Would you like to learn how to cook Caribbean food the authentic way? In a local kitchen with local people? You could spend a morning or afternoon with one of our hosts and learn to cook an entire meal the typical Grenadian way. Sign up for one of our cooking workshops (2-3 hours) during your holiday and then sit back and enjoy the lunch or supper you have cooked – either as a takeaway or sitting chatting over the table with your cooking teacher.
Possible dishes include:
- Oil down (the national dish is a delicious, filling stew made with breadfruit, ground provisions, callaloo and other vegetables, infused with coconut. Traditionally made with pork or fish, but it can also be completely vegan, in Rastafarian style!
- Caribbean vegetables - callaloo, fried plantain, green banana salad, roast breadfruit, christophene
- Pumpkin or split-pea soup
- Spicy chicken
or Saltfish Souse
- Ground provisions, (yam, sweet potato, dasheen, tannia)
- Coo coo (a Caribbean version of polenta)
- And if you still have room for dessert.. How does Nutmeg ice cream or Sweet potato pudding sound?
But don’t just take our word for it about how delicious Grenadian food is..
