A Fresh Taste of the Caribbean
Pack your palate, we are taking you on an epicurean getaway in the Lesser Antilles, to Guadeloupe Islands – a French-Caribbean
archipelago comprising of five unique islands bursting with flavor, very evident in the exquisite cuisine you will encounter.
While the islands share culinary similarities, each is known for adding a distinct ingredient to the Guadeloupe dining experience – Grande-Terre for its sophisticated dining scene, Basse-Terre for its selection of Creole restaurants, La Désirade for its fresh seafood, Marie-Galante for its organic farms, and Les Saintes for its sweet coconut custard treat Tourment d’amour.
In Guadeloupe Islands, “culinary scenes” are a way of life, as the rich culinary heritage, which expresses Guadeloupe’s French, African, Indian and Caribbean cultural influences, pervades everyday life. Time honored cooking traditions of French and Creole dishes, co-exist deliciously with contemporary styles and flavors- and when fused, produce mouthwatering specialties such as Nouvelle-Creole Cuisine – a modern interpretation of Creole dishes savored by both locals and visitors. The original name for Guadeloupe, given by the Arawak, is Karukera which means land of beautiful water and not only has the beauty been preserved but it is also a rich source of really fresh seafood. Your Mahi-Mahi, Lobster and even seaweed goes from the ocean to your plate in a mere few hours, resulting in a delicious awakening of your taste buds.
