ALL THE FLAVORS OF ST VINCENT
Discovery & taste, 52
Discover the soul of the island of St Vincent and its inhabitants through the local food. You can look forward to exotic fruits and sweets with a tropical twist. And if the spices and rum make you feel even warmer, no problem: there are refreshing drinks to enjoy that you'll only taste in this part of the world.
- Food tasting on the beach of the Rawacou National Park
- Your full immersion into the culinary culture of St Vincent starts with its most popular drink. Known as sorrel, it is a deep red color and you drink it ice cold, can you guess what it's made of? We'll tell you: it's hibiscus flowers.
- After arriving on Rawacou beach, you'll see how bread fruit is roasted: combined with fried jackfish it creates the national dish. You may have already guessed the flavor of this fruit, but just to make sure, we're giving you a chance to taste it in “picnic under the palm trees' mode”.
- Pelau, a rice-based specialty, is the quintessential creole dish: essentially paella, it has been reinvented by Africans using Caribbean ingredients. There will be plenty of Callaloo soup: did you know that around here it is even served for breakfast instead of the traditional coffee?
- Last but no least, banana cake or some delicious coconut fondants.
- And to drink? If you enjoyed the sorrel, you'll find it here too, but don't forget to try the ginger drink, the local beer or some delicious rums.
- After all this goodness, you'll have time left to create an Instagram gallery to make your followers drool, or to have a chat with the guides or take a stroll along the seashore to aid your digestion.
