Dolly grew up in Trinidad and then lived in Canada and several states in the US before settling in South Ozone Park, Queens with her husband and four of their five children. She learned to cook from her mother as a young girl and now cooks traditional Trinidadian meals everyday in both her indoor and outdoor kitchens. Dolly loves to spend time in her backyard garden and grows several Trinidadian herbs and peppers to achieve the freshest possible flavor in her dishes. Cooking is a family and community affair in Trinidadian culture, with everyone cooking together at parties and barbecues known as “hangouts”. Dolly often hosts parties and is known for making the most delicious food in the neighborhood. She also regularly cooks for celebrations at her temple and does informal catering for her community. In her free time, Dolly enjoys spending time with her family and decorating for special events.
Dolly cooked great tasty food.

I had a blast in this course. Dolly is a master of her domain, a warm, confident cook who threw open her home and whipped up enough roti, curry, channah, etc., to feed an army. I grew up in a West Indian kitchen but learned so much more here than I ever thought possible: about how to cook delicious food with skill and flair. I mean, the woman got me to eat curried goat for the first time. It was sublime. She knows her stuff. Her love of cooking was obvious, and her enthusiasm was infectious. Oh, and I love her laugh. Best cooking class I've had so far.
awesome experience. true and authentic cuisine. would highly recommend.

I learned some things that I always wondered about and instructor Dolly was very forthcoming and down to earth about sharing cooking tips. I liked the class size, 5 was just enough, anymore would have been too crowded. I'm a little on the shy side but I would definitely recommend this class.
Dolly was fantastic!! Loved the class and learned a lot.
