Creole Kitchen is an original collection of recipes from the French Caribbean. Creole food is one of the first fusion foods, drawing in influences from years of trading history and mixing cultures on the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. This sunshine-filled book features 100 recipes from Prawns Colombo to Creole Cassoulet, from Coconut Slaw to Saltfish Boudins, from Flambe Bananas to Pineapple Fritters and delicious rum-laced punch and cocktails. This is food to truly make the mouth water and bear you away to a Caribbean paradise. Drawing inspiration from her childhood kitchen, the bright and engaging author, Vanessa, is on a mission to spread the love, sunshine and laughter that Caribbean Creole food brings. The recipes are both delicious and easy to make, and Vanessa offers substitution ideas for traditional Caribbean ingredients, although they are increasingly available in supermarkets and grocers everywhere. A cookbook for anyone with a sense of adventure who longs for sunshine flavours.

About the Author:

Born in Guadeloupe, Vanessa Bolosier is half-Guadeloupian and half-Martiniquan. She moved to France when she was 17 and worked as a fashion model while studying marketing and publishing. On moving to London she decided to quit her job in publishing for her true love - food. In 2011 she founded Carib Gourmet, a company specialising in luxury Caribbean food and confectionery, winning a Great Taste Award for her Coco Gourmand coconut sweets. She also runs a cookery school and supper club of the same name. Her recipes have been featured in the Guardian.
