Diet
  • Chicken dishes are popular, especially barbeque, and fish (fresh local fish and salted cod). Crab and callaloo (a spinach-like vegetable) is a specialty as is oil-down, a stew with coconut, breadfruit, vegetables and often pork or fish. Rice and peas and ground provisions (yams, tannias, sweet potatoes) are popular.
