Happy Garifuna Day!

And we are celebrating! With Fufu!

Fish Serré with Fufú. Serré is probably one of my Favourite things about Belize.(except for Pigtail and Panades maybe)

God Bless the Garifunas for this magical concoction.

Ok, enough words...on to the pictures.

The Serré:

The Fufú


more Fufú

The beginnings of nirvana.(Dished up by the lovely Rose)


It's already half gone, but this was the beginning. : )

Ok, now for those of you unlucky enough to have never tasted the delights that are Serré and Fufú...

Fish Serré is Fried fish(usually whole) that is then simmered in a coconut milk broth infused with onion and culantro.(cilantro for those who don't have culantro growing in the back yard)

Fufú is a local dish made from boiling both ripe and green plantains till soft and then mashing them together. Scoops or spoonfuls of this are then dropped in the Serré.

I may have to go back for seconds...

Life is good.
