About Michelle Rousseau | Suzanne Rousseau

Suzanne and Michelle Rousseau

Sisters Michelle and Suzanne Rousseau have spent the last 20 years exploring the culture and identity of Caribbean food from their unique vantage point as Jamaican chefs and entrepreneurs. They were the hosts of the popular food and travel show Two Sisters and a Meal. They also produced and starred in the web series Island Potluck, a joint production with the Jamaica Tourist Board. Their first cookbook, Caribbean Potluck, received critical acclaim and was named one of NPR’s Best Books of 2014. Most recently, they have opened Summerhouse at the Liguanea Club in Kingston, Jamaica, a Caribbean gastropub with the mission of celebrating the soul, heritage, and lifestyle of the islands. @2sistasandameal

Grilled Cheese with Peppers

For those of us who get a little anxious when we don’t have a bottle of hot sauce within reach. Unconventional? Yes. Comforting as the classic? Also yes.

Four glasses filled with hibiscus cocktail with a bowl and spoon on the side and a few hibiscus flowers lying on the counter.

Hibiscus Cocktail

This stunning sipper from Michelle and Suzanne Rousseau is made from fragrant, sweet hibiscus flowers and spices. Brilliant when mixed with prosecco or enjoyed cold on a hot June afternoon. Equally ingenious any time of year.

Rum Pecan Pie

This rum pecan pie is all grown up thanks to a little splash of rum in the sweet and crunchy pecan filling. Just like traditional pecan pie. Only better.
