Taste and win with Taste of Dominica

Culinary tourism or food tourism can simply be put as travelling to find great food; learning about, indulging and appreciating local cuisine that captures the culture and heritage of a place and its people. It is now considered a vital component of the tourism experience.

 Dominica’s cuisine is deeply rooted in its culture and heritage with the French, British, African and Kalinago influences manipulating the techniques and flavours of the island’s food. The traditional ways of life like farming and fishing have contributed to Dominica boasting its fresh offerings of local produce like freshly caught fish and bountiful harvests.

As part of niche development, Discover Dominica Authority is showcasing Dominican cuisine through Taste of Dominica 2018 which runs from Friday, October 19 – Friday, November 30. Taste of Dominica showcases the diversity of Dominica’s cuisine and offers an array of options from street food to inspired chef creations, to herbal teas and of course Dominica’s famous bush rums.

40 establishments in various parts of the island have agreed to participate. The objective of Taste of Dominica is not only to  promote the cuisine of Dominica and get persons to visit as many eating establishments as possible it is also to increase revenue for and promotion of these establishments.

The activity is targeting locals as well as visitors. It is a way to explore the island and its offerings.

  1. Great Idea

    Great idea but it can be executed differently. Why can’t a detailed list of all of the restaurants participating be provided? Can you partner with these restaurants to offer some specials during this promotion which could entice more people to visit them? Can these restaurants provide a sample menu so we know what they offer? This is a great idea and a great first step but we need to thoroughly look at our ideas so that they provide maximum benefit.

      Also, the timeframe is too long.
      They should coordinate it so that a list of restaurants are participating in a timeframe.
      Maybe Restaurant Week
      and folks can do a Restaurant/Bar crawl around the island visiting different locations and eateries.

      We can even get vendors involved as they serve ‘local’ and historical foods.
