The familiar recipes and ingredients of India and China have melded with African, European and native cultures to offer the variety of delicious dishes available across the Caribbean diaspora. Curry is enjoyed on every island, mainly using chicken, mutton, goat and seafood as the protein. However, the Indo-Chino populations of Trinidad and Guyana hold dear the infamous Curry Duck, a beloved dish especially enjoyed during the holidays.
