Recipe and Craft Guide to the Caribbean

In the sunny Caribbean, bananas, coconuts, cashews, mangoes, and limes grow on trees, and some fish even seem to fly. Though the islands share a tragic past of warfare, slavery, and pirate raids, each island has a unique heritage. Poor Mans Fritters are a legacy of slavery. The molasses and brown sugar in gingerbread come from the cane fields that made the islands rich. Curry is a contribution from East India; a taste of Spain is in Christmas tembleque; and pirates and native Arawaks are remembered in the cooking method called barbecue. Capture the spirit of Caribbean cooks and artists as you toss a colorful salad with fresh fruits. Craft seashells into picture frames, and make musical instruments from dried gourds. Stencil a Jolly Roger flag, and make a scary mask out of common household materials. With a few simple ingredients, some hot peppers, and household supplies, you can cook and craft your way across the Caribbean, and find out what gives its culture so much spice.
