Food POV (Point of View)

Trinidad's food is the result of 500+ years of people from all over the world migrating to our little island, starting with the indigenous tribes. Everyone brought their specialities with them with adjustments being made to reflect a palate which can truly be called our own. Food of any kind is one of the most beautiful things to look at and, in my opinion, it's beauty is surpassed only by its taste! Before eating I have always enjoyed sucking the wonderful fragrance of great smelling food through my nose, after appreciating it with my eyes, then putting it in my mouth. I think that watching my Great Aunt work her magic in the kitchen when I was small was the major influence in my love of food.

I decided to try and capture what I see in our food via photographs and share them with all of you. Through the technology available with phones and their cameras I have taken some shots of various Trinidad foods at close range so that you too can appreciate their beauty up close. When you click each item you will get a little titbit on the respective food. You can even use these photographs as a primer for when you visit Trinidad & Tobago so you will be able to call out the foods when you are holding it lovingly in your hands before tasting them. Photography via a phone happens to be one of my hobbies and I hope you enjoy these pics. If you want to learn more about any of these foods please feel free to hook up with us via our Contact Us page. You can even write to share your comments or to ask any questions. You can also visit our Home page to see a list of our available tours and make a booking. Enjoy!
