Caribbean Geography: Feasting on Waves

Filed under: Navigating — Richard Jordan @ 10:44 am

A video from Alton Brown's show Feasting on Waves showing how to make Bush Tea while foraging in St. Kitts

Alton Brown’s “Feasting on Waves” captures a fun, attractive slice of cruising – exploring the cuisines of Caribbean cultures. If you have not seen the show, Alton sails around on two 50-foot custom catamarans, “Chef de Mer” and “Boheme,” to taste the flavors of local eateries in the islands. Apparently the show was produced in 2008, but I first saw it a couple weeks ago. He starts in St. Kitts and travels north through the Leeward Islands enroute to the BVI’s. He seeks to find authentic, traditional dishes. I like how precise and colorful Alton Brown is whether in his old show “Good Eats” or here. I caught the second episode where Alton is in St. Martin. He surveys the open markets of Marigot, goes to the Island Mauby factory (which is not very clean seeming), taste tests a Lolo in Grand Cass, and finally forages on Saba. The show made me dream about the Caribbean.

"Dear Tom, I want to take this opportunity to thank you, and Jordan Yachts, for listing and selling our latest yacht. Our relationship has spanned over 20 years. We met you for the first time at the Newport Boat Show in the early 1990s. In 1994 you sold us a Stephens 47 cutter that we lived aboard until 1998. You personally installed a holding tank for us on the Stevens. You sold that boat in 1999 for 10k more than we paid for it. In 2003 we found a Bristol 41.1 on Yacht World located in the Sarasota, FL area and brought you in on the boat inspection, and eventual sale, because we trusted you and valued your thoughts and opinions. Because of your work, we negotiated an acceptable deal. You even helped us bring the boat from Sarasota to Ft. Lauderdale. We’ve enjoyed our time with the Bristol for 12 years and decided last December to put her on the market. We were in N Palm Beach at the time and you came up from Ft. Lauderdale to visit and to see what we had done to the boat over the years we had owned her. Last May, after our final cruise to the Bahamas, you came to our marina in SC to list and photograph our boat. The pictures and video you provided to Yacht World were critical in getting the buyers here from the Atlanta, GA area to view, and eventually purchase the boat. The coordination and support provided by Kathy at Jordan Yachts made the whole process seamless. Unfortunately, at age 76, my sailing days in “big” boats are over, but wanted to thank you and Jordan Yachts for providing expert and professional help in finding, and eventually selling for us, quality sailboats over the last 20 years." - PJ, S/V Dreamseeker 2
