Sainsbury’s regional-cookery titles contain authentic recipes from a variety of culinary traditions. In The Cooking of the Caribbean, Elisabeth Lambert Ortiz has recreated many of the simple and tasty dishes that characterise the cuisine of these exotic islands. Caribbean cuisine, influenced by colonisers and immigrants from Europe, Asia, Africa and South America, is an adventure in cooking. This distinctive cuisine combines native foods with ingredients and culinary techniques from all over the world, giving an endless variety of wonderful flavours. Using typical ingredients – chillies, allspice, rum, coconuts, bananas and sweet potatoes — and beautifully illustrated in full colour, these recipes provide a delightful taste of sunshine.
