St Lucia Food A Truly Creole Mix

Green Breadfruit

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!

1. Family Get Together: Whether you are visiting St Lucia or just a St Lucian looking to rediscover our Island or yourself invite yourself to a truly St Lucia Family meal. See how we prepare our local dishes and the spirit with which we do.

2. Round The Island Tour : This will take you around the coastline communities. This can be done any day but you can get some more excitement on weekends and Public Holidays. Great opportunity to taste Island Bar-B-Ques and Grills, local fruits and vegetables in additional to all the other associated fun.

3. Restaurants & Bars: All restaurants, bars can offer you a Creole Menu either as standard or special. Just ask for your Creole Taste.
