Levi Roots hit the public consciousness when he became in his own words ‘the Dragon Slayer’ and this book accompanies his BBC2 series of the same name. This his second literary offering is a great resource for those who want to try caribbean recipes with a difference.
Levi Roots still prepares the dishes with a great deal of Caribbean authenticity but adds diversity with the use of added ingredients or takes on classics given a Caribbean Twist.
The book makes a great accompliment to the series where you can see Levi preparing some of the 100 recipes within the book. In addition to the recipes, Levi gives a good run down of the items that any Caribbean cook should (or would) have in their kitchen and their repertoire.
If you aspire to cook Caribbean Food, this book would be a great one for your recipe shelf. It’s available widely in bookstores and online
