What truly set St Lucia Food apart from everywhere else? What are the true and original tastes of St Lucia? How much do you know of our unique foods and recipes? Most of our indigenous or traditional foods are from tubers and fruits. These are all called Ground Provisions and yes grown locally by farmers or families in their back yard gardens.
Once again our unique creativity is expressed in the wide range of meal preparations and local recipes that can be made from them.
Certainly to get a taste of St Lucia you need to experience a number of activities.
Be it indoors or out-doors, seated or on the run, boiled, fried, grilled or barbequed, it is all for your taste buds - Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!
