The culinary inspiration for this book comes from John Lyons’s all-abiding love of food and cooking as an added fulfilment to his diversely creative life. The recipes reflect the cultural fusion of the many nationalities that have played a part in the history of his native Trinidad and Tobago. The dishes range from the homely, traditional fare of his mother and grandmother, through to new recipes which are the results of his experimentation.
Cook-up in a Trini Kitchen is a real feast of a book, not only for those who enjoy good food and cooking, it will also delight lovers of fine art, poetry and story-telling.
