We chatted with students about the National Dish of Barbados which is Flying Fish and Coucou.
'Coucou and flying is a recipe made with corn meal, okra, flying fish and topped with an aromatic sauce of tomato, onion, chives, thyme, fresh pepper, garlic and other herbs. The fish can be steamed, battered & fried or grilled. Coucou is also known as Fungi in other Caribbean islands such as Dominica, Antigua and the Virgin Islands. The Italians prepare a similar version of coucou called pollenate. The recipe for coucou was passed down from African slaves who came to the island in 1644. The recipe requires consistent stirring of the coucou until it reaches a smooth, even distribution of ingredients and a firmness to be eaten with a fork. Bajans have invented a tool just for this purpose called a “coucou stick.”
+Rhoda Green of Barbados Carolinas gave a history of the connection between Barbados and Carolinas. The British families who settled in Barbados during slavery times and built plantations to produce sugar. The first born of the second generation stayed in Barbados to run the plantations. The second and third born moved to the Carolinas and settled there.
+Rhoda Green also cautioned the students not to wear camouflage clothes to Barbados. The military soldiers wear camouflage as their uniform, to prevent confusion she warned the students about wearing those fashions.
