For foodies, and, lovers of anything Caribbean, check out this new show on the food network, Feasting on Waves ..Alton Brown, is the host,and in the first show, he goes to St. kitts, and St. Barts.
One thing he had, was a lemonade, made with what they call "essence" He went to a store, and bought, vanilla, pear, and a couple of other flavors....I really want to find this essence, I only wish I was going there soon:)
Next episode, the show is in St Maarten, and I can't wait..check the website to see when it's on....well worth it, I think.
Trip, with her book & tea!

Trip...I have some friends going on the Dave Koz cruise Nov 2nd and they go to both islands..please "pm" me one week before they leave and remind me to ask them to find out about that drink for you so they can e-mail the contents
Trip I remember on our last cruise. We really do love St. Thomas, but decided we had been there several times, so we opted to take the water taxi over to St. John. We got off the ferry and right in front of us was a spice shop. I walked in and the aromas absolutely hit me the face. It was amazing! The flavors there boggle the mind and the palate. I will definitely have to check out that show and get myself back to the eastern carib sometime in the next year to get my spice fix. yummmm
I caught the first episode last week and will try to catch it tonight. Trip, I completely agree about the lemonade. After watching, I've been craving the lemonade with the mysterious essence!
It's good to know I'm not alone, lol!
