Guyana @ 50 - Mettagee

>> Tuesday 17 May 2016

This one-pot meal of Ground Provisions (roots and tubers) cooked in fresh-squeezed coconut milk, onions, fragrant herbs, hot peppers, and sometimes seasoned with salt fish cooked IN the pot or salted pig-tail or beef, is what I call soul food. Mettagee, or Metem for short, fills and satisfies you in such a way that once eaten, you feel like all will be well.

As with most one-pot dishes there is a certain skill and technique to staggering some of the ingredients so that everything finishes cooking at the same time without one ingredient being overcooked or turning to mush.
