We’re a couple of married ‘Saints’ – people who are born or from St Helena Island. We want to share and celebrate St Helena food with you and the world.
We love our food – the smell of a pot of Plo, the sweet taste of a coconut finger, food has the power to transport you to happy memories. As a community we learn from each other how to cook the tasty dishes of the island, because on St Helena we believe in feeding you until you are fill, and then just a bit more. But no recipe is final, no absolute version. Everyone has their own specific way to cook their favourite dishes. Whether it is adding a secret ingredient that your Mum used, or twigging the ingredients as they became available. St Helena has special and unique food.
