The culinary trip around the world stops in French Guiana.

French Guiana is part of France, it´s a member of the EU and their citizens pay with Euro. So why don´t I count this to France? Because the South American country has its own cuisine, because only 12% Europeans live there and because it adapted a lot from Brazil.

That´s the reason you´ll see a lot of Brazilian food, as well as Creole and seafood on the menu in French Guiana.
As I researched for typical food I often stumbled across a mango sorbet. The heat makes sorbet a popular dessert.
Reason enough to try it and let me tell you it´s tasty even on not so hot days. Mango sorbet is quickly prepared and very refreshing.

Personally I love the yellow colour the sorbet gets from the mango.
