Taste of the Caribbean
Caribbean Cuisine is the world’s first fusion cuisine. It was and continues to be influenced by spices, cooking techniques and foods from around the world—starting with the indigenous Indians who came to the Caribbean from other parts of South and Central America, the large number of European countries which jockeyed for island control and left their mark on the cuisine including the Portuguese, Spanish, English, French and, Danes to name a few, and the techniques and foods of the Africans, Chinese and East Indians who came to work the tobacco, sugar and coffee plantations of the Caribbean. When you add tourism and its impact to this mixture you have a diverse and delicious melting pot of foods. Learn more here: http://caribbeanamericanrestaurantweek.biz/
