e Kittitians and Nevisians put local produce, seafood, spices, and game to excellent use in their cuisine. The region's abundance of fresh fish, fruits, and vegetables, helps cooks on St. Kitts and Nevis fuse local fare with Caribbean spice.

Where should you start when looking for dining on St. Kitts and Nevis? A good place to begin is in Basseterre, St. Kitts' capital, where restaurants represent a range of cuisines. Other cities, such as Charlestown or Newcastle on Nevis, also have many varied types of restaurants, but local fare is also easy to find.

Breakfast usually consists of saltfish and johnny cakes...,

St. Kitts and Nevis are mountainous isles, and growing fruits and vegetables can often be difficult in this type of terrain. But the fertile soil makes up for the slopes and rises. Cassavas, yams, pumpkins, avocados, breadfruit, golden apples, gineps, wild cherries, and seagrapes are among the islands' bountiful harvests.

Seafood is extremely important to the island diet. Spiny lobsters, crabs, conch, shrimp, and snapper are common delicacies, especially when paired with West Indian curries. Some popular main dishes are rikkita beef (beef marinated in champagne with Italian dressing), cookup (rice and peas with meat), salt fish, and roasted suckling pig. Goat water, also known as goat stew with fresh vegetables and dumplings, or "droppings." Breakfast usually consists of saltfish and johnny cakes, with fresh coconut juice to wash it down, but saltfish really shines in the national dish of Stewed Saltfish with Dumplings Spicy Plantains, and Breadfruit.

Coffee is served throughout most of the day, so are fresh fruit juices, squeezed from local, hand-picked produce. In Basseterre, ask for a glass of fairling, a local fruit punch, or a bottle of sugary grapefruit drink called Ting. If you get the chance, take a short trip to one of the many sugarcane fields. Most farmers will gladly sell you a large stalk. Pull back the husk and suck on the juices with a glass of Caribbean rum, preferably a dark rum to contrast with the sweetness of the sugarcane.

For dessert, try an upside-down pineapple cherry cake, perhaps with a scoop of soursop ice cream. Seasoned fruit, especially gineps, mangoes, and grapefruit, are also special after-dinner treats on St. Kitts and Nevis, where culinary techniques are simple, the results delicious.
