LargeUp Investigates: Bake and Shark

Words by Tishanna Williams—
bake-and-shark

You don’t mess with a Trinibagonian’s belly. Food is all important here and we take it very seriously. But with the recent news headlines about diminishing shark populations and subsequent conservation efforts, could Trinis soon be forced to give up one of their favorite dishes? In order to get the real bake and shark story for you, LargeUp had to do some heavy research so we packed our sunblock, beach mats and a few Stags for the road and made our way to Maracas Beach to talk to some of the vendors behind this dish personally.

Paramin-Matthew-Fung

As with other Caribbean islands, Trinidad’s history is a rich with diversity in population and traditions. Whatever the occasion, chances are there is a community in Trinidad that recognizes it and makes a spectacle of its observation. Nonetheless, to the disdain of many village elders, there has been rampant cultural erasure as communities struggle to preserve the history and heritage that has given birth to Trinidad’s international reputation and identity as a tourist destination.

St. Patrick’s Day has become a global phenomenon, with people all over the world donning green and downing Guinness in honor of Ireland’s patron saint every March 17. But there’s only one place besides Ireland itself where it is observed as a public holiday. Nicknamed the “Emerald Isle of the Caribbean” on account of its strong Irish presence and the island’s topographical resemblance to Ireland, Montserrat doesn’t just celebrate St. Patty’s Day. It hosts a 10-day-long St. Patrick’s Festival that is one of the British territory’s most popular annual events.
