Enjoy these savory, sweet, and always authentic edible treasures.
The recipes in this book highlight seasonal bounties and four major Caribbean flavors, resulting in a basketful of healthy recipes (many vegetarian), which the author refers to as “edible treasures.” This innovative cookbook presents a new way to look at the four seasons through four ingredients that are integral to Caribbean flavors and culture but available everywhere. Coconut, ginger, shrimp, and rum–each boast unique health benefits, but are still simple and fundamental ingredients that will take any cook through the year, and especially highlight seasonal ingredients!
The book is divided into four seasons, and each of those is divided into “Light Fare,” “Mains,” “To Sip,” and “Sweets.” Recipes include:
White Coconut Gazpacho
Rum-Buttered Jerk Wings
Spring Pea and Ginger Risotto
Rhubarb and Ginger Challah
Salsa Verde Coconut Rice
Grilled Strawberry Ginger Shortcake
Garlicky Parmesan Shrimp and Fava Bean Ravioli
Poached Pear Negroni
