Recipes

Saint Lucian cuisine is a combination of both French and British dishes and a colourful blend of local produce that provides a unique twist. Famous for its banana and salt fish dish, other favourites are based on fresh fish, chicken, various meats, plantains, yams, coconut water and coconut milk. The island’s British influence is also seen in the wide variety of spices used in its cuisine, which create a unique, loveable and colourful fusion.
