I adore plantain, in particular yellow plantains (there are two types, yellow and green). I'm sure you are aware of that, the starchy vegetable which tastes so sweet is tropical, yet so comforting. There seems to be more and more ways where I am able to in-cooperate plantains in my recipes.

Gorgeous x 
Flaky pastry pies holding a creamy squash filling with nuggets of salty cheese. These empanadas aren't entirely authentic (i.e. not deep fried) but they're delicious enough not to care. Depending on what you have in the fridge, the filling can be tweaked to incorporate leftover cold cuts of meat (lamb is delicious), pitted black olives or other types of cheese.

Home of Modern, Accessible and Vibrant Jamaican Family Cooking.
Introduction
Hello, I'm Charlene, the blogger behind Food Glorious Food. Born in the West Midlands to a Jamaican father and British (of Jamaican heritage) mother, I was raised by my Jamaican grandmother who started my love of food from the Sunshine Island. 

I've always loved food and was more than happy to have a second helping,  I fell in love with baking when I was a student studying my Masters degree, but realised I was a better cook and as such documented my culinary adventures when I started my blog in 2012. 

I am passionate about modern, accessible and vibrant Jamaican family cooking and you will find many recipes that are enjoyed by my family on this site. I hope you are inspired by the food that I enjoy cooking, eating and reviewing. Foodie days out, restaurant reviews, cook book reviews and products are covered in this blog, if it's food related and I like it, I'll share it (either on here or my social media sites) and all opinions are my own. I have been fortunate to travel to many Caribbean islands and European countries and my travels are often inspiration to my cooking. 

I have worked with numerous brands and welcome sponsored posts, recipe commissions and review opportunities that fit in line with my site. Low budget items are now reviewed via social media (Twitter/Instragram/Facebook).
