Another Trini foodie

Today I discovered a great blog from another Trini foodie, Petit Careme, who I assume is a woman!
I found her blog when she made a comment on my last entry so I had a look at her blog and at once became green with envy because she was showing off Crix biscuits and Chee Zees fresh from Trinidad.
I get more envious when I saw the spread she laid on for her friends over the weekend for which included stew chicken - Sylvia Hunt style! Check out
her blog for details.

In another entry, she talked about orange pine ice cream, a dessert she reckons was invented in the Caribbean. And to be honest I have to agree with her because I never see it anywhere else.
As boldface as ever, I asked her for some guidelines, because I wouldn't mind making some orange pine ice cream myself. She said orange pine ice cream is "basically a traditional vanilla custard without the vanilla. And you have to heat the milk with the grated zest of 3 oranges, then strain it. Then after you make the custard add the juice of 3 oranges (which you have reduced to about 0.5 cup) and the grated zest of 1-2 oranges."
I wonder if I could ask for any pointers on oil down, since I planning to make a wicked oil down on Friday!
