Fish and Seafood: Something to satisfy every craving, be it a hearty stew like fish court bouillon, a rice dish like crab matété, or a whole fish like a coconut milk red snapper.

Meat and Poultry: Dishes like Creole cassoulet, Buccaneer turkey wings, breadfruit and pork paramentier highlight the diverse dishes in this section.

Sides: With exquisite recipes like plantain gratin, green banana cakes, and stewed green pigeon peas and yams, find the perfect dish to compliment your main course. 

Soups: A unique compilation of recipes like pâté en pot, sweet potato and ginger cream soup and coconut potage are sure to introduce a new family favorite. 

Sauces: Recipes like hot Creole sauce and chili purée will make the spice-lovers swoon and equally delicious, yet more mild, avocado cream will add that extra special touch to many a dish.

Syrups: Try a classic like cane syrup or more complex grenadine and passion fruit syrups in this unique chapter.

Desserts: Delicacies like Mont Blanc coconut cake, guava pastry, banana and rum fritters will help you round out any meal on a high note.

About the Author:

Vanessa Bolosier has true French Caribbean Creole heritage – half-Guadeloupian and half-Martiniquan, she was born and brought up in Guadeloupe and deeply immersed in the cooking on both islands.  She moved to France when she was 17 to study and worked as a professional model. On moving to London, she concentrated on her true love- food. Vanessa founded her company Carib Gourmet in 2011, specializing in exclusive Caribbean food and confectionary, including her award-winning Coco Gourmand coconut sweets. She also runs a private cookery school and supper club.
