Culture of St. Lucia
St. Lucia's culture has evolved from the intermingling of the many different groups who have participated in its history. A visitor is likely to drive on the British side of the road to an Indian restaurant in a French town greeted all along the way in Creole. One of the most accessible expressions of St. Lucia's rich cultural heritage is its cuisine. The fertile volcanic soil of the island yields an enormous supply of produce and the island is one of the leading banana exporters in the Caribbean. St. Lucia's tropical fruits include mangoes papayas pineapples sour sops passion fruit guavas and coconuts. Local chefs combine the island's fresh produce with a wide variety of fresh seafood to create curries Creole-style entrees and pepper pot stews. Callaloo soup made from a leafy green similar to spinach is the national dish.
