It’s going to be unlike any other luxury dining restaurant in T&T, or so assures The Meena House’s owner, Umesh Meena.
If you haven’t already, it might be a good idea to include a visit to Jade Mountain Resort in Saint Lucia on your bucket list. If I might describe it as such—it’s a perfect piece of heaven on earth. And I’m certain celebrities like R&B songstress Beyonce and rapper Ludacris share my sentiment as Jade Mountain was their choice for a Caribbean getaway.
Talented singers, musicians, dancers, artists, actors and models from more than 70 countries across the US, Canada, Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa will be competing in the World Championship of the Performing Arts (WCOPA), considered the Olympics for the performing arts, from July 12-23, 2019, in Long Beach, California, USA.
Not highly knowledgeable on the genre, I was a bit hesitant when called upon to go to Saint Lucia to cover its annual Saint Lucia Jazz Festival. How would I do it justice, I thought? After all, I had only become familiar with the brand and appreciated its smooth and soothing delivery after my Barbadian grandmother would fill the house on an early Saturday morning with the voices of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Charles Mingus, and Herbie Hancock, while she mopped the floors. But to speak of it proficiently, I was not qualified.
High on the hills of the Southern Range overlooking the shores where Venezuelans are often smuggled in, lies a volcano that looks unique when photographed from above. It is the Anglais Point volcano which emits a steady multi-coloured flow of mud slurries that reaches 700 feet down to the Palo Seco Beach.

The 2019 St Lucia Jazz Festival came to an end on Sunday evening with a gospel concert for the first time in its history.
Geologists say pressure is building up beneath the surface of the Piparo mud volcano giving credence to the possibility that there could be an eruption sometime in the future. Active changes have also been seen on the surface and subsurface of the volcanic vents which erupted 22 years ago, displacing 31 families and killing livestock and birds.
To lay in the arms of nature, soaking up every bit of her presence, falling in love with her and understanding just
Fried ochro is one of those dishes that brings you straight back to home. It’s crispy, salty and incredibly moreish! We love to eat it with sada roti or dhal and rice. Eliminate the saltfish if you want to make a completely vegetarian and vegan dish.
This one-pot rice wonder is perfect for lunch or dinner and can be paired with anything. (We tend to favour stewed fish or jerk chicken). Nutty rice and ochroes are simmered in creamy coconut milk and savoury onion and garlic. We then mix in fresh herbs for a bright kick.
War of Wheels, Central Trinidad’s biggest motorsport event got underway on Sunday at the La Vega Estate, Gran Couva.
ln a quaint kitchen in Cedros, outfitted with a home-made motorised grater, three types of coconut oil are prepared thrice per week during low tide. The demand for this home-made coconut oil is so great that often times, it is sold out before it is actually prepared.
