Gather together for a one-of-a-kind Caribbean food immersion. Candace Taylor, our amazing high school chef, will take you on a journey to her homeland—the lush island of Barbados. Bajan cuisine is a mixture of African, Indian, Irish, Creole and British influence. 

***Gluten-free menu!

***You may choose either an omnivore or ‘Ital’ (from the Rastafarian faith—ital meaning ‘vital’ and strictly vegan in nature) meal course!

The dinner menu has a fixed price of $25 for adults and $10 for children.

No bidding necessary. Seating is available for 50 people.


Appetizer: Salt Fish Cakes (gluten-free) or Fresh Herb Cake (vegan). Both served with fermented cucumbers 
and Bajan peppa' sauce.

Fish cakes are one of the most popular foods in the Caribbean. They are gluten-free, made with wild-caught salt fish, coconut flour, milk, fresh herbs, onion and garlic, pan-seared in coconut oil. The fresh herb cake is a vegan alternative made without salt fish and coconut mylk. Bajan peppa’ sauce is added to almost every meal; this fermented version is an ancestral Bajan recipe from Candace’s grandmother.

Main Course: Curry Goat Stew or Curry Chickpea “Ital” Stew (vegan, gluten-free). Both served with autumn root vegetables, rice and peas, simple salad and pumpkin fritters.

Barbados is famous for tasty slow-cooked stews that balance rich flavorful meats like beef, goat or lamb with strong peppers, spices and fresh herbs.  As an alternative to meat, chickpeas are frequently used. Often made with beets, carrots and green banana and is served with rice. Salads are simple yet balanced in flavor; fermented tangy cucumbers and sweet juicy tomatoes in a light refreshing lime vinaigrette.  Pumpkin fritters are a sweet side dish made with the creamy garden pumpkin and served with a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar. 

Something Sweet: Conkies. steamed sweet cornmeal with coconut, sweet potato, pumpkin, raisins and spices traditionally steamed in a banana leaf. 

Also known as pasteles or paimes in other Caribbean isles and Latin America, where they are served both as a savory appetizer or dessert. In Barbados, conkies have a history of being served during the old British colonial holiday Guy Fawkes Day, but now they are served during Independence Day.  

We hope to see you there!
