TriniSoul's seasoned chef, Bryan, and Trinidad-born Chef D tutor budding cooks in proper Caribbean culinary techniques mixed with Southern soul influences, showing more than a dozen group classes how to dice and apportion ingredients and arrange finished meals. The Taste of Jamaica class covers staples such as jerk chicken, fried or baked plantains, and steamed cabbage. Alternatively, a roti-making class teaches hands to knead, roll, and fill dough with curry chicken and chickpeas.


Inside the kitchen of TriniSoul, students get the opportunity to face down the scotch bonnet—a lantern-shaped pepper that smolders with 50 times more heat than a jalapeño. The heavy-duty pepper is just one of the extraordinary ingredients introduced to students by Chef D, a Caribbean native who holds court during cooking classes that center around the recipes she grew up enjoying. Her foray into culinary instruction started as a few simple classes on the cuisine of Trinidad and Tobago, but her teaching style developed a rabid following, and Chef D's curriculum has grown to cover many types of Caribbean cuisine as well as American-style soul fare. More than 6,000 students have enrolled in Chef D's classes, which can accommodate groups of up to 24 in TriniSoul's kitchen as well as private instruction in one's own kitchen or properly equipped subway car.

Customer Reviews

Simple recipes,fun easy going chefs. Will go again!
Thomas T. · April 24, 2013
I treated my friend to this and was glad when we were finally able to book this offer at a place and time convenient to us both. Fun experience in an intimate setting with a small group at a beautiful Brooklyn brownstone (someone's private house). The chef and his wife made the class enjoyable and made sure all were involved. The only thing we now await is the actual recipe for the menu we learned how to prepare; hopefully that will be forthcoming (as promised) sometime very soon. All in attendance were enthusiastic about trying this delicious meal on our own at home.
