    You missed the safety thing about spicy things. Always go to the toilet beforehand tis a safety lesson every chef learns this once, twice such a person has issues.

    Anybody who wants to know... pigeon peas can be found at almost any Latin Market, or the Latin aisle of your supermarket. Also called gandules. And now I'm hungry.

    Only things I would say is that the peas should be boiled for awhile before putting the rice in, just so they can soften otherwise the texture isn’t always the best, also letting the rice soak with just the peas after to get some colour, then putting in the scotch bonnet etc, also I’ve never really seen plantain(plan-tin🙃)fried like that normally it’s sliced more diagonal and thinner but other then that everything was 👌🏽 do a curry goat and fried dumplings video next, maybe even patties🙌🏽

    Hey Babish, could you make the cuisine in "Welcome to the Sticks"? The only food I've seen there is a "smelly cow cheese", must be delicious just by the smell, but then there's also something called "gu-gu" I think, which may just be big potato chips and that's it, I can't seem to find out what it really is.
