Earlier I had said that I would post some food-related pictures of my very recent travels to Anguilla and St. Martin. I think some good and entertainment can come of this without it turning into a vacation slideshow.
For those who are interested...
The Cuisinart Resort and Spa in Anguilla as seen from our balcony
One of the better dishes at Santorini, Cuisinart's fine dining restaurant.
Sauteed Jamaican prawns, caramelized hearts of palm (part of a very nice six-course tasting menu)
Local crayfish over pasta at a restaurant literally right on the beach (Shoal Bay West for those who know the island)
It's hard to say how this next picture is at all food related, other than the fact that the property was located on the same beach as the restaurant that served the pasta dish seen above.
Covecastles Resort (unlike anything I've ever seen before)
Supposedly this place has won a lot of architectural awards. I really want to know who was judging.
Grilled calamari on a rosemary skewer, stuffed piquillo peppers at Michel Rostang in the Mallihouana Resort. Michel Rostang is a relatively famous Michelin 2-star chef.
If you ever find yourself in French St. Martin, I recommend this delicatessan, Le Bounty. Great cheeses, charcuterie, breads, and other French goodies.
Notice the sister carrying the requesite baugette
Finally, I include this picture because I really recommend this hotel in French St. Martin. It lies in Grand Case, the purported gourmet capital of the Caribbean. Undoubtedly, the area has a great number of good restaurants and this hotel is the nicest, and certainly most charming, in the area.
