Banking isn’t the only thing they do well on this tiny western Caribbean archipelago. The British territory also offers a unique food culture with roots that stretch back more than 300 years to the buccaneers who settled on the islands. “Old Caymanian” cuisine is an eclectic mix of British, Jamaican, and Central American influences. Although rare these days, turtle soup is the unofficial national dish. Among the other island delights are fried land crab, corn bread with custard, and a heavy cake made from coconut, cassava, sugar, and spice.
