Taste the Caribbean and the Unbeatable Flavours of St. Kitts this Summer
St. Kitts is delighted to be part of this year’s Kenwood Travel Taste the Caribbean campaign, which highlights the many culinary flavours of the Caribbean and offers a number of exclusive holiday offers to the island.
The Caribbean is without a doubt one of the world’s best-loved holiday hotspots, thanks to not only its stunning beaches and friendly people, but its authentic and fresh food culture. St. Kitts, one of the Caribbean’s most seductive spots, has a vibrant dining culture boasting both delicious local street food and internationally known culinary delicacies.
To make this temptation a reality, Kenwood Travel has released bespoke travel deals at top-rated St. Kitts destinations this summer starting from just £799pp. Stay at the Timothy Beach Resort, ideally located on the beach, for seven nights from £799pp including flights with British Airways or at the new five-star Park Hyatt resort for seven nights from £1432pp including flights.
Racquel Brown, CEO of St. Kitts Tourism Authority, said: “By far one of the greatest appeals of St. Kitts is its delicious, authentic food. From the laid-back beach shacks and fine dining, travellers are spoilt for choice of where to dine on the island.”
St. Kitts is known for providing travellers with an unforgettable dining experience, whether you are dipping your toes in the sand in one of its beach bars or enjoying fine dining.
Just some of the island’s well-loved restaurants include Spice Mill at Cockleshell Beach, serving up fresh seafood in an authentic setting, and Sprat Net, a waterfront restaurant where fish and lobster can’t come any fresher. Owned by two fishermen, Sprat Net’s slogan is “we eat what we catch”. For a unique, family-owned eatery, visit El Fredo’s for traditional Kittitian food including goat water (spicy meat stew), curried conch and vegetables such as yams, cassava and sweet potato.
One of the top spots to experience true Kittitian cuisine is The Strip in Frigate Bay, including Sunset Café & The Dock (part of the Timothy Beach Resort), Mr. X’s Shiggidy Shack (offering great entertainment in a traditional island setting), Vibes has unbeatable tunes and delicious cocktails.
For those that want a little taste-test before venturing to the island, the Taste the Caribbean campaign features an easy-to-follow recipe book where Colin Brown, the Executive Head Chef at Cottons Rum Shack in London, features seven exquisite local dishes from a number of Caribbean Islands – including St. Kitts. Now you can re-create fabulous Caribbean cuisine in the comfort of your own home! Look out for a copy at this week’s Taste of London event and the June issue of Conde Nast Traveller Magazine.
Included is a St. Kitts favourite – stewed saltfish – a dish that contains only a few ingredients but definitely doesn’t skimp on taste. Saltfish caught in the Caribbean Sea is naturally bursting with flavour and is a local’s diet staple. When served with spicy plantains, seasoned breadfruit and coconut dumplings, this is the St. Kitts national dish and one you won’t want to miss.
After whipping up some of the delicious meals at home, we guarantee you’ll be tempted to journey over to see for yourself all the delicacies on offer.
