PARAMIN, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO – Today we’re going on a day trip to Paramin, a beautiful village in the mountains above Port of Spain that’s known as being the spice and herb basket of Trinidad. They grow lots of delicious plants, herbs and food. Today we have the special opportunity to hang out with Foodie Nation and Uncle Clyde for an ultimate Sunday lunch meal!
Big thank you to #visitTrinidad for inviting me to Trinidad and Tobago and for making this trip happen! Guide to the things and food in this video: https://visittrinidad.tt/things-to-do/cuisine/street-food-in-trinidad-with-mark-wiens/

Here are the main things we did today:
Aunty Julia’s – After boarding our Land Cruiser and getting into the mountains, our first stop on the way to Paramin was Aunty Julia’s, legendary for her coconut bake and saltfish. We had the chance to see her make a fresh batch of coconut bake right out of her home. We ate the bake along with sal fish, sauteed down with tomatoes and onions. We also had some fresh chocolate tea with great spices and bay leaves.
Uncle Clyde – Next we headed over to Uncle Clyde’s place – he’s a food legend, does videos and recipes for Foodie Nation and he’s just the greatest Uncle you’d ever want to have. He loves to cook traditional Trinidadian food using local and natural ingredients. First we walked around and some of the ingredients we were going to use for lunch. Then we tasted some of the fresh fruits.
Next we cooked a massive lunch that included a huge pot of stew pork, a variety of provisions and plantains. It was an unforgettable lunch meal experience, high in the mountains, overlooking the sea in Trinidad!
Again, a huge thank you to Foodie Nation and Uncle Clyde!
