I want to go to the Beach. A Warm Beach. The Caribbean

St Kitt’s, St Bart’s are Feasting on Waves with Alton Brown

I was watching Alton Brown’s Feasting on Waves the other night. It sure makes me wish I could go sail the Caribbean. The idea of the show is that they have two catamarans, and they are sailing from island to island to find true authentic Caribbean food. That is my kind of show. To start […]
