What we eat

The Hastings Food Fair & Fiesta is one of the elements of The Barbados Summer Arts Festival. It showcases the culinary skills of Barbadian and Caribbean people, offering exposure for those in the cottage industries, encouraging new recipes and celebrating the traditional dishes of the region.



One of the elements is the ‘Tastes Like Home’ event and competition, where participants are given ingredients to prepare the same dish, using their own special recipes. A similar competition will be held for the best Caribbean rum punch and to find the island’s ‘proper pudding & souse’ person.

The Food Fair and Fiesta is scheduled to take place on Saturday May 26th at the area to the east of the Hastings Rocks Bandstand, on the south coast of the island.
