Pig Tails 'n Breadfruit
Rituals of Slave Food : A Barbadian MemoirBook - 1999
Austin Clarke grew up in Barbados, enveloped in the heavenly smells and smoke of women cooking. From them, he learned how to prepare the beloved dishes of the island - Rich Golden Roast Pork, Fried King Fish, Breadfruit Cou-Cou and, of course, his very own Chicken Austintacious. He shares his recipes for these hearty meals and reminisces about the "slave" food that was so much a part of his life. Whether it's a story about the village butcher whose qualifications were somewhat suspect, or a sure-fire route to a woman's love through her stomach, Austin Clarke will make you hungry for the "hot cuisine" and spirit of the island.
