Carribean Cuisine and Carribean Restaurants, New York City
Caribbean cuisine is multi-cultural combining traditional ingredients such as chili peppers, taro root, corn, yams, cassava, black-eyed peas, lima beans and peanuts with foods from West Africa (okra, breadfruit and plantains) and ingredients from India, China and Europe. The islands each have varied influences, for example - the cuisines of Puerto Rico and Cuba are distinctly influenced by Spanish cuisine, the cuisines of Guadeloupe and Martinique bear French influences and Jamaican cuisine is largely African influenced.
