Before I met my Belizean wife I had no idea about Belize and its food, I have known her for 18 years and during that time we have been back to Belize on numerous visits to her family and just to have a break. It is due to her and my love of all things spicy that I opened my little diner in Gosport, which quickly gained a reputation for good economical food, and was number one on trip advisor for places to eat for all the time I was running it. in this blog, you will find many recipes from Belize as well as other Mexican and Caribean favorites.

Stew Chicken is probably the national dish and I have included the recipe of course.

Belize is a small country population around 300,000, the largest concentration is where we live in Belize City, the whole country is basically a nature reserve with a wide diversity of animals and birds.

The coast is bordered by the second largest barrier reef in the world, and provides for spectacular diving and fishing .

Belize Districts

You can drive in from the coast and down the hummingbird highway through Dangriga and stop off at Placencia or drive on to on to Toledo.

Or go north through Orange Walk and on to Mexico

at the top end of the reef there is San Pedro and Caye Caulker, very popular holiday destinations.


Born in 1952 in Croydon UK I am re married to a lady from Belize. Inspired by the food in her country I have opened a small Diner serving great food.
