Backa Yawd Caribbean Cuisine, a hot idea in Cornwall, is looking to spice things up. The new restaurant business spearheaded by Lee Theodore and Roger Caron will be featuring some of their sizzling dishes at two events this week in Cornwall.
“Backa Yawd Caribbean Cuisine is the result of 10 years of conversations had over a many great meals. For the past 8 months-we have organized a few pop up dinners to test the viability of the idea in Cornwall.”, explains Lee Theodore, one half of the dynamic duo. Backa Yawd can be described as a fusion of Haitian Heritage and Jamaican roots in a culinary fare that is accessible to the masses.
“We are currently working hard to secure a grant proposal through the local Economic Development Office working with Candy Pollard and are confident that this going to be a success for our local population. Our restaurant will be a one of a kind outlet. In the meantime, we are still striving to capitalize on partnerships to showcase this food and offer it the general public,” says Lee Theodore.
This Thursday, January 28th from 6pm to 9pm at Bar Q, Backa Yawd will be offering a 7 item, in house table d’hote offering, with 3 take home items and an in house friendly rib competition between the two eateries.

Theodore explains, “This will be events number 5 and 6 over the past 8 months and each event has taught us something new to incorporate into our living business plan. More importantly however, we want the public to have as many chances as possible to try our meals, and share in a one of a kind offering in our city and become familiar with a new taste.”
