“It’s always been my ambition to share the rich and diverse culinary culture of the Caribbean with a global audience, in a manner that’s easy to follow and foolproof. With this partnership with SideChef and the Alexa platform, cooking delicious Caribbean food should not be intimidating nor challenging. I’m excited! ” says Chris De La Rosa from Caribbean Pot.
