All Food Everything: Trinidad James Eats Doubles

Words by Jesse Serwer—


As previously established, Atlanta rapper Trinidad James might rhyme and talk with a thick Southern drawl but he reps his homeland of T&T to the fullest. The MC’s breakthrough video, for “All Gold Everything,” dripped in Trini colors (even as it was shot in Clayton County, Georgia) while the visuals for his follow-up single, “Females Welcomed,” were shot in Port of Spain during Carnival season. So it’s hardly surprising that Mr. James goes to bat for Trini food, too. It would be hard not to, we suppose. From doubles to bake and shark, it’s one of the richest (and most slept-on, in our opinion) cuisines around.

EVENT: LargeUp x Rice and Peas x Johnny Osbourne x Miss Lily’s at Great Googa Mooga

Words by LargeUp Crew—


Great Googa Mooga, the music-meets-food festival where the chefs are bigger draws than the bands (last year’s headliners included the Roots and Hall and Oates, while De La Soul, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Flaming Lips are among those performing this year), has been called “food culture’s Woodstock.”

Miami x Vice: “Fresh Off The Boat” Visits Chef Creole

Chef Creole Fresh off the Boat

On the occasion that vacationers in South Beach head for a meal in “the real Miami,” they generally flock to Calle Ocho in Little Havana, home to long-established, world-famous Cuban restaurants like Versailles. Little Haiti, a few miles north, doesn’t attract many tourists but one place in particular has become a magnet for a unique mixture of local Haitians, Miami seafood aficionados and hip-hop celebrities: Chef Creole.

Ground Provisions: Jamaican and Panamanian Food Meet in Vermont?

Cool Runnings Vermont

If you’re going to open a Jamaican spot in an area best known for winter sports and ski slopes, you’ve got to call it Cool Runnings, right? That’s just obvious. But what’s not typical or obvious is what’s happened at Negril native Leroy Headley’s Burlington, Vermont shop and restaurant since opening. Cool Runnings is the site of a rather unlikely— but practical— fusion now that Panamanian Mayllet Paz has joined Headley in the kitchen, adding dishes like Plátano en tentación to the menu.

Hardcore Seasoning: Bad Brains “Fire Burn Babylon” Hot Sauce

Words by Jesse Serwer—

You already know the Bad Brains, the all-black, NY-via-DC outfit whose mystifying, thrilling blend of thrash, dub and Rasta consciousness kickstarted the U.S. hardcore scene in the early ’80s, as one of the greatest bands ever. Right? Less likely you’re aware that the group’s credentials in the kitchen are pretty thorough, too—specifically guitarist Dr. Know, who now runs an organic market in Woodstock, NY, and bassist Daryl Jenifer.
