French Caribbean Food
French Caribbean Food is a new and exciting catering service offering recipes of delicacies, appetizers and finger food inspired from exotic destinations, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Reunion Island, which are part of the French Caribbean Islands, also known as the West Indies.
Their main specialties are :

- Achard or ‘Pickled vegetables’ ~ This fresh mixed of crunchy vegetable from the Mauritius Island and Reunion Island is generally served as a side or can garnish a sandwich.

Fromager d’Affinois by La Fromagerie
Nestled in the foothills of the Alps in the southeast of France, our Belley dairy is surrounded by ancient forest famous for its many waterfalls and lakes, while our Pélussin dairy is hidden in the heart of the Massif du Pilat regional park in the Rhône valley. Our range of cheeses has now been exclusively made for years in these two dairies, only 100km away from the foodie vibes of Lyon, the worldwide capital of gastronomy and home to many chefs.
The secret to our recipe? Rich cow’s milk that we collect from our local farmers whose mountain breeds, Montbeliardes and Holstein, graze on dense pasture. The skilled hand of our cheese maker then transforms the milk into creamy wheels of Fromager d’Affinois – Australia’s favourite specialty cheese.
We’re often asked how to pronounce our name (Fro-maj-ay Daff-een-wa) but we must admit, we love being known as ‘Daff’!
