Kassav

When you drive over here there are lots of people who stand at the side of the road selling things, this ranges from local fruits- melons, bananas, mangoes, to handmade jewellery or baked goods. The other day my Host Dad came home with some Kassav for me to try.
It is a traditional Caribbean bread which is made by grinding down root fibres to create a flour that has a very nutty taste. They are thin and crispy, similar to a pita bread and the fillings can be either sweet or savoury.

The Kassav that had been brought home was filled with coconut, sugar and some spice.
