The best way to experience the heart and soul of a culture will always be through its food. In Belize, we even gauge time with our bellies. Breakfast, lunch, evening tea and dinner are the dividers of our days. It isn’t uncommon to already be thinking about lunch just after we took the last bite of our morning meat pie. In fact, it’s almost expected!
The Belizean flavor profile is a generous mix of cultural adaptations overlapping to create a uniquely tasty experience. There is the flavorful taste of the Creole, the heartiness of the Garifuna, the zing of the Mestizo, the richness of the Maya, the spice of the East Indian and much more in our local dishes.
While we may be a small country, we have a big heart and an even bigger soul in our kitchens. Belize Food Tours takes you on a gastronomic journey, providing insight into the many flavors of Belizean cuisine. Taste authentic samplers from beloved restaurants, venture off the beaten path to our favorite mom and pop kitchens and learn how to make staple dishes in private or group cooking classes. It’s the perfect way to explore local flavors without eating a whole plate, plus you’ll end the tour feeing like a local culinary expert.
