If you haven't been watching the Food Network's Feasting on Waves with Alton Brown on Sunday nights, you have been missing a terrific opportunity to view the Eyelands of the Caribbee from the deck of a fabulous charter catamaran; two 50' chartered catamarans, in fact.
One cat was Chef de Mer, a fabulous platform for fun you can visit at www.viewyacht.com/chefdemer/.
There are 4 episodes, the first one exploring St. Kitt's and many other nearby eyelands. After visiting a vast luscious hydroponic garden on the island of Anguilla, last night we found AB sailing from Anguilla up through the Anegada Passage to end in, you guessed it, Anegada.
The Whispering Pines restaurant and watering hole served as a venue to a sumptuous Anegada eyeland-style barbeque featuring loads of lobster, baby back ribs, shrimp, mahi mahi and all the trimmings. If you haven't experienced a local barbeque in de eyelands, mon, you haven't seen barbeque!
Of course while the fire is heating up, you will be required to drink rum and then, maybe, some more rum!
The final episode will take place next Sunday night Sept. 28, 2008. Be sure to be there. Put on your pirate hat, eye patch, cutoffs and t-shirt, slather yourself with sunscreen and uncork your favorite brand of Caribbean rum to ease yourself into the picture.
Of course, you can experience all this yourself by visiting our favorite choices on board your own charter yacht at http://www.yachtchartersusvi.com/! Happy Feasting!
