Falkland Island Cuisine

The Falkland Islands are basically represented by two wider territories: East Falkland Island and West Falkland Island and a couple hundred small islands. Spanish and Argentinian people occupied the territory, so local influences of these strongly personalised cuisines can be found, especially in the central port, Port Stanley. In this town, the most consumed dishes are the fish fillets or the grilled fish, the seafood salads with local herbs and the sea trout, served with fritters or steamed veggies. The smoko is well known in all the Falkland Islands and it basically consists in a snack of tea or coffee and home-made cakes. In the camps, there are many home-made dishes and very traditional meals, while in ports or towns, like Stanley, the restaurants provide a mixture of more cuisines, but the most important one remains the British, as the traditional British meal fish and chips is very popular.

The Falkland Islands' cuisine is unique because it uses elements from various cooking traditions borrowed from their neighbours and developed from their own traditional dishes. The diversity of vegetables and cereals found in the Falkland Islands is also noticed in the delicious dishes belonging to their cuisine. While there are no specific or unique preparation methods for the Falkland Islands` cooking, attention to detail is important in the Falkland Islands` cuisine. Using the right amount of spices for example is essential – either for spicing up the taste or for colouring the dish. The visual attractiveness of the dish is also important, and a balance between colours and proportion differentiates. Each traditional dish has a special cooking method, which is more or less general in all of the Falkland Islands' regions. Meat is one of the main elements of most the Falkland Islands' dishes and cured and smoked hams are often parts of delicious dishes.

The inhabitants of the Falkland Islands enjoy celebrating their life and culture with many occasions. Some of the most important celebrations in the Falkland Islands are HM the Queen's Birthday on 21st of April, Liberation Day on 14th of June and Battle Day on 8th of December. With this occasions and also, with the occasion of the religious holidays, the Falkland Islands' inhabitants consume meat pies, boiled sausages of mutton (with garlic, minced meat, onions, tomato paste and a lot of pepper and ground spices), veil, pork and lamb, which are all very consistent meals, served mainly at lunch as main course and they are all British inspired.
