What's Cooking in Guyana
Carnegie School of Home Economics

The original idea for What's Cooking in Guyana was the inspiration of the staff and students at the Carnegie School of Home Economics situated in the country's capital city, Georgetown. Originally published in 1994, this fascinating and practical recipe book has proved a great success (both locally and amongst the Guyanese Diaspora) and this second edition, with a new four-colour format, has been completely revised and updated to coincide with the Carnegie School's 70th Anniversary celebrations.

The food of the Caribbean represents a fascinating fusion of cultures. The islands boast influences from Africa, East India, China, South America, Europe, South East Asia, Syria and the Lebanon. Each of these cultures has left its own unique mark on the food of the region evolving in their own way to produce a new type of fusion cuisine that is mouth-watering, spicy and delicious.

Modern Caribbean Cuisine

Modern Caribbean Cuisine demonstrates the new directions into which Caribbean cooking is now moving. While influences from all over the world have been assimilated, an essential integrity remains, and these recipes could only have come from the islands of the Caribbean. Fusion has long been a feature of Caribbean cuisine: traditional recipes represent a rich inheritance from African, Indian, and European ancestors.

In this collection, Wendy Rahamut emphasizes the importance of using indigenous ingredients to create a “fresher, tastier, spicy and delicious cuisine.” The result is a celebration of Caribbean flavors as they are today. Modern Caribbean Cuisine takes us on a gastronomic reverie—a food fusion experience of

    • mouthwatering snacks and appetizers
    • spicy and hearty soups
    • a wide variety of attractive salads
    • exciting ways of preparing local seafood
    • traditional and modern meat and poultry recipes
    • an imaginative collection of rice recipes
    • wonderful vegetable preparations
    • spectacularly exotic desserts
    • scrumptious cake and bread recipes
    • piquant hot sauces and condiments

Each section of the book features a range of easy-to-follow recipes and enticing photography, and is introduced with a useful short discussion of the role and importance of the various ingredients and their place in Caribbean kitchens.

Celebrate Food

The new book, Celebrate Food, is a totally new cookbook. “Celebrate Food! is not an update of Multicultural Cuisine of T&T and the Caribbean. This book stands on its own and complements the previous books. It reflects fusion cooking with Caribbean flair and international dishes as well.

Celebrate Food! is being launched this year in celebration of the school’s 100th anniversary. It doesn’t repeat any recipes from the other cookbooks but rather features new local and international dishes which have recently become popular in the Caribbean.

Celebrate Food! contains over 125 recipes and is divided into five sections: appetizers; entrees; sides; desserts; and beverages. Recipes are colour-coded, listed in alphabetical order and many offer small tips on presentation and time-saving techniques. Information on the preparation time, estimated cooking time and level of difficulty in preparation are also included. Napkin folding techniques and information on various herbs and spices are provided in a comprehensive table format.

Trinidad and Tobago
Terrific and Tranquil

Trinidad and Tobago is one of the most cosmopolitan countries in the world. Since the arrival of Amerindian peoples more than ten thousand years ago, this twin-island, Caribbean nation has become a melting pot of different races, traditions, customs and religions. The Amerindians, followed by European colonizers and settlers from Africa, India, China and the Middle East, have all influenced its diverse and unique culture. Known as “the land of the hummingbird” (the name given to the islands by the Amerindians)

Trinidad and Tobago is the birthplace of calypso music and the steel drum – two of the most essential ingredients in the globally-renowned Trinidad Carnival. Trinidad and Tobago: Terrific and Tranquil is a spectacular book comprising more than two hundred photographic images which depict life in this diverse and vibrant nation.
