Food for the Ears


Around My Table, Trinidad and Tobago’s first ever radio food programme made its debut on Sunday 5 September. This aural culinary treat is hosted by Trini Good Media co-founder and noted Caribbean food writer Franka Philip on Talk City 91.1FM.

Franka says “Around My Table is not a cooking programme, but rather a show that will feature stories about farmers, chefs, artisans, producers and engaging personalities from across T&T, the Caribbean and the diaspora.”

Episode One covered gluten-free baking and featured Moylan Lovell of Moy’s Gluten Free Kitchen and Jody White of Slimdown 360. In the personality spotlight, Franka spoke with top local chef Khalid Mohammed. And from the T&T diaspora, Florida-based Trini YouTube star Natasha Laggan of Trini Cooking with Natasha. Around My Table also heard from Namdevco CEO Nirmala Debysingh-Persad and Berrycove MD Ralph Birkhoff. Sitting in as the presenter’s friend was food and beverage industry stalwart Roger Rampersad.

We apologise for the quality of this recording, This is due to technical difficulties originating at the radio station.


Around My Table will air at 10am on the first and third Sundays of every month on Talk City 91.1FM or via the Talk City site. The programme is produced by Trini Good Media for TTT.
