Grand Cayman is the largest of the three islands in the Cayman Islands , It is approximately 75 miles South-west of its other island little cayman and around 90 from the other Cayman Brac. It is known for being shaped like a big claw and is a territory of the UK George town. Grand Cayman has a popular 7 mile beach located off the West coast north of George town and is meant to be one of the finest beaches in the world.
The islands being close to Cuba, the island take influences from both Europe and The Caribbean. When the thee islands of Cayman first merged, many dishes were based around simple rices, flour and sugar which were considered to be luxuries. And the dishes still remain to be created around these ingredients and still remain relatively simple to serve traditional meals. Vegetables are used mainly to spice up local porks and beefs such as sweet peppers, onions and pumpkin. Also, the Cayman Islands are known for creating yummy fish dishes and many seafood dishes still remain to be cooked in cast iron skillets, often creating fish fritters, which are seasoned not in batter but in herbs and spices and fried in coconut oils to create fresh fried dough balls.
For some cultual context, visit the Cayman Islands national museum in George Town, a museum dedicated to the preservation, research and displays of all of the Caymanian heritage which opened in 1990. Another museum also located in George Town is The Cayman Martine Treasure Museum, focusing on the islands seafaring days. The Queen Elizabeth Botanic park is a beautiful nature preserve which was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1994, which remains just as pretty hosting the annual orchard show as well as the Chelsea flower show.
