Babette de Rozières, ambassador of fine Caribbean cuisine
Originally from Guadeloupe, Babette de Rozières discovered the culinary traditions of her island with her grandmother. She perfected her culinary skills in famous Parisian hotels: the Méridien, the Grand Hôtel, the Ambassador at the Ritz and the George V. Combining fun, dexterity and inventiveness, she uses the colours, musicality and flavours of her native island to concoct dishes with subtle flavours and a modern twist.
In 1978, she bought her first restaurant in Paris, the Hibiscus, which had just two tables. It was a great success and other restaurants followed: la Plage des Palmiers (Saint Tropez), le Jardin des Gourmets (Le Gosier, Guadeloupe), la Villa Créole in the Opéra district of Paris, la Table de Babette (Poissy) and la Table de Babette in Paris (16th arrondissement), reputed to be the best Creole restaurant in Paris.
An ambassador of Caribbean culture that she fervently promotes, in 2015 she founded the “salon de la gastronomie des Outre-Mer” in Paris, which promotes French overseas cuisine all over the world and now on board.
