During our holiday [US: vacation] in La Réunion, we discovered a typical tradition: the famous Creole picnic. It's part of the Réunion lifestyle. And indeed, we saw outdoor areas to picnic everywhere on the island. On the menu, there were no sandwiches, but there were some delicious Creole specialities! Our hosts cooked the different dishes in a big cooking pot on a wood fire. We tasted sausage rougails with some yellow rice. It was quite spicy and absolutely fantastic!

I'll be right with you...
