New Book: Chef Babette de Rozières “La Bonne Cuisine de Babette”

Guadeloupean chef Babette De Rozieres will present her new book La Bonne Cuisine de Babette at the Festival des arts culinaires et de la gastronomie [Festival of Culinary Arts and Gastronomy] on July 24 and 25, 2010, in Guadeloupe.

A graduate in geography and history and former lecturer in Guadeloupe, she has made the world love Caribbean cuisine. Author of many books, she was the first to promote the Creole cuisine on television. In France, she has her own cooking program, “Le Babette Show.”

De Rozières is also author of numerous books such as Le Babette Book: Ces produits exotiques, j’en fais quoi? and Créole. In Créole’s preface, she explains, “I put down my roots in Guadeloupe, where nature is generous and instills a taste for work and play. In the West Indies, the art of cooking comes to us as an inheritance. There is no particular hour for eating. There is always something to taste within arm’s reach—a piece of fruit, a fritter, cane juice, coconut sherbet, confectionery [products] such as the delicious kilibibi [. . .] West Indians are gourmands by nature.”
