We are HUGE fans of Vice Media’s food-focused channel “Munchies“ and one of our favourite shows is “F*ck That’s Delicious“ with Chef-slash-Rapper-slash-Mr. Wonderful Action Bronson. So it was a treat to see this great video of the self-titled “Human Highlight Reel” himself doing it up at last year’s inaugural NyamJam Festival in Jamaica.
Everyone’s gearing up for Carnival season throughout the Caribbean ensuring bodies are “tight” for costumes and fete outfits. And while we at Eat The Caribbean love a great fete, we are truly looking forward to all of the great food, wine and rum festivals scheduled.
We don’t need to worry about getting in shape for these festivals. All we need is our appetites, loose clothing and maybe a designated driver.
This list features just a few food festivals, so it can be considered “ETC’s Food Festival Wish List 2016”.
Leading up to this weekend’s ultimate Caribbean cultural extravaganza known as the Notting Hill Carnival in the U.K., the BBC has run a series of short video stories showcasing various aspects of the “largest festival celebration of its kind in Europe”. Episode three of Notting Hill Carnival focuses on food and explores why West Indian/Caribbean cuisine isn’t more popular after the two-day festivities end.
Houston was back at it again, showcasing Caribbean cuisine and culture at the 4th Annual Caribbean Rum Fest. This eclectic event celebrates and promotes the history and culture of Caribbean rum to the Houston community. Rum Fest hosted a variety of artists and performances – both local and international – and cooking demonstrations (and tastings!) by Caribbean chefs.
It’s July and Caribbean festivals are in full swing! If you’re looking for somewhere to go this month, check out these festivals. It’s going to be a busy July!
