1. CARIBBEAN FOOD

Caribbean food is known for a full spectrum of flavours, and every island does it differently. Getting the right spices and seasoning for a Caribbean pot sometimes means visting the homeland and returning with a suitcase full of what you need. Or you can just order it from The Spice House. Though not limited to only Caribbean used spices, one can get mostly anything ranging from Trinidad Scorpion Peppers to Jamaica Jerk Seasoning.

As Bob Marley rightfully said, "One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain." It is impossible to sit still when listening to Caribbean music. Whether it be Reggae, Calypso, Soca or Dancehall a real Caribbeanite needs their regular fix of island music. VP Records' soundcloud channel is frequently updated with what's hot in Reggae and Dancehall while DJ Private Ryan's channel is the best for Soca.
