FEATURE: IN THE DIASPORA: Guyanese Cuisine Culture – By G. J. Giddings

By G. J. Giddings – Dr. Jahwara Giddings is Professor of History at Central State University

It is always a good time to reiterate Guyana’s food traditions, practices, and prospects, and to emphasize the power and potential of good food in general. Just as food does amazing things at the table, it could be a source of national unity through development of a thoughtful and positive national food culture. In fact, there is a contemporary cuisine scene unfolding in Guyana, with great potential for our food security, health, economic enterprise and yes even national pride and unity.

There are global calls, if not cries, for more thoughtful and sustainable food systems which demand leadership from agriculturally rich and culturally dynamic places like Guyana.  And with projected oil wealth, and good governance, Guyana could lead and model modern sustainable food practices.    Continue reading

Guyana: Tourism recovery after COVID-19 – By Annette Arjoon-Martins

By

On certain occasions, I use the space in this column to deal with a pressing subject using the expertise of someone proficient in that field.  Today, as we contemplate what Guyana will be like after COVID-19, the column presents the viewpoint of my wife, Annette Arjoon-Martins, knowledgeable in matters of travel and the environment in Guyana.
