Caribbean Food Made Easy with Levi Roots

Caribbean Food Made Easy with Levi Roots

This BBC book is published to go along with the BBC Two series “Caribbean Food Made Easy” it contains over 100 recipes; this is a beautifully illustrated book with pictures of almost every recipe.

It starts with an introduction to the Caribbean Kitchen, describing the important ingredients, and providing alternative suggestions for any of the hard to find items.

Not all the recipes are packed with Chilli, but the Scotch Bonnet makes a good showing, one recipe I really like the look of was the “Martinique coconut chicken curry” and I will be cooking this with my daughter next week, the ingredients are all available from my local supermarket and the instructions are very clear and well written.

None of the recipes where over complicated and it is also not full of the same recipes I have seen in other Caribbean cook books over the years, in fact I think jerk is only mentioned 3 times in the book which must be a record, but when it is you get a very tasty marinade that is simple to make.

I like this book a lot, I have a very large collection of cookery books covering anything chilli and I can see myself borrowing ideas from this often.

The book is priced at £17.99 but is available from all good book shops and online at Amazon at £8.99 or less, click here to order your own copy.
