It's Carnival in Trinidad & Tobago and we are celebrating our African heritage and its lasting impact on our food and culture. From dishes like callaloo, pelau, coo coo, breadfruit oil down, stewed peas, soups, buljol, salt fish and provision to hearty snacks like accra, souse, corn soup, boiled & roasted corn, fried & roasted bakes to sweet treats like sweet bread, tamarind balls, sugar cake, toolum, paw paw (papaya) balls and chip chip, our African heritage is vibrant in our food landscape.
Here are some recipes from the amazing Homemade Zagat! Enjoy!
