Captain Cook's Last Meal (2008)

Bajan Café

Explorer and captain in the British Navy, James Cook discovered Hawaii and became the first European to set foot on the coast of Australia. But culinarily, he left a footprint of a different sort, bringing all sorts of botanicals back to the Caribbean. It was he who was responsible for introducing breadfruit into Barbados, where it quickly became a staple. Accordingly, his meal at Bajan Café will consist of a pair of flying-fish filets, lightly breaded and sided with breadfruit cou-cou, a glorious mush containing little flecks of okra to help it slide down easy.
