Twenty-two years ago, Captain Jan Robinson, sailing the Caribbean on her 60-foot yacht, found herself captured by the Virgin Islands and bought a house overlooking the sea.
Her love of St. Thomas, the people, and the food inspired her to write this, her ninth cookbook.
Famous Virgin Islands Recipes is a collection of authentic dishes and drinks, courtesy of the delightful Virgin Islands' people.
You will find recipes that have been handed down in island families for generations. Many recipes have been adapted from these old ones to fit our newer, easier lifestyle and market availability.
There are recipes ranging from tropical appetizers to entrees and desserts, often using Caribbean ingredients such as mangos, coconuts, pigeon peas, pumpkin, saltfish, soursop, bananas, rum, plantains, and nutmeg.
