Welcome to The Inner Gourmet, a blog about food, culture, and the stories that make these recipes come to life. The Inner Gourmet blog was created in January 2010 as a means to document my passion for food, as well as help inspire those who might find Caribbean cooking a bit intimidating. I grew up in a Guyanese home where my mother prepared and cooked all of our meals, including traditional Guyanese foods. As a young child, I spent a lot of time helping her cook, but after moving away from home, I quickly realized how much I missed her touch in the kitchen. It was also apparent that without her physical help, I had no idea how to cook the traditional foods I loved so dearly. I slowly came to learn that I was not the only one facing this issue. Many first-generation Caribbean-Americans, like myself, who were born in America, but grew up with Caribbean parents, had no idea how to replicate the traditional dishes that became a daily part of their lives. I felt we needed a space online where people like myself who wanted to learn how to cook, but needed measurements, could be inspired and encouraged to cook the foods we all grew up eating, this is what prompted me to start this blog.
