These dishes do well with Belikin Beer glass

The beautiful Central American country that is Belize Belikin beer glass(which is still identified in globes and maps as British Honduras) will not officially turn 30 years old until next year. But in less than three decades as a nation, Belize has come to develop a cuisine all on its own based on influences from the British, the Caribbean and the Spanish. While most of the country’s food source comes from the Caribbean Sea, many traditional and native dishes have very little to do with the ocean and more with their abudant vegetables, fruits and seasonings.

Just as Americans need their ketchup, Belizeans need their habanero sauce. A bottle of Marie Sharp’s Habanero Sauce is found on every table, and just a few dahses can make it into every dish. However, real cools make their own; homemade habanero sauce mostly comes with a serious kick. Also, Belize meals are perfect when paired with a cold Belikin Beer glass. You do not have to worry because this locallu-famous beer is available practically everywhere. Make sure that you taste as least a few of these top Belizean dishes.

1. Rice, beans and boiled chicken are to Belize what friend chicken, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob are to America. The chicken is boiled for a few hours with garlic, recado (a root that gives the dish its red color) and local seasonings. The Mayans used recado for tattoo ink, but it is more commonly used today as coloring in lipstick.
2. Cashew wine do not come from the cashew nut, but a cashew apple (the fruit that surrounds the nut). It gives a very sweet wine. The best advice would be to sip in small doses (the hangover it produces is a doozie).
3. After you have recovered from that hangover, try drinking 1 Barrel Rum. This is a dark rum and is considered as the official drink of the nation.
4. Journey cakes, otherwise known as Johnny cakes, are a break-like treat that is made with flour and coconut milk. The cakes pack and travel well and are standard fare for fishermen to take out for several days or weeks at a time. This is the reason why it is also called a ‘journey cake.’
5. Do not let the word ‘chicken’ in the ‘bamboo chicken’ dish fool into thinking that you are eating poultry. It is really just local iguana and is best served around Easter.
6. If you are interested by rodent dishes, then you will love gibnut (otherwise known as rat). At some point, it was known as the Royal Rat, as it was served to Queen Elizabeth when she visited.
7. Aside from being really fun to say, cheesy cho cho, it tastes somewheat like cauliflower with cheese sauce poured on it. Instead, the vegetable is called chayoe or christophine and is a member of the squash family.
8. Escabeche is basically a chicken soup. It is heavily seasoned with black pepper, onion and vinegar. Many cooks also add loads of jalapenos to add a bit of kick.
9. For dessert, try either soursop ice cream or craboo ice cream. The craboo fruit is about the same size of a blueberry, but either red or yellow and tastes quite sweet. The cream is about the ame color. The soursop is more citrusy and is bigger. Both are great treats on a hot and humid day in Belize.
10. The traditional Caribbean rum cake, or rainforest rum cake, is baked in Belize and a portion of the sales support the restoration of the rainforests in this beautiful country. The charitable side of this desset means offses its calories.
