Interview with Deborah Lynch Burchell

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the twin Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago. I was highly influenced by the East Indian cuisine from the tiny village where I grew up with 3 sisters and 6 brothers along with my parents.
I gained a GREAT passion for cooking in my parent's kitchen when I was just a little girl. I couldn't resist running into the kitchen where my mom , aunt, sister or father will have something delicious cooking or just the full flavors of sometimes curry chicken or brown stewed chicken with redbeans and rice or sweet currant roll or coconut sweetbread filled the air..
