The pages are spiced with the sisters’ fond food memories and fascinating glimpses of the islands’ histories, bringing the region’s culinary past together with creative recipes that represent the best of Caribbean food today. With a modern twist on traditional island ingredients and flavors, Provisions reinvents classic dishes and presents innovative new favorites. At once elegant, authoritative, and accessible, Suzanne and Michelle’s recipes and stories invite you to bring fresh Caribbean flavors to your table.
