the buzz





The Bahamas are a necklace of islands and tiny cays stretching 500 miles in glittering blue Caribbean waters. To imagine the food of the Bahamas, think of all that the sea has to offer, cross it with English and African traditions, and season with the hot spices typical of the Caribbean. This is how pigeon peas and rice come to be on the same menu as conch fritters, and sturdy fish and grits make a typical breakfast. Unique to the Bahamas is souse, a soup of onions, lime juice, celery, peppers and meat. Queen conch, the large ocean mollusk, becomes chowder, salad, stew, fritters, or deep-fried cracked conch. Islanders enjoy snapper, grouper, rock lobster, and locally grown coconuts, mangoes, breadfruit, pineapples, and papaya. Most local drinks are based on rum, but Bahamians are also proud of Kalik, their national beer, and coconut water, a drink of sweet milk and gin.
