Gasparillo Junction

 

Gasparillo Junction Blog, named after the village where I grew up in Trinidad is a platform for me to showcase recipes I create at home for myself and friends. Tips and tricks to make your single life cooking and home cooking experience just as easy and fabulous as mine and to breathe new life into the cooking process, making restaurant-quality meals fun, quick, and accessible to the average single lady or gentleman.

My cooking style comprises four basic elements:

1. Caribbean flavors
2. Simple ingredients
3. Easily replicable techniques
4. Beautiful plating

Call me Chef LAM, but being a chef doesn’t mean I know everything about food and the food industry. I am always down to learn more and receive feedback on my recipes. This is a journey we’re taking together, so I want to hear about the recipes you create for your single life. I look forward to reading your comments and please don’t be shy to leave your cooking tips.

Brunch at Vinateria Restaurant in Harlem, NY. New Yorkers are serious about their brunch.  It’s our last love session with the weekend before heading back to work, our hoorah before the purge that is ‘Meatless Monday’ and the meal that combats the hangover from...
