Sorry, I’m still harping on about the food of French St. Martin. Could be I’m a little obsessed? It’s just that I have all these lovely photos to share:
The combination of imported French products and local fare is just too tempting. And the bread, oooh the bread. I couldn’t get enough of these poppy-encrusted loaves. Would love to have an authentic recipe if anyone has one!
Years ago, grocery shopping was a little more difficult in French St. Martin. But now, there are several modern “supermarches” on the island that bring in fresh fish, meats and produce on a daily basis:
Here’s a nifty little mayo / mustard combo product I wish I could get in the States. Makes the perfect deviled eggs:
And there’s plenty of vin! All kinds!
There are also lots of fantastic local products. This hot sauce works wonderfully in sauces, glazes or dips:
And the flavor-infused rum in French St. Martin is perfectly addictive. Oops! We drank all that so there’s no photo.
Going to the supermarche is an everyday thrill for me when we visit French St. Martin. I do get a few sideways glances with all my photo-taking, but what the heck?
I need a sugar daddy to pay for all this stuff!
Well, that’s not quite what I meant, but it is kinda cute.
