These are probably one of my favourite Caribbean snacks, salt fish fritters.
This morning, I was talking to my mum about her recipe, who passed it down and who in our family makes the best fritters. I am so grateful that I grew up with a mum who cooked fresh meals, full of herbs and spices, and kept us aquatinted with food connected to our heritage, as well as English classics and other dishes from around the world. Undoubtedly, my love of food was born in our family kitchen.
I've been thinking about the importance of me being able to offer a similar experience to my children, and am keen to spend some real time studying family recipes and creating my own interpretation of them. Behind each family recipe is a story, and that's what really makes you hungry for more.
P.s- this post is for my beautiful D, now all the way in Ghana, discovering family recipes of her own. Love her always...
