In Port of Spain's markets, ingredients from Europe, Africa, and the Indian subcontinent come together on vendor tables. Culantro here is known as shadow benny or chadon benni -- a corruption of the French chardon benit or "blessed thistle." It is a part of the green seasoning that is a Trinidad and Tobago culinary basic. Chef Debra Sardinha-Metivier of DSM Creative Cuisine, gives us our first look at the diversity of the Trinidadian market basket.

Trinidad food is so flavoured the more you eat it the more you want.

What`s wrong with the presenter? Apparently the "reporter" can't look his interviewees in the eye. He looks at the floor or the food and he doesn't seem very enthusiastic. Bad casting.

How many Caribbean people in the diaspora really know how to prepare the items on display...the way our ancestors did?  I hope the Chefs will show the next generation (on YouTube) how to prepare tasty and staple Trini foods using these items.

Both the women chief from the beginning and the man chief at the end spoke very interlectual and educated. They both gave exceptional explanations on the different market ingredients and indigenous cuisine..

Loved this. Thank you. I was recently in Trinidad and wanted to go so badly to the market. Thanks for the green sauce recipe. I ate the best curried duck and dhal in Trinidad. Omg. I could never match it.

She is changing up the words she uses because she has to cater to an international audience. Y'all want to promote Trinidad using local terms??? Smh
