Comprised of chef duo Spanky and News, Los Angeles-based Trap Kitchen has served up dishes to an epic range of celebrities from Wiz Khalifa to Martha Stewart. Hailing from the neighborhood of Compton, the two-man team is known for a versatile range of culinary treats that draw references from Soul Food to Hawaiian delicacies. Determined to put their skills to the test, HYPEBEAST challenged the duo to give us some non-traditional holiday meal inspiration by creating two courses of Caribbean inspired flavors using BACARDÍ as a key ingredient.

Already familiar with the tastes of the region, having grown up in a household of Caribbean descent, chef Spanky brought some serious island heat to the table in the form of a Jerk Chicken and Shrimp Pineapple Bowl. Then, flexing their skills, Trap Kitchen gave us a rare treat by prepping us a BACARDÍ Pineapple Rum Cake to cool down from the spice. The dishes were paired with a Ginger Snap cocktail to compliment the food and get the party vibe going.

Watch the complete video above, read below to learn how to prepare the Trap Kitchen’s Caribbean x Compton holiday meal, and make sure to drop by the BACARDÍ website for more island inspiration.
