The Flavors of Belize Cookbook has a nice little ad mentioning how great of a gift it would make for Christmas. It says you should be able to find it at Courts. They have many great recipes in the cookbook.

Celebrate Mayan style

Contrary to popular belief, the Mayan calendar doesn’t predict the world will end Friday.

Take it from Tanya McNab, a Belizean cookbook author.

Belize has one of the largest concentrations of Mayans living in one country. Friday will be a day to party hardy there. It’s not only the last day of a Great Cycle in their rather lengthy calendar, but also the beginning of a new one.

“It’s a new beginning, rather than the end,” McNab says in a telephone interview from her home in Belize. “People in Belize are doing celebrations in all different ways.”

The Central American country traces its Mayan roots to 2000 B.C. and had a Mayan population of 1 million in the 7th Century, she says. Now, the population is about 300,000. Over the centuries, the Belizean people have been influenced by 13 different cultures, McNab says.

The country’s cuisine shares some characteristics of Mexican dishes, but there are major differences caused, in part, by language.

Unlike other Central American countries, English is the primary language in Belize, attracting English speakers from around the world. There are many people from China, as well as from Lebanon, East India and, of course, Great Britain, living in Belize.

“It’s really a collection of all these cultures that has given us our unique food,” McNab says.

McNab, 28, attended college at Florida International University, where she majored in fine arts and graphic design. Returning home, she started publishing Flavors of Belize, a magazine distributed in hotels, restaurants and other tourist hubs. She included recipes for Belizean food and found tourists were hungering for more.

That sparked her interest in authoring a cookbook. When the frenzy about the Mayan calendar started this year, she decided it would be a great time to publish it.

So “Flavors of Belize: The Cookbook,” is for sale now. It describes the country’s “ancient history, diverse culture and exotic cuisine,” McNab says.

The book includes more than 120 recipes she compiled from her mother and grandmother, as well as chefs from throughout the country, focusing on soups, salads, seafood, vegetarian dishes and desserts.

McNab says seafood lovers will really enjoy the recipes her book presents, like grouper served in a banana leaf.

For dessert, Maya Chocolate Cake should satisfy the sweetest tooth.

“Flavors of Belize: The Cookbook” is available for sale at $39.95 at www.flavorsofbelize.com.

Flavours Goes International

The Flavours of Belize Cookbook was launched in September of last year - and since then, the publisher Tanya McNab has been pushing her product wherever she can. You've seen her on this newscast and other media outlets more than a few times - but now, she's taken her show on the road. McNab recently appeared on a morning show in Tampa Florida - and she told us about the experience and the exposure.

The coconut curry shrimp can be found here in Belize at Elvi’s Kitchen on San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
