Trinidad Chicken Foot Souse is another comfort food that came to the island with the European colonial migrants. This pickled dish was a tasty way to preserve meats before refrigeration and utilize all parts of the animal. These less muscular parts of animals such as the feet, ears, and snout are known as Offal. Initially, these animal parts were affordable meat sources, but now they have become a delicacy and an adventurous culinary experience when traveling to different countries. Another interesting fact is that some of these parts of the animal are rich in nutrients like collagen, which has been marketed as a natural anti-aging supplement. Regardless of this, we in the Caribbean know that Souse is a finger-licking dish few can resist with its savory textural experience unlike anything else.
