Bermuda cuisine is often superb in taste and texture. But they are for those who do not have to watch their weight or calorie or cholesterol count!  Once, until about the 1930s, we Bermudians grew much of our own food. Nowadays, more than 90% of all Bermuda food is imported. Only carrots cannot by law be imported.

Note that "Bermuda cuisine" really means how the food is prepared or served, unlike in most other countries where it is also caught or grown or distilled or manufactured. Not many local websites will tell visitors and newcomers to note that almost all Bermuda cuisine and other cuisines are imported and that almost all food including restaurant food sold in Bermuda comes from overseas, mostly from the USA, and is resold here at prices often very appreciably more expensive than restaurants in the USA. After March, local lobster, very expensive by American standards - especially in MA, ME, CT, MD, RI and SC - is not available until at least the fall. At other times of the year, if lobster is on the menu, it will be Maine or Canadian lobster.

There are no local kosher foods. Books on Bermuda Cuisine include:
