Grace foods established caribbean food week in 2012. This year from 22nd August to 29th August at Windrush Square in Brixton, London you can find a mouth watering caribbean celebration of food, thanks to Grace foods!
I received a food hamper from Grace foods to help celebrate it. I thought that this was the perfect opportunity for me to understand more about my caribbean culture. Grace foods is the authentic taste of the Caribbean, they have a diverse and authentic range of products. In my hamper I received a selection of goodies which I used to create Salt fish pancakes with a choice of jerk bbq or hot pepper sauce starter, and a chicken soup for the main meal.
