Provisions

The Roots of Caribbean Cooking--150 Vegetarian Recipes

By Michelle Rousseau and Suzanne Rousseau

  • Hardback
  • £25.00

A lush, modern vegetarian cookbook celebrating the bold flavors and unique ingredients of the Caribbean.

In Provisions, sisters Michelle and Suzanne Rousseau share 150 recipes that pay homage to the meals and market produce that have been farmed, sold, and prepared by Caribbean people--particularly Caribbean women--for centuries. Caribbean food is often thought of as rustic and unrefined, but these vibrant vegetarian dishes will change the way we think about this diverse, exciting, and nourishing cuisine. The pages are spiced with the sisters' fond food memories and fascinating glimpses of the islands' histories, bringing the region's culinary past together with creative recipes that represent the best of Caribbean food today.

With a modern twist on traditional island ingredients and flavors, Provisions reinvents classic dishes and presents innovative new favorites, like Ripe Plantain Gratin, Ackee Tacos with Island Guacamole, Haitian Riz Djon Djon Risotto, Oven-Roasted Pumpkin Flatbread, and Caramelized Fennel and Grilled Green Guava with Mint. Stunning full-color photographs showcase the variety of these dishes: hearty stews, easy one-pot meals, crunchy salads, flavorful pickles, preserves, and hot sauces, sumptuous desserts, cocktails, and more. At once elegant, authoritative, and accessible, Suzanne and Michelle's recipes and stories invite you to bring fresh Caribbean flavors to your table.

Biographical Notes

Sisters Michelle and Suzanne Rousseau have spent the last 20 years exploring the culture and identity of Caribbean food from their unique vantage point as Jamaican chefs and entrepreneurs. They currently serve as executive producers and hosts for the web series 'Island Potluck,' created in tandem with the Jamaica Tourist Board. After the successful international launch of their first cookbook, Caribbean Potluck, the Rousseaus made several appearances across the United States and the UK, including at cooking demos in Bloomingdales and Williams-Sonoma, as guest chefs on the UK's Sunday Brunch and CBS Atlanta's Better Show, and interviewees on NPR's 'All Things Considered.'
