30 Foods to Celebrate Caribana in Toronto
Toronto celebrates the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival (or Caribana, as the rest of us like to say), on Saturday, Aug. 2, with city-wide festivities featuring music, dancing and of course, food.
With a long list of Caribbean islands, Caribbean cuisine has a mixture of Spanish, Chinese, Indian, French, African, English and Dutch influences. Dishes typically are made with rice, meats, veggies, curries and a whole lot of spice.
You may already be familiar with jerk chicken and Jamaican patties, but each island has a lot to offer in terms of food.
