Fun with Bajan food on Independence Day!

Today, I woke up bursting with pride because Barbados, my homeland, is celebrating 50 years of Independence.

Of course, I took time to prepare and treat my friends and loved ones to a few Bajan delicacies–with a twist.

When I posted a photo of my fishcakes on my Instagram, I got questions about how to make the Barbados “flags” I served them with. I saved the template so I could share. Click to download the .pdf file.

Quick instructions: Cut along the solid lines, fold along the dotted lines, snip a “V” at the edges and glue to toothpicks along the fold of the flag.

To all Barbadians, wherever you are, whatever you do, have a happy Independence Day!
