As a writer and photographer I travel between my life in Toronto, my life in Antigua, and anywhere else my wanderings may take me ... writing my books and enjoying local arts and adventures along the way.

Vegetarianism in Antigua

Today I went to the studio of Edison Liburd, another painter whom I’m interviewing for my book. His wife very graciously offered myself and my kids to partake in their vegetarian meal. I knew my meatatarian kids would have had to be much closer to abject starvation before they would try anything that contained Tofu. However I’m deeply appreciative of vegetarian cuisine and could not resist trying a little. I truly enjoyed the food, which bore a distinctively west Indian flavor. In fact the  tofu actually tasted very much like salt fish. I asked Carol, Edison’s wife how could this be possible? She said that the tofu she buys can be prepared to taste like just about anything. When she served her husband’s dinner the variety of vegetables and their colours and textures seemed to have been lovingly presented on the plate. I took a picture to capture that creative statement in food.

The vegetarian meal was colourful. I found its different textures to be beautiful both visually as well as in culinary terms.
