Meet the Author

Born in Guadeloupe, Babette de Rozières learned the complexities of creole cooking from her grandmother and from there began her love affair with West Indian cuisine. From the beginning of her culinary career in a tiny restaurant a stone's throw from the Folies Bergères in Paris, her taste for challenges led her to run a restaurant in Saint Tropez, before opening her own restaurant in Guadeloupe. She is now head chef and manager of the famous restaurant La Table de Babette in Paris, where she offers her customers the delights of Creole cuisine.

    The perfect cookbook

    It was a gift to a friend for Christmas. I wanted something different from the ordinary cookbook and this one was perfect. The look of the book was attractive. The recipes look delicious, practical and easy to read. It was also different...it stood out from the other books. Appearance is a ten.
