Few persons who come to Guyana fail to be impressed by the taste, presentation and variety in Guyanese cuisine. In fact Guyanese take great pride in their skills in the kitchen. Festivals and public holidays are often associated with particular food preparations. For example which Christmas is complete without garlic pork and pepper pot? Who can separate cross buns from Easter? It is a rare Hindu wedding that does not offer “seven curry”.
