Trinidad Cuisine- Chow

My wife loves her chow. So much so that there are few things that can come between. I hope I am one of the few 🙂

No matter the time of day or night, my wife has a penchant for making chow out of anything edible.

Featured here is a typical Trinidadian snack dish during its preparation stage. Ingredients include some sort of fruit, garlic, shadow benny, salt, and pepper- usually lots of it. If it doesn’t make you pant and sweat, it doesn’t have enough.

Kudos to Mars, as through her I wouldn’t have witnessed the number of things that end up becoming chow 🙂
