A note from our editors:
We love food… we love Belizean food… and we want to share it with you! Belizean food in particular is distinctive; from the melding of rich cultural food traditions, and the simple abundance of a tropical climate full of unique fruit, fish, and spices.
Our editors have differing amateur culinary experience that (we hope!) brings more depth and interest to our posts. Recently, we have started including more information for people who want to cook Belizean food outside Belize, and people who want to find substitutes to make recipes lactose-free, etc.
We welcome comments that you might have, and ask that you please comment on how our recipes work for you.
Thank you, and happy cooking!
