Dive into this feast of tasty facts about the food and cooking of the Caribbean. Learn all about the climate, history, religion, and culture of these islands and how they have influenced Caribbean cuisine. Read this book and discover:

  • dishes like dukunu, “stamp and go,” and “dip and fall back”
  • a fruit called ackee, which tastes like scrambled eggs when cooked
  • islands such as Haiti and Martinique, where you might get served giant frogs’ legs

The book contains three recipes with clear, step-by-step instructions, so you can try cooking up some popular Caribbean dishes for yourself.
