Saint Martin Fete de la Cuisine: a festival of world famous food

 

Each first week in November, the island of Saint Martin welcomes renowned Michelin chefs from across the world to spice up the already flavorful foods of the Caribbean.  This year, four award winning and acclaimed gastro chefs from France, Holland and Belgium, will partake in the Saint Martin’s Fete de la Cuisine, giving all visitors a taste of modern food utopia. Locals are even encouraged to show off their own culinary talent by entering the Guava Berry, Potato Pudding and creative art contests.

Founded in 2005, Fete de la Cuisine gives Michelin chefs the opportunity to sprinkle their knowledge of flavors and technique on foreign cuisine. Foodies recognize the Michelin name as the dominant star rating system that determines a restaurant and chef’s culinary status with a three-star rating system.  Others recognize the name as the tire manufacturing corporation, which is where the travel and food guide originated.

Chefs spend time behind the line in local restaurants for an entire week, adding diversity to popular menus and creating revolutionary concepts for many Saint Martin restaurants. With 400 restaurants all contributing to the Saint Martin title of “Gourmet Capital of the Caribbean” the savory and spirited courses served are …
