West Indian cuisine has been influenced by many: the Tainos and Caribs who were the original inhabitants, and the diverse settlers who came to the islands, including the Indians, Chinese, Dutch, English, French and Spanish. In times of old, most of the cooking was done outdoors. These Dutch pots are perfect for slowly stewing or boiling to produce an authentic Caribbean dish like in the days of old. Use them to prepare soups like fish tea, pepperpot and peanut, or main dishes like rice and peas or ackee and saltfish. These pots are made from Aluminium and include the lid.
