Kin by Marie Mitchell

Who’s the author? Marie Mitchell is the co-founder of the Island Social Club, a restaurant, bar, and cultural space designed to celebrate Caribbean cultures and cuisines. Alongside her work as a chef, Marie champions social inclusivity, sustainability, and mental health awareness.

More than just a recipe collection, however, Kin is a book that celebrates the power of food, and explores the many ways in which food connects us to our families, our cultures, and our roots. Gathering recipes from across the Caribbean, Marie tells the stories behind each dish and illuminates their historical and cultural roots.

Recipes we love: Jamaican Patties, Honey Jerk Wings, Piña Panna Cotta with Caramelized Pineapple, and Summer Rum Punch.

Perfect for: Home cooks seeking fresh inspiration and exciting new recipes, food lovers looking to learn more about Caribbean cuisines, and anyone who loves to share and connect through food.
