    Hey i saw your recipe for pine tart. and damn yours looks like the ones that are SOLD ! After that i had to explore your site.
    geez it makes me so hungry… xD

    i was wondering if you have the recipe for rice pudding or kire [ key-ear ]
    ha forget my spelling and look at the pronounciation. =P

    OH OH and pouloree and bara… again with the spelling but i’m sure you know what i mean.

  2. Meshelle

    Jehan! Wow. What can I say, you almost bring tears to my eyes, girlfriend. I’ll be filing away all of these recipes, you hear me?! I cannot proclaim myself to be a cook, but I am one of those types who will learn a few things, repeat them over and over and make them well… Guyanese patties-my specialty! I was online punshing to try and explain to a Trini friend how to make patties, but not just your average “run a de mill” patty (see North American commercialized Jamaican patty-sorry, but it’s the truth!)… no, I’m talking about the best patty there is (if you’re a Guyanese)-GUYANESE STYLE PATTIES! Right down to the lovely pans, I see that you have used… you captured my recipe perfectly, so it was as easy as right click, copy and paste! My only addition to your recipe since I like my patties hot is MIRI WIRI (or wiri wiri) pepper… gott have a few of those in there too for extra KICK! THANK-YOU for the inspiration… please update us on the business and you must be tinkin’ bout a cookbook?! Say yes, and I’ll be your first customer! There is hope yet for me to be “MCC-Meshelle Can Cook”! Cheers, my friend.

  3. JehanP

    Thank you for all the great compliments. I know exactly how you feel about Guyanese recipes and that is the reason why I started this blog. Keep visiting my blog, I plan on posting more authentic Guyanese recipes from time to time.

  4. felicia

    Your dishes look amazing. Do you make pulouri balls. Not sure how to spell it. My Gran used to make them and serve with Tamarind dipping sauce, I would love to track down a recipe.

  5. Talia

    Hi Gian,
    Thank you for this very helpful, can you do a receipe for Guyana Chowmein.
    That would be great

  6. JehanP

    Keep visiting, I plan on posting that recipe in the near future.

  7. tied up in arizona

    thank you your webpage is now my recipe bible.
    i have been looking everywhere to find a good guyanese recipe site!
    american food is good, but guyanese food oye. i grew up there i just can’t stop eating the stuff.

  8. tied up in arizona

    by the way you wouldn’t happen to have a black pudding recipe would you :)?

  9. JehanP

    I do not have the recipe for black pudding but I will definitely be looking into finding a good one.

  10. kavita

    hey girl, your page is amazing!
    This is probably the most authentic Guyanese recipes out there.
    by the way do you have a recipe for crequette ** ( snails)..? its really good.
    and one for crab curry?
    Would really appreciate it. thanks
    Keep up the good work!


  11. JehanP

    Thank you so much…but unfortunately I have never had snails so I don’t have a recipe for that. I’m slowly making my way through all these recipes by finding, creating and testing new old and old recipes so crab curry is soon to come. Keep visiting.

  12. Justine

    Im having a hard time finding recipes for White and Black pudding you seem to have great recipes and wonder if you have recipes for those. It would be awesome if you did =)

  13. Nikita

    I was looking for the cheese rolls and came across your site. I immediately bookmarked this site. I LOVE it! You have so many delicious recipes and you explain the instructions very well! I will definitely be making many of these recipes. Thanks!

  14. Monique

    Jehan first let me say you make me proud to be guyanese! I have been searching for recipes for awhile now, and I was so happy to find this blog. I have written down and book marked for the future. I am making the spongecake as I type. I just moved to atlanta and I cannot find a guyanese restaurant. You have saved the day I will be surprising my mom when she comes next week to visit by making her fav the patties. I sure hope you write a book or open a restaurant! BTW do you have a recipe for mittai.

  15. Stacy

    Oh my goodness, thank you so much for the website. My parents are Guyanese and I’m away at college missing this food so much and now I can actually make it for myself!

  20. Min

    I’m so happy to find your website! I came to Canada with my parents when I was a little girl. I love and crave the Guyanese food that I grew up with but my Mom didn’t keep up the traditional cooking. I’ve asked my dear aunt for recipes but can never get any straight measurements. I’m not that good in the kitchen but can’t wait to try some of your recipes.

    Is your pholouri recipe the same as “bara”?

  21. Dante

    I have to say, I’m impressed with this website and its recipes. My parent’s have been trying to find a good recipe for cheese rolls for awhile and your pine tarts look divine!

    Hopefully in the future you can put down a recipe for Black cake and the icing in here, I’d love to see how yours comes out.

    Thank you for spending so much time on this, I know that when I’ll have to be on my own, I’ll have the recipes somewhere to remind me of home.

  34. JehanP

    Tayla I don’t think I’ve heard of it…I will definitely be asking around about this.

  35. Camber

    A Guyanese Chinese recipe opened up over here on Grant and Glenmore. They sell some delicious fried rice and chicken. Very similar to Bamboo Gardens on Avenue L and 95. However, I waked in there and asked how much for just di fried rice alone and them tell me si $6 dollars. They just opened up so they have a system where they don’t pack the food up to the top of the container. You paying a whole lot of money and not getting enough food. Now…I need to know if you have a recipe for fried rice with bora, carrots and them thing dah? Tiffany I am with you.

  36. JehanP

    I have promising a fried rice recipe and it will be coming soon!

  37. Mel

    I am so excited to have found another fellow Guyanese with fabulous recipes! It’s so hard to find a good recipe out there when you’re in search of the delicious foods you grew up with.

  38. Quiana

  40. Anna

    Hello Jehan,
    I’m also Guyanese and would like to say that your website is just excellent. My sons always wanted me to make pine tart but never know how to. Many Thanks to you and the internet, I followed your recipe and it came out just perfect, no more buying lol. For anyone wanting to try this recipe, you will have no regrets. My sons always ask me how come the Guyanese people can make such excellent food, what makes us so different from the others. I would always reply, thanks to your Mothers, Grandparents and Yourself who always try new ways to make food tasty. I would like to try making Cassava Pone could you please sent me the recipe. Keep up the excellent work.

  41. JehanP

    Hi Anna, thanks for your support, I love it when I receive emails and comments from my readers such as yours. I’m glad to know that I an be of help to you and to so many others. As for Cassava pone, I am currently working on it. I will post as soon as I have perfected it.

  46. JehanP

    Hi Michelle, I’m working on a recipe for fudge and that will be coming soon. I have a recipe for pistachio ice cream on my blog. Replace the pistachio paste and ground pistachio with your flavoring of choice. And once the custard is cool, add to your ice cream maker.
