Beef Fingers

Ever felt bored thinking about  what to eat while watching T.V.? You know like you had enough popcorn or sweetbread or the mundane fries and chicken.

lambie souse, conch souse

Lambie Souse

Lambie souse is another of our favourite souse to make on the island. A favourite of fishermen and locals alike, this somewhat aphrodisiac food is welcomed by all men, young and old.
