medley are all specialty dishes you’ll find at Marla’s Caribbean
Cuisine and on the menu for our next Culture Through Cuisine. In 2005,
Marla Jadoonanan achieved her lifelong dream of opening a Caribbean
restaurant based on the flavors of her native Trinidad and Tobago and
with a deep Indian influence. Since then, Marla’s has received numerous
awards including Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2014.
Come hear Marla speak about her early days of learning to cook and the
enormous flavors she’s serving up from her tiny kitchen in South
Marla Jadoonanan was born in Princes Town, Trinidad
and Tobago and moved to Northeast Minneapolis with her family when she
was 15. Marla’s passion for cooking began at a young age when her father
would take her down to the village and she would cook with the other
ladies. If you ask her, she doesn’t have any recipes, just a little bit
of this and a little bit of that. Of course, her main ingredient is
always lots of love!
