A love affair with Trinidad’s food

Pretty much everything we do revolves around food. Out for drinks? Yes but we’ll stop for doubles/roti/gyros after. It’s Christmas! Midnight mass, love to your fellow man, wrap presents. The reward: pastelles, ham, ponche de crème, black cake. Beach! Where’s the shark and bake*? Cricket! Who’s bringing the pelau?
