Welcome to Cooking and Couture                                                                                                                 Cooking with Nerisa on i-netradio

If you follow my book reviews on my blog on my sister website  OR follow my cooking segment "Cooking with Nerisa" on then you know I have many passions besides reviewing books.  One of them... Cooking... and another...Fashion.

I was Born on the beautiful island of St. Croix, Virgin Islands one fine day... on the 29th of June...So mark your calendars...June is National Nerisa Month.

I am proud to say that I come from an amazing family of cooks and culinary chefs. Grandma always had something baking in the oven, Mom's famous macaroni pie is always a family favorite during the holidays, I'm in love with Aunt Dee's conch ceviche, my (maternal) Grandma's salt fish and dumplings is my favorite, my Aunt Jill is fierce in the kitchen after a day of shopping in the farmers and fish market, and when I visit St. Croix you can't get me out of my Auntie Vi's kitchen. And if I start listing of all the dishes that I love from my cousins...Well...we will be here all night...but I think you get the picture.  We islanders love to most islanders do.

 I call it the island's love letter, we write our love letters to island in appreciation of the fresh fruits, vegetables, and seafood by creating recipes that tell a story of the history, love, and family of the place we call home.

With my love of wanting to create new recipes... a thrist for travel was born. Hence, you will always find recipes from exotic islands and amazing countries from around the World.

My frequent visits to various countries also peeked my interest in fashion and hence the fashionista was born....And... my love for all things couture. 

And now we have my love child...Cooking and Couture. Welcome... grab a seat and let's make a cocktail and talk about cooking... And a little fashion....And let's explore the world door is always open :)
