Around the world Bajan cuisine is synonymous with food excellence, vibrant and tantalizing fare guaranteed to satisfy the most discerning of palettes. But often times we forget that the foods we consume in some of our best fine dining establishments come from very humble beginnings telling the stories of a people who simply used what was available and finding ways to make consumption palatable.

This coach tour is an insight into the foods that we enjoy, some forgotten and many still staples on the Bajan diet. We will use food as our gastronomic guide as we explore the underpinning stories of the areas we visit. So yes, this is a Historic Food Tour where we essentially lunch and learn.

This tour is a tribute to the late Austin Clarke, who penned a Culinary memoir entitled Pigtails n Breadfruit highlighting stories from throughout his childhood about the important role of food in the Barbadian society..
