I’m always finding new blogs and websites, and this one has really caught my eye. It’s TriniGourmet run by Sarina Nicole. She’s Trinidadian Jamaican and “of the Jewish persuasion,” in her words. Love it! In the past week she has written about Trini Corn Soup, a Roti Shop in Miami, and Tu B’shevat.

Need even more motivation to pre-purchase your tickets to the Food and Wine Festival? They’ve just announced that when you purchase your tickets to the South Beach Diet’s Fun and Fit as a Family ($20), they will donate to the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Relief and Recovery Efforts. Here’s what they sent me:
“In an effort to help victims of the earthquake in Haiti, the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine has announced that it will donate 100% of the gross advance tickets sales from the South Beach Diet presents Fun and Fit as a Family event at Jungle Island to the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Relief and Recovery Efforts. Bring your family out for two days of interactive food labs, culinary demonstrations, food sampling, fitness activities and much more at South Beach Diet presents Fun and Fit as a Family and support those in need in Haiti at the same time. Click here to help!”
Want to donate directly? Here are some organizations that I think are doing the best they can and will put your donations to good use:

As far as you could get in the US from Miami, but this is a great video about a Trinidadian restaurant in Seattle. The owner, Pam, demonstrates cooking dal puri and curry. And, while you’re checking out videos on You Tube, watch singer RemBunction’s ode to Trini food as well.

Black Crossroads: The African Diaspora in Miami
On display March 5, 2009 to January 24, 2010
Diverse groups of the African diaspora have come to settle, work and struggle for freedom in Miami since its incorporation in 1896 to the present day. In the process they have made significant political, economic and cultural contributions to the city. Black Crossroads: The African Diapsora in Miami explores the enduring presence and impact
of African-Americans, Africans, black Caribbeans and black Hispanics on Miami.
On display in this exhibition will be historic photographs, oral histories, memorabilia, film/video and artifacts related to black pioneers, families, laborers, communities and organizations spanning the over 100 history of black migrations to Miami.
