Meet Althea – at https://metemgee.com/

Hi I’m Althea.  Welcome to my blog.  I have a real passion for cooking, especially Guyanese and Caribbean food.  I was born and raised in Georgetown, Guyana. I moved to the USA (Brooklyn and later Queens, New York) with my parents when I was 18 years old.

When I got married and moved to Denver, Colorado I found myself recreating dishes that were no longer easily accessible to me. Without the convenience of my mom’s cooking or all the cook shops and Caribbean restaurants that Queens offered, I started recreating some of my favorite dishes, especially around Guyanese holidays when I craved dishes that we traditionally serve during those celebrations.
