A Caribbean Canadian with Eartha Lowe The Storied Recipe

    • Food

A huge welcome today to Eartha Lowe, the creator and editor of Cooking Green Goodness magazine, the first black-owned Vegan magazine in Canada. Eartha was born and raised in Jamaica and named after her father, one of the originators of the Roots Reggae musical movement in the 1960’s and 70’s. While Eartha’s love of cooking was born in her mother’s kitchen, her journey to Veganism was born from both her father’s Rastafarian religion and one very memorable experience when she was young. Today, Eartha is sharing a delicious corn recipe inspired by a woman nicknamed “Crabby”, whose husband filled the air with “positivity and feel-good Reggae chants” as he walked the summertime streets with ingredients for Crabby’s boiled crab and sweet, buttery, crisp corn on the cob.
