Pepper Pot: The Allegorical Dish of Caribbean Culture

This exhibit provides an overview and description of the Caribbean dish ‘pepper pot’ and elaborates on how the preparation and use of this dish echoes the efficiency and effectiveness of provision grounds. Inspired by its inclusion in Jamaica Kincaid’s poem “Girl” and the Caribbean cultural philosophy of ‘making do,’ the exhibit seeks to showcase the embracing of that philosophy within this staple of Caribbean Cuisine
