A Film by Karen Kramer
 Text Size Increase Font Size Decrease Font Size divider Printable VersionPrintable Version

Gill's, in Brooklyn, New York, is a modest restaurant specializing in West Indian cuisine.

In this charming film Gillian Charles, the restaurant's proprietress and chef, prepares her own recipe for the staple of West Indian fare, Rice and Peas, while reminiscing about her native Trinidad and the adjustments she has made in the United States.

In this way, RICE AND PEAS provides an example of how one woman has kept her cultural heritage intact by introducing it into her new world.
