Ainsley Harriott is nothing short of a cookery legend; a pioneer in quick and easy home cooking, he has hosted some of the UK's most popular culinary series. His love of food and people, together with his natural curiosity and accessible recipes, make him the quintessential travelling gastronome and the perfect person to go back to his roots and explore the Caribbean. Ainsley is best known for his BBC cooking shows Can't Cook, Won't Cook and Ready Steady Cook.
Like the spectacular islands it’s inspired by – from the wildly majestic nature island of Dominica, to the spice island of Grenada and beyond - this inspirational, easy-to-follow Caribbean cookbook exudes zesty vitality. This tantalising cookbook features all eighty recipes from Ainsley Harriott’s recent small screen culinary quest around Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, Barbados, St Lucia, Dominica and Antigua, each of them accompanied by mouth-watering food photography, and inspiring images of the islands’ stunning landscapes. With sections covering light bites, veggie and vegan dishes, fish, meat, and desserts, the recipes include Caribbean classics like Jamaican patties, jerk chicken, Johnny cakes, ackee and saltfish, curried goat, and rice and peas, alongside lesser-known island specialties, among them Dominica’s calypso chicken and Tobago’s curried crab. There are plenty of luscious drink recipes too, from how to concoct the perfect rum punch, to my personal favourite - a spicy sorrel cocktail. The fresh flavours make most of the recipes perfect for summer, but I know I’ll also reach for this book on dark winter days when rays of revitalising culinary sunshine are much needed, plus the heartier recipes are ideal for colder climes (e.g. the one-pot peanut butter chicken stew and pork medallions with rum, cream and nutmeg sauce). In a matter of days I’ve discovered lots of recipes I’ll use over and over again, and I’m looking forward to feasting through the whole book.
