These delicious delicacies are just a snippet of the delicious cuisine served across the island on Independence Day. Try one of them today!
Cou Cou and Flying Fish
This is the national dish of Barbados. Cou Cou is made with cornmeal and okra and served with flying fish and gravy.
This is perfect to wash down that Cou Cou and flying fish. Mauby is generally made from mauby bark and brewed with other spices. However, mauby syrup (where you just add water) is also sold in stores.
Roast Breadfruit and Salt Fish
Breadfruit is not as popular in Barbados as it is in other Caribbean islands, but it is a delicacy deeply enjoyed nonetheless. It can be boiled, baked or even crushed to make breadfruit Cou Cou, but it goes best when roasted and served beside stir fried cod (salt) fish.
Cassava pone is made primarily from cassava flour, derived from the cassava root. Although not as sweet as some of the other treats on this list, it is still quite delicious.
Also known as coconut bread. Featured ingredients include flour, coconut, raisins and other dried fruit. Coconut can also be placed in the center of the bread, adding more sweetness to this dessert.
