Trini Stew Beef with Lime Pepper Sauce ~ Sweet Bread

Over the centuries, colonial rule and immigration have left Trinidad with an incredibly diverse ethnic mix of people from South America, Africa, India, Europe and China - this is reflected in the food, as seen in this recipe for Trini stew beef. Stew has its roots in European cookery, the caramelisation of sugar is distinctively Caribbean and finally we’ve got some Chinese and South American flavourings in the form of five spice and habanero chilli! The stew is served with mashed squash, green beans, a fruity apple kuchela and the quintessential Trinidad lime pepper sauce. For dessert we’ve got Trini sweet bread, packed full of dried fruit and coconut and flavoured with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
