Flavors of Martinique

Like every French region, Martinique has its own culinary specialties and traditions.

Everything starts off with a glass of coconut or peanut punch, shrubb or aged rum nibbling savory pork pâtés.

 For dessert, there's "hidden love," a cake that conceals in its centre (between layers of pastry and sponge) banana, guava or coconut jam made with cane sugar, Pain doux (a butter-free whipped cake) or Robinson cake filled with island jam.

Or for a lighter option after the feast, there's passion fruit or soursop sherbets, coconut flan, eaten on its own or with a fruit coulis.
