How did you learn to cook? Was it from a written recipe handed down by your parents or grandparents? For many of us, NO! The way we were taught to cook in the Caribbean-was try a little of this and that! No matter how it turned out we all have a passion for tasty Caribbean food.
Meet Chris de la Rosa, Trinidadian born now living in Hamilton, Canada. Chris’ passion for food led him to start a website seven years ago. He started (Caribbean Pot) in order to provide his daughters with a resource for family recipes while they were studying away from home.
Chris quit his full time job two years ago to turn his recipe site into a business. Caribbean Pot boast more than 350 recipes and includes an active Youtube Channel. Chris has been featured in many media outlets across Canada, the US and the Caribbean.
This Trinidadian’s story is a great example of how Caribbean people across the globe have managed to take their passion and culture and created viable businesses.
