Simply Trini Cooking an Introduction

Trini Cooking and Recipes Galore
Some of the recipes have very deep traditional roots and many a Trinidadian can attest to them. From the numerous rotis, curried dishes, and sweet meats; to our pastelles, pelau, or just a plain country style provision with salted meat like pigtail, smoked herring and saltfish (salted cod). These dishes have forged us into a nation that reflects us as a warm, happy, friendly people and evidently it always comes out in our food.
But, being a very dynamic society, when it comes to food you, there are lots of fusion cooking going on and their recipes are being documented here with some of my cooking experiments and adventures as well. Our society is a very accepting one where we are always willing to try food from different cultures. From Japanese, Filipino and Thai to Italian, American and Middle Eastern.
Trini Cooking is Dynamic
In some peculiar way though, they will eventually be absorbed into our Trinidadian cooking culture with creative local twists using our local seasonings and cooking techniques making them truly trini-rized. All in all, the dishes are simple, tasty and mouthwatering.
We are truly blessed with the abundance of local food from the sea and on the land. As a born Trinidadian, it is my wish and desire that these local resources will be put to use, to bring about a local food consciousness that will make our people proud. Thus the underlying purpose for the site.
