Eat Caribbean: The Best of Caribbean Cookery


by Virginia Burke

Whether you're a West Indian looking for tasty new ideas or a novice looking for something out of the ordinary, this marvelous new collection of regional recipes will inspire you to Eat Caribbean.


I actually picked up this book in St. Maarten at the hotel gift shop and immediately began cooking from it! 98% of the ingredients are available in your regular grocery store, a few specialty type items you can get at a gourmet store in your town or on the net. There are also sections within the book that speak to the Caribbean traditions and traditions of the meals and ingredients. Also - each recipe tells you from what Caribbean island it hails from. The recipes are easy to make and totally caribbean and incredibly awesome! So much so that I'm here on Amazon ordering one for my Dad for Fathers Day. If you like to cook - you'll love this book. If you don't like to cook, you'll love it even more because it is a great intro into cooking with dishes you won't be able to mess up! Enjoy!!

The colorful cover caught my eye, but it's the creative and easy-to-prepare recipes inside that keep me coming back to this book regularly. This cookbook goes way beyond jerk, or adding a little pineapple or coconut to a dish. Author Virginia Burke is true to the cultural origins of dishes and the recipes are presented in an easy-to-understand and unpretentious manner. To my surprise, finding the ingredients in the U.S. has been quite managable. I have seen this author on TV once, and think she deserves a cooking show of her own. How fun it would be to take a weekly culinary trip through the islands with Virginia Burke.
