What to Expect

Our cooking experience takes place at Grum Ma’s House Cultural Center, which we founded to preserve and share the fascinating details of our Bahamian heritage. With instruction from a local cook, you will try your hands at cooking the Bahamian way with native ingredients. The cook’s tips and tricks are easy to follow so you don’t need any skills to make something delicious.

While the food is cooking, we will discuss various aspects of Bahamian culture, seeing Junkanoo artefacts around the center and learning about their use. Once the food is ready, we will dig in, savoring the unique Bahamian flavors. You’ll leave the day with your own authentic Bahamian experience and a local dish that you’ll be able to share with friends and family back home.
