"Out of the Doubles Kitchen" is a fascinating memoir of the first
family of Doubles--the number one street food of Trinidad and
Tobago. An informative, educational, and inspiring book that traces
the evolution of this business from being "poor-people-food" to a
multimillion-dollar industry. The family's struggles in introducing
this new ethnic food to a diverse population are vividly narrated.
The author engagingly recounts his family's experiences with the
social hurdles of abject poverty, illiteracy, alcoholism, domestic
abuse, shame, race and class. His writing transports the reader
back to Trinidad when its plural society was in its infancy. The
book is also a remarkable testament to the extraordinary legacy
left by the author's father. In addition to documenting the history
of his family's creation of Doubles, the book is a deeply personal
memoir of the author's own journey from the Doubles Kitchen to the
American Dream. This motivational memoir also leaves the reader
salivating for a taste of Doubles.
