Using the right amount of spices for example is essential – either for
spicing up the taste or for coloring the dish. The visual attractiveness
of the dish is also important, and a balance between colors and
proportion differentiates. Each traditional dish has a special cooking
method, which is more or less general in all of Falkland Island’s
regions. Meat is one of the main elements of most Falkland Islands`
