Fête des la Cuisinières

With the possible exception of the celebration at Carnival, this is the most colorful event of the year in the French West Indian island of Guadeloupe. The Women Cooks’ Festival begins with a morning service at the cathedral and a parade of women in Creole dress. The highlight of the festival is the five-hour feast prepared by the dozen or so members of the Association of Women Chefs. The Creole dishes they prepare include blaffs (a fish or shellfish dish in a sauce), boudins (sausage), and crabes farcis (stuffed crabs). Discuss
