Grenada and sister islands named ‘culinary capital’

The World Food Travel Association (WFTA) has declared Grenada and its sister islands Carriacou, and Petite Martinique, as the world's first Culinary Capital. Culinary Capitals is a regenerative tourism programme devised by the WFTA to spotlight culinary cultures around the world as the tourism industry begins to recover from the disruption caused by the COVID-19 around the globe.
The integration of spices into Grenada's cuisine has resulted in an overall robust and flavourful national food profile. From fine dining to casual beachside restaurants and even street food, it is undeniable that Grenadians have a taste and flair for delicious food, said the WFTA. Therefore the islands are “perfectly positioned” as a Culinary Capital, with their many distinctive culinary assets to showcase.
Erik Wolf, executive director of the World Food Travel Association, said that smaller destinations like Grenada need every competitive advantage, which Culinary Capitals provides. “Savvy food-loving travellers are adding destinations like Grenada to their bucket lists right now. They are eagerly waiting for when they can travel again,” he concluded. (Image from Unsplash)
