A day time guided bus tour around selected parishes of Barbados with  stops along the way including but not limited to Tyrol Cot and Fisherman’s Pub  as some of Barbados’ best up and coming cooks, entrepreneurs, historians and performers take our culinary heritage out of the cookbooks and into dramatic, gloriously appetizing life!

With a fact and fun filled script based on “Pig Tails and Breadfruit – A Culinary Memoir” written by celebrated author, Austin ‘Tom’ Clarke, “Bun-Bun” by gifted artist Rosemary Parkinson and “Privilege” by The Excellent Errol Walton Barrow, this delicious four and a half  hour tour will take us from chattel house to fishing village, from rum shop to seaside picnic as we explore the rich history of Bajan food.

Ever wonder why we eat certain foods on certain days, how breadfruit came to be a staple of Barbadian diet, what privilege is or how to make good ol’ Bajan bakes? The answers to these questions and much, much more will all be a part of our “Rum and Sweet Food” culinary heritage bus tour.

Learn the history, see the live demonstrations and, best of all- taste the food and find out why Tom Clarke says “In Barbados, we like to eat food – just like to eat it. And whatever it is that we cook, we call it food. This kind of food is simple basic food. Pure and simple and good”.
