Duck with Rum (4-6)

This recipe from Guadeloupe is best made with richly flavoured dark rum from the French Islands, but any good dark rum will do. This is from ” The Cooking of the Caribbean” by Elizabeth Lambert Ortiz.

Chicken with Pineapple (6)

Poultry or meat dishes cooked with fruit are commonly found in the Spanish speaking islands of the Caribbean and indeed throughout Latin America. This practice originated in the Middle East, then spread to Spain when the Moors occupied the Iberian Peninsula. This is from Antigua and can be found in ” The Cooking of the Caribbean” by Elizabeth Lambert Ortiz.

Mussels with Curry Cream Sauce (2)

This is from ” Belgo Cookbook” by Denis Blais and Andre Plisnier. Its a great source for recipes for Mussels ( and indeed other Belgian dishes) so if you eat shellfish and love them as much as i do I recommend hunting out a copy. Mussels are packed with minerals. high in protein and low in saturated fats so one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Enjoy.
