I am English married to a Trinidadian, living in Trinidad at present, but own a house on Tobago.
I have two children my son is 23 living in Trinidad, my daughter is 22 living in England.
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything, I love fish, chicken, beef etc, I do not eat pork joint/chops as I don't like the taste, but I do eat bacon and ham, people find this strange.
I have cooked all of my life and did a professional chef course at a College in England a few years ago.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to make many novelty birthday cakes a few years ago, people loved them, I have not made any since I have been living in Trinidad though.
I make a very good meatball and spaghetti dish, and my macaroni pie is good as well as lots of other things, I mentioned the two dishes above as my son is a very fussy eater but if I make these dishes I know he will eat them.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
I cannot get my rice to do anything I want it to, I have tried everything, I carry on cooking it and my poor husband never complains.
