Spring is finally approaching and on March 8 it's International Women's Day. Time to celebrate with The Caribbean Housewife!
Our HOUSEWIFE ROAST with natural wine pairings from women producers is very much loved. The next dinner event consists of a 4-course menu with the following signature dishes:
MY MOM'S JOHNNY CAKES
Pretty much every person who grew up in the Caribbean has fond memories of these deep fried doughy cheese balls. A childhood favorite, which we can't wait to share with you!
Our much-loved Surinamese peanut soup with creamy coconut, bean sprouts, long beans, lime, cilantro, and chili, if you dare.
A hearty dish, which has its roots in Indonesia (the dish in Indonesian literally means "mix-mix"), Java, Sudan, and also Suriname. Our version comes with fried tofu, crunchy vegetables, and a lovely spicy coconut-peanut dressing. You can have the dish with or without egg. Served with fragrant jasmine rice on the side.
Our version of this delicious Caribbean black rum fruit cake with dates, raisins, cherries, plums, and pineapple. It is quite expensive to make, because of the ingredients and the long fermentation process. Therefore, it's typically only made to celebrate important life events.
