One of America's most innovative chefs delves into a lesser-known aspect of global cuisine: the effect of crossing cultures, and therefore cuisines, in the world's tropical belt. Nearly all major European and Asian cultures have had adventures (and misadventures) in the tropics for more than a thousand years, leaving behind an exotic, tangled, and delicious web of influences. Once thought to be the simple home of the pineapple or coconut, the tropics from the Caribbean to Latin America to India to Vietnam are now understood to be one of the most fascinating culinary regions imaginable.

"Sometimes I call what I cook tropical French, but other people just seem to call it `Latitude'; what we mean is that from the Caribbean and Latin America to Asia and the South Pacific, we are free to choose, to experience, to taste our way around the world without leaving my kitchen or my dining room."About the Author:
Dominique Macquet was born on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. Over the decades, his taste buds have carried him through Southeast Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and even Africa. As chef-partner of Dominique's in the Hotel Maison Dupuy in the New Orleans French Quarter, Dominique quickly became a high-profile chef when he opened his contemporary French restaurant.
