“Covering Bajan, Jamaican, Trinidadian, Creole, and other cuisines, the patties, pies, and rice dishes here make this collection stand out from other Caribbean-inspired cookbooks. Mason also includes a section on how to make alternative, gluten-free flours.”—Library Journal, starred review
“Seriously mouthwatering food from the islands!”—Post Punk Kitchen
“Mason’s herbaceous sauces, savory dry rubs, and piquant spices have elevated our everyday ingredients into unforgettable, island-inspired dishes.”—Veg News
“Get a chance to explore these island flavors for the price of a book instead of a plane ticket—and bring the carnival to the kitchen and the sunshine to your taste buds. A compendium of Caribbean dishes reflecting a diverse range of ethnic influences, ideas, and inspirations, this book appeals to current food trends and lifestyle choices, and is for those embracing a plant based and cruelty-free diet.
