Curried duck is a popular dish to serve at a “river lime,” an all-day outing when family and close friends hangout, or “lime,” by the beds of Trinidad’s many rivers or at the ocean beaches. One of the pleasures of a river lime is cooking foods on site, so marinated meats are brought, along with precooked rice, ground provisions, salads, and drinks. The men tend the cooking of the meat over an open fire while downing Caribs or Stags, both locally made beers, and joking. The women lounge and watch the children who splash in the water or play along the shores.
