Caribbean Cuisine on UKTV

“Celebrity Chef, writer and restaurateur Gary Rhodes recently spent time in Trinidad and Tobago filming segments for a Caribbean cuisine programme. The series will feature cooking and recipes from ten Caribbean countries including Jamaica, Grenada, and Trinidad, Tobago, St Lucia and Barbados and the series will be broadcast on UKTV…

…Rhodes and his crew explored some of the culinary highlights that Trinidad and Tobago has to offer. This included a river lime in Lopinot, a trip to Maracas Bay and a tour of the Chaguanas market, with top local chef Khalid Mohammed as their guide. They sampled doubles which were declared the firm favourite, closely followed by saheena and bake and shark. After the market expedition, the crew had dinner at Khalid Mohammed’s Chaud, where they feasted on the produce purchased at the market. “

Trinidad Express story.

This sounds like something I’d want to see. Especially after the disappointment of Alton Brown not making it down to Trinidad and Tobago! I wonder how much of their experience will make it to the final programme.


P.S. Thanks to Trig – this is part of Rhodes Across the Caribbean on UKTV Food.

  3. Good to see trini food reaching somewhere. I wish I could say the same about our music! I just hope there isn’t a trini food mafia brewing in the background :^)

  4. It’s a shame that Rhodes Across the Caribbean will only be seen by a handful of viewers on UKTV Food. It’s about time Caribbean cuisine was exposed to a much wider audience than unemployed daytime TV watchers and the residents of Haringey.

  5. Sounds very interesting. Too bad I can’t get uktv here in the usa. Well, maybe someone will put it on youtube. I really enjoyed when Andrew Zimmern of ‘Bizzare Foods’ visited Trini, and when Anthony Bourdain visited Jamaica on ‘No Reservations’ last year. I even recorded them on my DVR.

  7. I know what you mean about AB. I was so mad at him for not visiting Trinidad I couldn’t even watch his show.
