NEW: The Treasures of the Caribbean, a new concept of ice cream parlor to discover without delay


Located at a strategic point in Orient Bay, at the entrance to the village square, the Treasures of the Caribbean are an invitation to travel for a unique and unforgettable experience. This high-level ice cream concept designed by Jérôme Ferrer is both delicious, fun and inventive, with the perfect dose of quirky.

An atypical chef and non-conformist entrepreneur, Jérôme Ferrer is one of the most emblematic French chefs in Canada: chef Relais et Châteaux of the eponymous restaurant in Montreal, voted best restaurant in Canada in 2018, master chef of France, Jérôme has many titles, but especially ideas. The latest, an atypical space that combines gastronomy and discoveries, this time in Saint-Martin: “It’s a dream that we’ve been cherishing for several years. Post-Covid has somewhat precipitated this desire to return to our origins, France, while remaining close to our host land, Canada. Saint-Martin seemed obvious because we find this logic of life there, a bit like in Quebec, with an English-speaking and French-speaking environment” confides Jérôme Ferrer. Behind the Treasures of the Caribbean, there are three in business: Patrice de Felice and Ludovic Delonca met Jérôme Ferrer during their training at the Vatel hotel school. From there was born a solid friendship sealed by the opening of a first restaurant in Saint-Cyprien in the Pyrénées-Orientales. In 2001, together, they decided to change direction and live the Canadian adventure. They opened the Europea restaurant in 2002. Offering avant-garde, scripted and creative cuisine, the restaurant has become in a few years the essential restaurant in Montreal where the elite from around the world rub shoulders. Jérôme Ferrer doesn't stop there, he is also the author of a dozen culinary books, a gastronomic columnist and TV show host for more than 17 years. By launching the concept “Les Trésors des Caraibes”, Jérôme Ferrer wanted to offer a gourmet boutique that showcases high-level ice creams: “The idea is to provide an immersive experience for our customers”. The chef voted best entrepreneur of the year by Gault&Millau in 2016 takes with him his sidekick, Roland Del Monte, Meilleur Ouvrier de France considered a bit of a magician pastry chef and above all an outstanding ice cream maker. Having become the pastry chef of Europea, Roland Del Monte is therefore at the origin of the ice creams now offered in the Treasures of the Caribbean tasting area. The 24 flavors that renew the genre are above all frozen pastries. Imagined as a dessert, Roland Del Monte transforms them into ice creams with unparalleled technicality and an inimitable taste based on fresh fruit pulp. The process is both science and inventiveness. The ice creams are offered in the classic way, in a small pot, a waffle cone or in half a fresh coconut. For those with a sweet tooth, enjoy Jérôme Ferrer's signature dish on the terrace, such as Caribbean lobster cappucino with fresh truffle or lobster guédille. Simpler, but just as tasty, are the mini lobster or filet mignon sandwiches, all accompanied by a fresh Bubble Tea. After the tasting, visitors will be able to enjoy the products offered in the shop: lobster oil, culinary innovation and pride of the chef, or the tasty seawater caramels with pina colada, licorice or fruity flavors. Another room coveted by customers, the well-being alcove where the sweet scents of scented candles, bath salts and soaps with original shapes inspired by the world of the glacier rise. A little extra that will make all the difference, residents of Saint-Martin will be privileged customers, a special card will entitle them to -20% on all purchases, 365 days a year. . _Vx
