Caribbean American Restaurant Week

Taste of the Caribbean

caribbean food

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:
