Tastes Like Home : My Caribbean Cookbook, Paperback Book

Tastes Like Home : My Caribbean Cookbook Paperback


In Tastes Like Home Guyanese food enthusiast and blogger Cynthia Nelson, who lives in Barbados, brings readers over 100 recipes from all over the Caribbean; all of which she has tried and tested herself and served to family and friends.

But more than just recipes, Tastes Like Home is a conversation about food and how it connects and forms part of Caribbean identity.

The book is divided into two sections, a memoir section and a recipe section.

In the memoir section Cynthia shares personal memories which help us to understand Caribbean food and lifestyle.

Some of the memories focus on food, some on events or special festivals, others are just recollections about life in the Caribbean.

In the recipe section readers are treated to step by step guides on how to make roti, the perfect baked ham, Dhal puri, Christmas Cake and Coconut drops - to name a few.

Whether you are at home or abroad, near or far, Tastes Like Home is your invitation to revel in the tastes of the Caribbean.
