Trinidad and Tobago



Trinidad and Tobago

Located just off the coast of Venezuela, the islands of Trinidad and its laidback neighbor, Tobago, encompass one extraordinary Caribbean nation. Boisterous and cosmopolitan Trinidad is about the size of Delaware, dwarfing tiny, idyllic Tobago to the north. The birthplace of limbo, steel drums, and calypso music, and the annual host of one of the world’s most spectacular Carnival celebrations, Trinidad and Tobago’s culture is vibrant, joyous, and wholly unique. Much of the food of Trinidad and Tobago is a reflection of the country’s ethnically diverse population. East Indian influence can be found in foods like roti, flatbread filled with ingredients such as curried meat, chickpeas, or mangoes. And, while the Chinese population is small, Chinese food is immensely popular with Trinbagonians. Perhaps the most famous culinary treat in Trinidad and Tobago is the street food called “Bake and Shark” – fried shark meat served inside fried bread. Not to be missed if visiting the islands, Bake and Shark is a uniquely Trinbagonian delight.

About me:
My mom is Venezuelan, and my dad is Trinidadian. I have a little from both cultural sides when it comes to my culinary taste... something which i took for granted until i married. Then i realized not everyone appreciates your particular tastes for food. So i needed to bridge that gap between myself and my husband by finding tastes we could both appreciate. Of course, one of the big things we still need to overcome is my dislike for handling/cooking meat (as i was raised mostly vegetarian), whereas my husband simply loves meat. Still trying to convert him to my side... haha.. but i am still learning. Who knows, one day, i might take the plunge, and start cooking some good old meat. just not yet ;-)
