INDO-CARIBBEAN RECIPE CORNER
One of the major influences on the cuisine of the Caribbean came through the East Indians that arrived in the 19th century, bringing their traditions, religion & of course food. Through the years the flavors have evolved to become truly Caribbean in taste!
We've compiled some delicious Indo-Caribbean recipes from our Callaloo Box friends for you to try & enjoy!
Taste of Trini was established in September 2015 by Reshmi Rampersad when she began living in New York. She recreated recipes taught to her by her mother as a way of keeping in touch with her West Indian roots. The channel later evolved to include vlogs by Reshmi and her sister, Anandi, which showcase the lifestyle and culture of both Trinidad and Tobago and New York. The aim of the channel is to share the food and culture of Trinidad and Tobago with the rest of the world, as well as to preserve the traditions that were passed on in their family over generations.

Bhagi Pholourie & Baiganee
Today I am using a few ingredients that I received in my Callaloo Box this month. Learn how to make this simple Pholourie with a twist! I've combined Pholourie, Saheena and Baiganee in one! This will make for an epic Divali appetizer. Your guests will thank you.
Kurma is one of the most popular Indian sweets in Trinidad. It is made mostly for Divali(Diwali) or Poojas (Prayers) but you can also find it selling at many street stalls and markets.
A Note From Matthew:
Welcome to Matthew's Guyanese Cooking everyone! Through my channel I want to share all of the delectable Guyanese dishes I grew up eating and the multicultural recipes I have learned over the years with the world. Keeping my culture alive is very important to me because when the older generations are gone it is the younger generation's job to keep up the traditions that were set in place. Food not only connects me to my culture, but also to my family and memories I have shared with them. I feel so humbled when I get a comment saying that a certain dish reminds someone of their loved ones who are no longer with them. As I always say, food equals memories!
