series description

TASTE THE ISLANDS showcases the sweet, spicy and exotic flavors of Caribbean cuisine. Host Hugh Sinclair (aka "Chef Irie") — a personal chef, caterer and culinary consultant to elite athletes and corporate clients — introduces spices and traditional dishes and explains their history and relevance in Caribbean culture. Each episode opens with co-host Nicole, a Jamaican-born foodie, challenging Chef Irie to incorporate some of her favorite island flavors into a mouth-watering Caribbean-styled meal. Chef Irie's culinary repertoire and passion for Caribbean cuisine and culture shines through as he leads viewers through his unique take on recipes - from citrus-infused snapper ceviche, herb-crusted salmon with green papaya and mango slaw, to callaloo soup, homemade ginger beer, beignet-style banana plantain fritters, and pan-grilled jerk pork medallions - while offering helpful tips and cooking techniques.
