What’s Kanelle ?
Kanelle originally called “Cannelle‘’ in French means cinnamon.
In the West Indies, Cinnamon is an essential kitchen staple that is used to flavour sweet and savory dishes. Ginger, nutmeg, and clove also tops the essential spice list.
Back in the Caribbean the cinnamon we purchase are large and doesn’t have a uniform shape, unlike the ones available here which take a perfectly round shape. The flavour however is the same. Local factories source Cinnamon fresh from the tree.
Guadeloupe and Martinique are big producers of raw chocolate, vanilla beans, and rum, therefore all these products are available in abundance at the local markets.
Despite Kanelle’s kitchen being all the way here in Australia, we still create our desserts using top quality raw chocolate, vanilla, and rum, just to add that fine rich touch.
Usually it is very easy to find because of the number of local market all around the island
