The Pepperpot

This is an indigenous meal. It is also Guyana’s national dish: served on Christmas morning as breakfast and eaten however one chooses; whether bread or rice.  Made of hot peppers, beef/pork, salt, casareep (a thick brown sauce made from cassava root), gloves and cinnamon spice. This pot is reheated and eaten on several days because the casareep preserves the meat.

Chowmein! “How is this Guyanese food”? You might want to ask. As mentioned  before, Guyana is a land of six races. Chinese is one of them. Combine chicken, soy sauce, garlic, sweet peppers, and a mixture vegetables and chowmein.
