I am Victoria, a French woman, living the dream in the culinary capital of the Caribbean; the island of St. Maarten/St. Martin.
My vocation is marketing but my avocation (my passion) is the epicurean way of life; the finest of food, drink, and all things epicurean. This website enables me to share this passion with like-minded people all over the world.
Back in 2009, I started to blog on Facebook page : SXM Epicure Club.
At first, it was to share my passion for good food and of course, my passion for our island Saint Martin/Sint Maarten. My posts were mainly about food for years and the FB Community slowly grow with the years.
But in 2017, we got hit very hard by the terrible hurricane IRMA and almost all the businesses on the islands were destroyed, restaurants included. It was a tough time for all of us and my Facebook became more a page where people outside the island could get some news about the evolution of the island and its reconstruction.
We recover slowly but surely.
Today many businesses on the island want to help me to continue my mission which is to promote the island in a positive way, and most of them become now my “sponsors” that you will find while browsing this website.
Still, I don’t want this website to become a regular Travel guide or tourism guide, like you can already find everywhere on the internet, no.
Here, we are focus on what we love : Good food, shopping and everything that can bring joy to our lives, as local people, or to your vacations, if you are a visitor…
My goal is to make you discover or to try some new places on the island you’ve never been.
Whether you are a long time visitor of the island, a local, or an epicurean seeking new adventure, you are sure to have a pleasant experience with both my site and the businesses found within. You have my word on this.
Enjoy the visit and don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook to get the latest infos!
