so EXCITED and so glad I pre-ordered it.
The pictures really helped since I kind of want to know how the dish look like. Some have step-by-step pictures on how to make it.
This is a really GREAT cookbook and I highly recommend it.
Three months and roughly two-dozen recipes later, I conclude that Taymer Mason's book has been a hit-or-miss affair for me. I will proceed to elaborate on what I like and dislike from the book:
Being a lover of spices, I am happy to see that Taymer has remained faithful and utilized the many wonderful spices ever-present in island cooking, for example, the ever-popular (and my personal fav), Thyme.Read more ›
We attended family functions and were stuck eating the obligatory salad or some overcooked vegetables. Our cries for inclusion were met with "I don't know how to cook your food." Or "What do you expect when you give up meat and fish, I can't understand why you just don't eat a little fish it isn't like it is really meat".
Those days are now over! Taymer's new vegan cookbook has hit the shelves. In this vibrantly illustrated book she has provided authentic Caribbean dishes including Bajan Coucou and `Tofish' and the `more-ish' Grenadian Oil down, all with the same flavour and punch as the original dishes minus the animal ingredients.
Caribbean Vegan demystifies Caribbean cooking for the novice whilst bringing back familiar favourites for the Caribbean veggie foodie. From `Lucian' Bakes to Trini doubles and rotis, with a stop in the French West Indies for `sauce au chien' and eggplant accras the diversity of the islands is well represented.
With Thanksgiving (for North Americans) and Christmas fast approaching this book is the ideal present it will give the gracious host ideas on how to cater for their vegetarian guests and would be the ideal presents for veggies, friends & family of veggies (loads of ideas on what to prepare when we are coming over) and those interested in Caribbean food.
As a Barbadian, vegetarian and tester of this book I wholeheartedly give it two thumbs up!!!
