Guadeloupe’s Cuisine

Guadeloupe’s cuisine mirrors its many cultures. To the typically Creole, dishes have been added the finesse of French cuisine, the spice of African cookery, the subtlety of Hindu and Southeast Asian recipes. Fresh seafood appears on most menus. Other specialties: shellfish, smoked fish, stuffed land crabs, stewed conch, and curry dishes. Guadeloupe is considered one of the right culinary capitals of the Caribbean, with some 200 restaurants recommended by the Tourist Office. Local rum drinks often precede a meal and imported French wines often accompany it. Prices for a three-course meal for one person, without wine, range from inexpensive to moderate to expensive. Guadeloupe’s most colorful culinary event is the Fête des Cuisinières held annually in early August.
