As the daughter of a man who spent most of his life committed to Trinidad’s aviation efforts I have been surrounded by BWIA memorabilia all of my life. This particular 1969 issue of Caribbean Beachcomber was devoted to the food of this region and for that reason I thought more than a few of you would enjoy a look back at a time which is now relegated to nostalgia, as well as the recipes (both classic and forgotten) of that era.
Over the coming weeks and months I will share bits and pieces of this issue, as I cook my way through it. Stay tuned!
Until then, enjoy this classic commercial for that now defunct part of our history. It really brings back the memories!
