Food

Curaçao’s love affair for Dutch cheese is naturally inherent; especially since the national dish “keshi yena” comes in a hollowed rind of Gouda. There are many places that sell top quality cheese like Gouda and Edam in big wheels to take home as souvenirs, and no self respecting island get-together would be complete without some “bolita di keshi”(deep-fried cheese balls) as a snack.

Tamarind surprises your taste buds simultaneously with both sweet and sour flavors. But beyond sending your tongue into a pleasurable quandary of confusion and providing a distinctive tang to many culinary dishes, tamarind also contains a bounty of healthful benefits.

As an Antillean by blood, I constantly crave heat. And it’s not enough to merely feel the tropical sun on my bare skin. I need to consume heat. When I return to the Caribbean, I don’t feel completely at home until I’ve burned both the tip of my nose and the tip of my tongue. This might explain my addiction to pika.
