A Taste of History | Episode | The Rum Trade
Rum was so valuable in the 18th Century, that it was often preferred over money as currency. Rum was the key ingredient in the Triangle Trade that exchanged guns, gold and slaves for this precious liquid. We travel to Guyana to see how Rum is made, and to explore the legend of El Dorado, the city of gold. Chef Staib cooks traditional Guyanan dishes using local ingredients.
