Antigua and Barbuda: Meal Review

I think Antigua and Barbuda was our first all around winner!  Everything we made turned out well and was enjoyed by all.

Curry Chicken Roti

Making our own curry powder was a blast, and it gave the chicken such good flavor.  It was a little too spicy for my taste, but it hasn’t bothered me in leftovers (it either mellowed over time or I adapted).  We also totally forgot the fresh cilantro the first time we made it, and that has been a great addition when we ate this for leftovers.  The roti bread was just different enough from tortillas and other flatbreads to justify making it from scratch.  It didn’t seem to fold into a square pocket as well as the photos and recipes I saw, but that didn’t bother me.  This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Rum Punch

We enjoyed breaking from our routine of the last 5 countries and making a fun drink to go with the meal.  It was a little too strong for me, but not bad after I watered it down a bit.

Flambéed Bananas

This is definitely one of my favorite dishes that we have cooked so far on this adventure!  Obviously lighting the rum on fire was fun, but the finished product was so warm, sweet, and gooey on the ice cream.  This is another keeper recipe that we will definitely be making again!
