Join CE as we celebrate International Women’s Day! This March 8th, we’re highlighting remarkable women making noteworthy strides in the food industry.
Spice up your comfort foods with the help of Quin Liburd, the self-taught home cook and recipe developer behind the blog Butter Be Ready, which features comforting dishes with flavors inspired by her Caribbean heritage.
In fact, cultural influences often make their way into Quin’s dishes. From the spices she uses such as curry, jerk and Scotch bonnet, to the types of meats involved, many elements of her nationality play a part in her recipes. “Black and West Indian (Caribbean) culture are both identifiers of mine that I am proud to make known,” she says. “To me, it’s important for others to understand who is behind Butter Be Ready.”
Quin dreams of inspiring home cooks across the world and is planning to pen her own cookbook in the near future. Until then, you can discover countless recipes on her website. Keep your eye out for drool-worthy seasonal creations like her recent Strawberry Sweet Rolls made with strawberries from Tampa’s annual Plant City Strawberry Festival.
