Tobagonians want Prime Min-
ister Dr Keith Rowley to attend
one of the island s most success-
ful culinary events, the Tobago
Blue Food Festival.
Organisers of the event were at
the Gulf City Shopping Complex
on Saturday with an array of
mouth watering delicacies. Shop-
pers were treated to free samples.
The festival, which takes place
on October 18 from 10 am to 6:30
pm at Bloody Bay Recreational
ground in Tobago, usually attracts
thousands of tourists from Europe,
United States, Canada and the
Caribbean. It showcases one of
Tobago s prime crops, the dasheen,
which is popularly known as blue
The festival is in its 17th year
and representatives from the
L Anse Fourmi, Bloody Bay and
Parlatuvier Village Councils are
confident that it will attract more
than 12,000 people.
Sherma Mc Dougall-Williams,
product development and desti-
nation manager of the Division of
Tourism and Transportation in the
Tobago House of Assemby (THA),
said she wanted Trinidadians to
experience the festival.
"We are having a blue food
showcase. Today we are giving
away dasheen black cake, dasheen
sponge cake, dasheen wine,
dasheen khurma and anchar,
dasheen fudge. dasheen quiche
and cookies," she said.
She explained that the products
are made with dasheen flour,
which is gluten free.
Mc Dougall-Williams explained
the the festival was first organised
by residents of L Anse Fourmi.
"People came out and cooked
a lot of things using the dasheen.
You can enjoy it with pork, chicken
or fish. Dasheen is a healthier
starch and is one of the best sta-
ples you can find," she sid, adding
that dasheen flour is marketed
"Many tourists take home the
dasheen flour. We are getting sup-
port from the THA to promote
the festival and it is really catching
on," Mc Dougall-Williams added.
She said Dr Rowley usually
attends the festival.
"We are hoping that despite his
schedule this year, he will make
time to come. We want people
from Trinidad to come and expe-
rience the festival as well," she

Former National Security Minister
Gary Griffith is denying that kidnap-
pings have returned to T&T. He said
there is no credible data to support
In a statement, Griffith said police
data involving kidnappings confirm
that National Security Minister
Edmund Dillon was either misinformed
or misquoted when he made an alarm-
ing statement last week saying there
was a reemergence of kidnappings.
Griffith said there were 16 more kid-
nappings this year than the same period
"Additionally, kidnappings for ran-
som this year, at this time are three in
comparison to 2 last year, which could
never be seen as a barometer to state
that kidnappings have returned" he
He said while there have been several
missing person reports recently, this
should not be used as a rationale to
state that kidnappings have returned.
"The actual reduction of crime and
the reduction of the fear of crime are
two different things, so by the data
showing that kidnappings continue to
be reduced, and then seeing media
headlines state that kidnappings have
returned, would cause massive concern
to a subject matter that is indeed not
out of control," he said.
