I was born in a tiny island in the Caribbean called Grenada at 9:00 am on a Carnival Tuesday. While people were jumping up in the street, my mother was busy pushing me out into the world. Up to this day she tells me that she was not happy about that: she missed Carnival because of me.
Grenadian cuisine is rich and diverse with influences from many cultures. Your mouth will never get bored in this island paradise and your tongue will be licking plates clean, all chicken bones will be sucked until there is no marrow left in them. Below is a sample of the delicious dishes you can look forward to enjoying.
From left to right: seasoning peppers, bakes, black pudding, avocados, fried fish, catalo soup, water lemons, macaroni pie with stewed lamb, oil down, yellow rice and curry, saltfish souse, titiri.
