A recent vacation to the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe was a food fanatic’s paradise. Because Guadeloupe is part of France, all the culinary delights travelers expect from a trip to France were readily available, from fresh baguettes every morning to crepes sold from food trucks at the beach.

The French emphasis on good food was so strong in Guadeloupe that, when we compared several boat companies offering a day-long excursion to a nearby island, each boat company gave a brief description of the fish and coral at the destination, but went into far more detail about the lunch that would be served. Combining that French devotion to cuisine with the abundance of Caribbean seafood and produce grown in Guadeloupe led to some memorable meals.
