If you can't make it along to the local street party, community carnival or mini Mardis Gras, this menu of colourful carnival food will ensure you don't miss out on the food side of things. We've invited our favourite Carribbean-inspired food to the party...all ideal for a foodie fiesta at home.

 

Home Carnival Tip #1: Get Ahead

Save on stress with a little clever prep work. Cleaning your barbecue, preparing salads and marinating meat and fish can all be
done ahead of time (the food will taste better for it, too). And don’t worry if you can’t get all the food cooked at once – pre-make a batch of finger bites to hand round while the main dishes are cooking.

Home Carnival Tip #3: Keep Comfy

There might not be a full-on street parade to watch, but  you could put on your own talent shows, fancy dress garden discos or talent contests. If you’re short of chairs, lay a few rugs on the ground – for a picnic-style carnival food fiesta.
