“Where the hell is Belize?” with Wes Allen at the Rusholme Supper Club
Join the Rusholme Supper Club at its Saturday, June 16 meeting for “Where the hell is Belize?” with Wes Allen
Wes Allen returns from a recent trip to Belize with a menu inspired by the simple but nourishing cuisine of this little known Central American country. Many people are surprised to find an English-speaking country hidden on the Caribbean coast of Central America. Despite sharing borders with Guatemala and Mexico, Belize has more cultural similarities with the Anglo-Caribbean than it does with Latin America, due to its history as Britain's only colony (British Honduras) on the Central American isthmus.
Wes Allen hosts popup brunch and southern barbecue events in his backyard and has been a vendor at the Toronto Underground Market selling homemade spice blends.
The menu is based on the Belizean staples of fish, coconut milk, plantain and cassava.
· Garnaches - open face crispy tortillas with with refried beans, cheese, onions and hot sauce
· Snapper rundown, red snapper with a coconut milk chili sauce
· Fried plantain
· Cole slaw
· Coconut rice and beans
· Carrot-habenero hot sauce
· Cassava pudding with vanilla sauce
