The foods of Saint-Barthelemy
Saint-Barthélemy, also called Saint Bart's, island of the Lesser Antilles in the eastern Caribbean Sea. An overseas collectivity of France since 2007, it was formerly a commune and, together with Saint-Martin, an arrondissement of the French overseas département of Guadeloupe.The island’s cuisine of St. Barthelemy also known as St. Barth is a blend of French, African, Creole, Italian, Indian, Asian, Caribbean and others. The fresh seafood is brought ashore with the daily catch as daily flights from France bring the finest meats, wines and dairy foods, and because the fresh produce almost spills from the markets, because of all of this, the food is amazing. More than 70 restaurants dot the island.
From the simplest barefoot beach bar to outstanding fine-dining restaurants, St. Barth cuisine is unparalleled anywhere in the West Indies. St. Barth’s devotees return year after year. This writer has clocked numerous visits to the island as well as managing and cooking at a beach estate on the island.
