This will be a professionally designed and printed cook book! The majority of the funds raised will allow me to realize the first step in my dream of publishing a series of four cookbooks that includes recipes and stories I experienced growing up in a Caribbean home. I really want to share these recipes and stories with the world so everyone can get a taste of the same traditions and rich cultural heritage I had experienced in growing up.

Most of the content is written and ready to go, loaded with tips and techniques I'm asking my amazing Caribbean and global community to come on board with me and help me get this one of a kind of Caribbean Cookbook published as soon as possible.

Let's talk about the book!
In Mastering The Art of Caribbean Cooking Volume 1, you will be getting over 125 recipes, every one of these recipes has been truly tested, not only by us, but by friends, family members and clients who have attended our cooking classes and dinner parties and other events.

I printed out recipes, bought ingredients and handed it over to everyone, they created recipes, it was tested, and if we didn't like it or it wasn't up to par on what it should be, it was created all over again, taste tested by us and random people off the streets, we did ask for honest opinions and boy did we get some honest ones. So you can rest assured that these recipes in this cookbook wasn't just tested by one person and it's not recipes that we found online and inserted into a cookbook, OH NO! you are getting the real deal here.
I've also included a section in the book with tons of tips and techniques used in a Caribbean kitchen. Lots of secrets will be revealed, you will know first-hand exactly what type of fresh and dry herbs are used in Caribbean cooking.

(NO! It's just not coconut and pineapple)

Ackee and Saltfish Bruschetta

Ingredient substitution for hard to find items or if you reside outside of the Caribbean is included for most recipes.

All measurements are included in every recipe, which is very different from our grandmothers and parents cooking. You know what I mean, they never really cooked with measurements, they eyeballed everything.

Now that we have all grown up and try to replicate the foods we grew up eating, we are finding out  we truly don't have a clue on how much water, beans or even coconut milk goes in a pot of pelau or peas and rice.
In Mastering The Art of Caribbean Cooking, it is all laid out for you.

Mastering The Art of Caribbean Cooking will be one of the best Caribbean Cookbooks you will have come across in a long time, and this is only Volume One in a series of four volumes.
