Taste of Cultures
At the monthly Taste of Cultures event hosted at the Lion's Den on St. Eustatius, one of the Caribbean Ties exhibition structures was used! This part of the exhibition presents the changes in indigenous Caribbean diets and beliefs as a consequence of colonial invasion. It also discusses what types of foodstuffs that are indigenous to the Caribbean are nowadays used in kitchens internationally.
