Patricia Butcher, executive director at the T&T Hospitality and Tourism Institute (TTHTI) has described their in-house cuisine publication as a dream come true.

Cooking with Confidence for Every Occasion is the title given to the cookbook that serves up appetisers, main courses, and delectable desserts that promises to excite pallets on every occasion.

The soft launch for the cookbook took place on Carnival Friday at the TTHTI’s Taste of Carnival event where visitors in attendance purchased copies.

One hundred and twenty-nine autographed copies were sold and initial responses from those who have whipped up many of the delightful dishes is that the recipes are easy to follow. Even the health conscious among them were pleased.

Cooking with Confidence for Every Occasion is available at Nigel Khan, The Book Specialist, RIK and Mohammed’s Book Store.

Butcher said the team was ambitions and wanted the cookbook made more accessible to the international market through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

“I recall dreaming of our institution developing a cookbook and my insistence over the years with several culinary programme heads starting with Raphael Media to speed up the work on this project, so that it could be brought to completion. The idea was born when I realised the exceptional talent of the many culinary professionals that were passing through these hallowed walls. TTHTI has made an outstanding contribution to the development of culinary professionals in T&T and the introduction of this cookbook on the culinary landscape will put an indelible mark on our contribution in this field,” Butcher said.
