The multitude of cultural influences that have shaped and developed our
island are nowhere as obvious as in the food Bajans love to cook, eat and share.
Bajan food is a culinary hybrid, deriving its spiciness and heat from Africa,
with English, Spanish, French, Chinese, Indian and American influences all
thrown together into the melting pot!
Christ Church offers a wide variety of
nightlife within its many excellent hotels and restaurants, resulting in
unforgettable evenings under the stars to exuberant entertainment for all.
For the party animal there are a diversity of nightclubs, some
specialising in local culture and music while others have a cosmopolitan,
international feel about them.
Most feature live bands and there is generally a high standard of
entertainment. so after relaxing on the beach all day check out some of
the popular night clubs that Barbados has on offer.
When the sun goes down that's when Christ Church heats up! Whatever your
desire there is something to satisfy your needs! From lively calypso, reggae,
jazz and karaoke, to floorshows and cabaret. In some venues live bands entertain
you with popular music, if a traditional pub atmosphere is what you fancy,
Christ Church nightlife has it all! If you love Caribbean food and want to cook
your own, try the
Caribbean Food Emporium which I came across while researching for this
website. Truly not to be missed if you love good food!
On Barbados cooking primarily consists of fish, lobster, breadfruit, sweet
potatoes, fruits and vegetables, chicken, pork and well-seasoned beef. The
national dish of is flying fish and Cou Cou, which is a mashed
potato-like dish made from corn meal and okra. Also try crane chub, pepper-pot
soup, puddin' and souse (pigs entrails stuffed with grated sweet
potatoes, pigs feet and ears), roti (curried chicken or beef and mashed
potatoes wrapped in pastry, a meal in itself) and conkies (made from corn
meal, raisins, spice, pumpkin and sweet potatoes). Local fruits include Barbados
cherries, dunks, ackees and soursop (known in other parts of the Caribbean as
ginops) -- a small, green-skinned fruit with a sour-sweet gelatin inside that
surrounds a seed.
