Who is Loretta?

Loretta’s Kitchen is a taste of her life: capturing the incredible food, stories and laughter her kitchen has generated for over 30 years.photo-15.jpg

Loretta’s Kitchen has mastered unique Caribbean dishes from the vibrant streets of Guyana to the sandy beaches of Tobago before sending tremors of freshness and adventure to the palettes of London.

As Loretta’s daughter, her influence lives within me. Every dish has a sentimental value,

I cook not only because of the memories it evokes and the legacy that has been passed on to me.


Feel at home in Loretta’s Kitchen and in her own words “Ay! Come taste this nah?!”

    Forgive my ignorance but did your mother have her own restaurant in Guyana/London? Would love to know more about her.


    • Sadly my mother passed away 11 years ago, this blog is really a tribute to her and the cooking we shared growing up. It was one of her ambitions to have a shop: we actually started selling roti from our kitchen at one stage.

    Oh gosh. I am as pleased as punch that I have found this blog. I was looking for a recipe for pine tarts today. Of course my Guyanese mother and grandmother know how to make pine tarts but I was always more interested in eating them-rather than learning how to make them. How times change….I look forward to checking out the rest of your blog. Cheers. x
