Come with CaribCrate Escapes to the Tobago Blue Food festival

Are you a foodie looking for a unique culinary experience? Look no further than the Tobago Blue Food Festival, taking place on October 15th, 2023. This festival celebrates the versatile and delicious dasheen plant, also known as taro, which is a staple in Caribbean cuisine.

The term "Blue Food" is synonymous with dasheen, a tall-growing tropical plant that is similar in appearance to the ornamental elephant-ear plant and cocoyam. The leaves, stems, and underground parts of the plant are all edible, and some varieties of the root vegetable turn varying shades of blue and indigo when cooked.

At the Tobago Blue Food Festival, you can sample a wide variety of dasheen-based dishes, including dasheen wine, dasheen ice cream, and other products made from the different parts of the plant. This is a unique opportunity to experience the rich and diverse flavors of Caribbean cuisine.
