Raw Chocolate Brownies

There is this store in St. Lucia called Mega J. It’s one of those colossal wholesale stores where you can buy everything from booze, to paint, to cat food, but it all comes in bulk. I don’t go there often, but when I do, I stock up on nuts….lots of nuts. Last time I went,…

Autumn Oats

Yes, you got me, I’m jumping on the Autumn food bandwagon. And yes, you got me, it’s not cold and golden leaves are not lining the pavements. Still, that doesn’t mean that those of us lucky enough to be in hotter climates don’t crave warming pumpkin-based dishes! In fact, pumpkin grows in the Caribbean all…

Dairy-Free Passion Fruit Panna Cotta

I enjoy likening people to fruits. It’s a fun game. If I was a fruit, I would definitely be a passion fruit. Most blatantly, I am a very passionate person. But also, I am punchy and certainly not to everyone’s taste. You will either love me or hate me. Hopefully those who love me find…

Sweet Potato Hash Browns

I was absolutely not brought up consuming hash browns on a Sunday morning with my full English breakfast. It just wasn’t something that featured in our house. And although I occasionally enjoy a traditional hash brown, I’ve never developed much of a love for them. Now, however, I have discovered the super-charged, healthier and 100%…

Crunchy Quinoa Slaw with Avocado, Chilli and Garlic Roasted Chickpeas

In all honesty, this absolutely mouth-watering salad was the result of nothing more than limited fridge rations and a growling stomach. I’m quite a meticulous person; I like to plan, over-think, edit. Although I would love to be more spontaneous, it doesn’t come naturally to me…(unless we’re talking about quitting my job and leaving the…

Coconut and Lucuma Porridge with Chia Berry Jam

For those of you who live in St. Lucia, I apologise for this cheeky recipe, as I use lucuma powder that I brought over from the UK! However, if you’re savvy with shipping stuff over from the States, you can absolutely get lucuma online. Otherwise, I would suggest you plant a lucuma tree in the…

A Flying Visit to Mustique

Well blow me down. This tiny little island in the Grenadines has got to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. Seriously. There were countless breath-taking moments looking across endless, white, palm-scattered beaches and the aquamarine tranquility of the Caribbean Sea. I felt like somebody had thrown me into a postcard….

Orange Papaya Salad

This is my Caribbean take on Thai green papaya salad that materialised from the fact that papayas ripen too quickly over here to stick to the ‘green’ aspect. It tastes totally delicious, and by using the papaya at a slightly riper stage than usual, the recipe doesn’t require as much, if any sugar, in the…
