D is for Dinner: Celebrating Parang with coconut sweet bread

sweet-bread.jpgParang is a style of music and a time to celebrate in the communities of Trinidad and Tobago. And we brought the celebration right to our studio, as we invited Resa Solomon-St. Lewis of Baccanelle catering and Ingrid John-Baptiste to share some Trini treats ahead of a Parang event this weekend.
