Culinary Travel: A Book-Inspired Food Experience at Cap Maison, St. Lucia

July 12, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Cap Maison, St. LuciaAttention foodies: you can experience the best of the Caribbean's spice-laden cuisine with a new culinary experience at Cap Maison, the stylish boutique resort perched on an oceanfront bluff on St. Lucia. Inspired by the release of Ann Vanderhoof's book, "The Spice Necklace; My Adventures in Caribbean Cooking, Eating, and Island Life," this package deal was designed to give guests the opportunity to create a "foodoir" memoir of their own. Shack up at Cap Maison-- delighting in the setting high above a secluded beach-- and get treated to meals at The Cliff at Cap restaurant, where Executive Chef Craig Jones cooks up creative, contemporary cuisine focusing on the island spices and fresh local ingredients that Vanderhoof discovers during her journey by sailboat through the Eastern Caribbean. Along with all your meals, the package also includes a personalized shopping tour of the Castries Central Market (for West Indian produce and spices galore!), airport transfers, and a complimentary copy of the book. Available through December 18, 2010, "The Spice Necklace" Experience is priced at $2400 per couple for accommodation for three nights in a Villa Suite with pool.

PS. Don't miss the St. Lucian aphrodisiac cocktail the author refers to as "island Viagra"!
