Trinity and Pork
The Spanish-speaking islands have contributed excellent pork recipes to the Caribbean cuisines. From spit-roasted suckling pigs to flavorful pork cracklings, native cooks maximize the protein’s versatility, often spicing up roasts and stews with a savory blend of onion, peppers and celery.

Papaya and Nutmeg
The papaya is one of the many Caribbean fruits never been seen by Europeans before Columbus’ voyage. The sweet, musky fruit can be treated like a vegetable when green, but is most popular when ripe and flavorful. Nutmeg and mace are different parts of the nut that grows on towering trees. A transplant from the Spice Islands, the nutmeg is now closely identified with Caribbean cuisine and provides a perfect compliment to papaya’s delicate sweetness.
