Sugar and spice: The flavours of the French Caribbean

FRANCE 24 takes you to Guadeloupe in the French Caribbean to taste some local cuisine! At the market, Madame Excellent shows us exotic fruit. We then meet Clara at the harbour. She's a fish expert and knows how to cook it just right for her waterfront restaurant customers. We then take the ferry to Marie-Galante, where we try one of the world’s strongest white rums. Sugar cane fields take up half the farmland here. We end our culinary journey with small round cakes, known as "torments of love".
