Blanc manger and braised pork shank

These are dishes from what is apparently called “DOM-TOM”: Départment et Territoire D’Outre Mer, or in other words, Departments and Territories overseas from France. This includes areas such as French Guiana, French Polynesia, and Bora Bora.

Pork shank, creole rice, gumbo salad and “dog sauce”

I learned that gumbo salad is a cold salad featuring okra. I have also learned that the french word for “okra” is “ocra”, which is a close call away from “orca”. To be clear: this is not a killer whale salad.
