Labor Day in the United States is the official end-of-summer celebration filled with family gatherings and barbecues. But when you fire up the grill this year, why not do it Caribbean style. We have some delicious recipes from some great Caribbean cooks that are sure to make you happy .
Houston was back at it again, showcasing Caribbean cuisine and culture at the 4th Annual Caribbean Rum Fest. This eclectic event celebrates and promotes the history and culture of Caribbean rum to the Houston community. Rum Fest hosted a variety of artists and performances – both local and international – and cooking demonstrations (and tastings!) by Caribbean chefs.
There are some dishes in Caribbean cuisine that can as easily be enjoyed for breakfast, as for lunch or dinner. Chicken souse is one. I’m the designated Souse Chef in our house and, for a time, regularly cooked a pot of chicken souse every Saturday evening. My wife – the designated Pastry Chef – usually bakes a pan of Johnny Cake to go along with it.
