A Trinidadian Escape

You are invited to Cooking With Mama’s 'Trinidadian Escape' supperclub and cooking experience! With Mama Lee as your Captain, leave the chilly winds of Britain behind for one night and sail to the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) for an evening of tantalizing flavours that conjure up thoughts of island sunshine. Trinidadian food is a melting pot of flavours from African to European, Middle Eastern to Native American. Mama Lee will teach you how to recreate the flavors and colours of Trinidadian cooking. Her meals are perfect for entertaining guests or cooking for one!


MENU

In curating this menu, Mama Lee has been inspired by the food she remembers eating from her Auntie's kitchen and by Trini street foods popular during Carnival season.

Welcome nibbles

Starter – The Ultimate Trini Street Food! 

Buljol (warm salad of salted codfish, tomato, onion, avocado and a kick of red pepper) and Doubles (light and soft flatbread fried until golden brown served with delicious curried chickpeas) 

Main – The National Dish of Trinidad & Tobago! 

Chicken Pelau (one-pot, rice-based dish with chicken and Mama Lee's special green seasoning) OR Vegetarian Pelau (vegetarian version of the same dish).

Side: Decadent T&T Potato Salad based on the secret recipe from Mama Lee's auntie

Dessert: Juicy Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

As with all our supperclub/cooking experiences, you will have the opportunity to partake in some of the cooking with Mama Lee's expertise to guide you!

      I want to learn things like crab back etc...and maybe we can do a pastelle making session if you're up to it? It's always more fun with more than one person for that!

      Sounds so yum!! Such a shame you can't make it to this class, I'll have to consult with Mama Lee about our next session and pastelle making :)
