Awesome recipes and stories that make you feel like you are Guyanese raised.
on January 6, 2017
This cookbook is so awesome, my Guyanese mother in law bought one for herself and her daughter. Awesomely written, great narration of Guyanese culture as well as other Caribbean cultures highlighted by recipe. Makes me feel like I know a little more about my spouse's Guyanese culture and upbringing. The recipes are well written as co-signed by my mother in law. I tried her Bakes recipe- came out perfect. Though do watch out, some of the recipes may be written using fresh items that are not readily available in the states. For example, the sorrel reccipe calls for 1lb of sorrel flowers- In NY we have dried sorrel. the recipe doesn't state which to use and when I made it my MIL and FIL said it was too strong and needed to be drastically watered down. Otherwise, a lovely and well written cookbook with gorgeous pictures.
