Turquoise oceans, warm sultry nights, intoxicating music and fantastic food - we could all do with a little more of the Carribean in our lives and this unique cookbook shows you how to recreate its unforgettable scents and flavours in your home kitchen. Suzanne & Michelle Rousseau are two well-travelled twin sisters who grew up in Jamaica and whose food is influenced by all the islands in the Carribean, as well as Asia and Italy and England and Spain - a true 'Mix Up and Blenda' as the Jamaicans would say! The result is this wonderful collection of recipes - full of spices and seasonings and freshness and creativity: Light salads (Plantain with Avocado, Coriander & Manchego); Simple Dinners (Jerked Salmon with Fresh Fruit Salsa); Sunday Bests (Roast Pork with Crackling & Rum Sauce); Comfort Food (Sweet Potato Gratin, Pumpkin Rice) and Party Tricks (Rum-Flambeed Coconut prawns) that will rejuvenate your palate and have you throwing the 'sweetest fetes' in town.
Suzanne & Michelle Rousseau are the official culinary hostesses for the Jamaican Tourist Board. Former restaurateurs and current awardwinning caterers, both girls have lived and travelled widely in the Caribbean, North America, Europe and Asia.
