Jonathan Phang grew up in a hectic Chinese/Caribbean household in London that was always packed with waifs and strays as well as the wonderful, rich smells of the next delicious meal. The Pepperpot Club is a stunning collection of Carribbean recipes and Jonathan recounts his childhood which was defined by tales from the homeland, loud music, booming laughter, and his mother's spicy aromatic cooking. Jonathan's Nanny Phang had a theory: if you cook food people love to eat, you will gain all you want from life. In this book he shares recipes from family and friends from all six races of the Caribbean - East Indian, Chinese, Mixed European, African, North American and indigenous Amerindian - are celebrated and include Meatball and glass noodle soup, Chinese ribs, Jerk Chicken, Coconut cream pie and a kicker of a Rum punch. Peppered throughout are Jonathan's family photographs as well as stunning shots of the Caribbean.
Here's a little video of Jonathan introducing the book.
