Creativity sparking imagination is not only limited to the canvas. It also plays a very vital role in the making and plating of delicious dishes as well. Deandra Young Sang went from picky eater growing up to a certified foodie and culinary mastermind as an adult. Today, the food blogger and content creator fires up tantalising offerings from the kitchen.

“I love food, and food loves me,” she told Food , adding, “I created Potcovah from just the love I have for food and family. I share meals I have prepared for them that they enjoy. I wanted something that had an authentic Jamaican or Caribbean vibe; something that looked professional but still homestyle and welcoming. That’s why I love to incorporate bright colours with food, as it is my way of expressing art.”

If coming to terms with cooking her favourites wasn’t marinating enough, encouragement surely sweetened labour when her relationship with food took on a more intimate approach. She began cooking for her significant other, and he comes from a family of celebrated cooks, she explained. Knowing that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach was all the incentive she needed to get her pots bubbling.

Since starting Potcovah, her signature creations include the Appleton almond drops and coconut kale pesto basa pasta. Other dishes range from barbecued wings, jerk barbecued wings, sweet and spicy wings, grilled pork chops, and shrimp lo mein, to cream of pumpkin soup, spicy curried shrimp, curried chunks, sweet and sour fish, chicken steak with fried rice, oreo pancakes and cinnamon swirl pancakes, just to name a few.

“While I look at what others do as inspiration to try and make my own, my recipes stand out to me because they are not difficult to prepare. I use simple, affordable ingredients and turn them into something delectable, and creative. I just want people to view my page as a space for food and family,” Young Sang shared.
