Pig feet seem to have a bad reputation here in the states. Normally when we think of pork, we’re thinking ribs, pork chops, or bacon. However, pig foot souse is a very popular dish across the caribbean. My first experience with pig foot souse was in Turks and Caicos, when I was invited to a friend’s mother’s house for breakfast. At first glance, it doesn’t look super appetizing, but it smells and tastes delicious! I’ve been on the hunt for it when I go to the caribbean ever since, but apparently this dish is only served in the mornings for breakfast. I can’t get up that early on vacation!
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos is a beautiful island. It has some of the best beaches i’ve ever visited, and the people are super friendly! One thing I did notice on my first (of many) trips though, is that it is not immediately obvious where to go to experience local culture and food. Grace Bay is ranked one of the best beaches in the world, and has many luxury hotels and condominiums on its beachfront, but they are generally European style. Check out some of these places to get a little local flavor.
