After which you will get indulge ... morein 4 Belizean dishes filled with spices in every bite as we explore and enjoy foods from 4 of our major cultures within Belize. We start with a Creole delicacy and one of my childhood favorites, "Boil Up". Boil Up just as the name implies, is a number of boiled local root vegetables, eggs, pigtail and fish covered in a special coconut flavored tomato and onion sauce.
From there we delve into the savory sensations of the Mestizo culture. You will get to indulge in the diverse corn based foods and enjoy Belizeans favorites; salbutes, garnaches and empanadas. Of course we will be having Mayan food as well and since we already had so much corn we're going to have some "Relleno de negro" which is a Mayan specialty also known to locals as "black dina" with coconut white rice. Last but definitely not the least, we discover the authentic flavors of the Garifuna culture where we get to eat some Darasa with coconut curried vegetables and stewed beef. Darasa can be considered the Garifuna version of the Belizean tamales. We end by making our own Belizean sweet treat called "Wangla". This Experience is guaranteed to leave you "Belizeanized!"
