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 Jordan Yachts - I write with great appreciation for all that Tom Harney has done for us. My wife and I have just purchased our first cruising boat and we plan to sail for a couple of years in the Caribbean with our three small children. Tom has been so much more than a broker and his experience, dedication and commitment to Jen and I have gone way beyond our expectations. In many ways, he is like an “adopted” father who is looking out for me his “adopted” son as we moved into uncharted waters. There have been countless examples of his "above and beyond" execution from our first phone call to ultimately closing on the boat. For example, the official closing of the paperwork could have been the closure of the transaction but to Tom, he was much more interested in seeing that we properly outfitted the boat and provided many recommendations from his 30+ years in the marine industry of who to use and what equipment is needed. In addition, he personally got involved in managing the outfit of the boat well beyond the official closing. Words can't express our appreciation and I would welcome any inquires from potential clients as to the positive experience with Tom Harney - On behalf of my family, a sincere thank you --- www.loveatfirstsail.com" - Marc Konesco s/v adagio
