The Trini Food Project

Sorry for the lack of updates for all three of you who read this.  I decided to give myself a challenge while here, to eat my way through Trinidad's local dishes (Ohh how I punish myself).  Thing is, Trinidad has a ton of foods that are either only really eaten on the island, or are from other cultures but have taken on totally unique forms in Trinidad.  So with that, I present a  list of foods I will eat my way through, living vicariously for you, the reader.  I consulted with the "Trini gourmet" to get a good, representative list.  My goal is to have each dish a couple of times before I post on it, but some of the things that are harder to find (oddly, like doubles) I may only try once before putting up.  So with no further introduction, here's the list, including a link to the first post I wrote on food :). 

As I try the things I'll come back here and update the list, and hopefully I'll make some of you want to come and visit Trinidad :).

1. Bake and shark/Fish (coming soon :))
