My family lived in Trinidad for decades, so growing up I got the best of both worlds in terms of foods. My mom can make a mean ackee and salt fish with yams or any traditional Chinese dish (no General Toa chicken here… Who is this General Tao dude anyways? =) ) But if I had to narrow down one favorite thing I love the most would be her BBQ meat bun and can humbly say that anyone who has ever tried can agree its delicious. So after months of busting my mom’s chops to teach us… she finally agreed this past weekend. I think she was more reluctant to show us cause it involves A LOT of time and was more worried about our schedule.
For everyone reading this, don’t ever take for granted how awesome homemade food is… may it be Gnocchi or Pho or Melomakarona…. I think it’s so important to learn and to carry on tradition. As always… I rather tell story through pictures.
