Hay guys, I am so happy that you’re reading my blog even if it’s just one person. I am currently still working on my cookbook. I have literally cooked my heart out. I have about twenty more recipes left to add. I cooked every popular Caribbean recipe and African recipe that you could think of. My herb potato roti came out tasting so good , it taste’s better than any other roti I have ever had. The channa filling also tastes spot on authentic. I challenged myself to even create a no fuss ingera bread to serve with three of my amazing meatless meat sauces. The bread has all of the qualities of traditional ingera bread without being time consuming. I even perfected my cassava pone recipe that tastes just like the traditional one I grew up eating in Barbados. I have to say that I challenged myself with this book. I wanted to create a book that was filled with easy to find ingredients and straightforward recipes.
Even though my book is Caribbean and African I still wanted it to be accessible and not annoying. There’s nothing I loath more than a book with thirty ingredients for each recipe,those are the books that you hardly cook from. I mean they look good on the outside but collect dust. I want my book to be different and it is. I have been vegan for nine years now and have amassed a great wealth of knowledge that I have crammed into the book.
I have grown so much in my personal life and my finances couldn’t be better to be frank. However I am going to push through and I have a strong feeling about 2017.
I have this fiery spirit that has risen up inside of me. A confidence that has come from beating on my craft and emerging as someone who is truly a talented vegan chef.
I have cooked so much. I have a video to show a table full of food that I cooked in one night for the cookbook. However I will show you guys after it’s launched.
Please keep praying for me if your heart is sincere. It’s not easy following your passion.
