They make a great accompaniment to any Caribbean stew or curry meal. Not only are they delicious, they are super easy and inexpensive to make.

Fried Chicken traditional Bajan Style is beloved by the natives of Barbados. “Bajans” (which they call themselves) favor this kind of super spicy hot way of preparing fried chicken. Bajans refer to this kind of preparation as “seasoning up” a dish. For the best results, after seasoning the chicken, refrigerate it for a couple hours before the deep frying. This will allow the flavors to meld and blend deeply into the meat.

Authentic Bajan Beef Stew is a true “comfort food”. In Barbados, it is traditionally served as the main entree, accompanied by peas, rice, pickled cucumbers, and sweet potato pie. Bajan cooks, however will usually have multiple variations on the meal. Oftentimes the extra ingredients are comprised of whatever is available in the kitchen. They get included into the pot, but always the mainstay ingredients and seasonings are the same.

You can, after trying out this very traditional, mainstream version of authentic Bajan Beef Stew, to improvise in your kitchen. Once you get the basics down, you can get creative and customize it even further toward you and your family’s personal tastes.

Barbadian Guava Cheese

Barbadian Guava Cheese Supreme!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Barbadian Guava Cheese is a nationwide favorite sweet delicacy in Barbados. It is also popular in other regions, perhaps mostly in Southwest India, Goa, where is is also known as “perad”. Guava cheese was brought to Goa by the Portuguese, and its popularity spread into the Caribbean Islands as well.

In the United States, it has other names, such as: Pasta de guayaba, Guayabate, or Guava Paste. With a texture much the same as fudge, Bajans eat it by itself as a dessert, or it can be used as a filling in pastries of pies. It is also wonderful as a spread over toast. There are several variations of this delicacy, but this is the basic, authentic, traditional version, and why I call it Barbadian Guava Cheese Supreme!

These authentic Bajan Salt Fish cakes are traditionally served in Barbados for breakfast. They are often served with sweet breads or pastries, but they are also just eaten by themselves. Another preferred method of eating them, a sort of Barbadian “fast food” is to pick them up at a restaurant in sandwich form – known on the island as having a “bread and two”.

Bajan Salt Fish cakes are also considered a great finger food at parties, and are served in many restaurants as an appetizer.
