The Cayman Islands were founded by people coming from Jamaica and Great Britan. These people learned how to farm and fish on the island and eventually raised chickens and pigs. As time passed, the people learned how to catch turtle, lobster and conch, as well as how to cook with them. Most Cayman dishes are still simple meals, often using a meat, a bread or starchy vegetable, coconut milk, and a few simple seasonings. Most traditional dishes take a long time to cook, and are extremely labor intensive. Conch stew and turtle stew are two favorite dishes and are made using ingredients that can be found in and around the home.
