Feasting on Waves

Alton Brown's latest TV show, Feasting on Waves, premiered last Sunday on the Food Network. Those of us who were lucky enough to be watching it were rewarded with an unexpected stop in St. Barth due to bad weather conditions. The show is a four-part series in which Alton and his crew sail around 15 different Caribbean islands on a 50-foot catamaran. The goal is to seek out quality local cuisine. Fortunately for Alton, the captain of the catamaran, Randy West, has lived in St. Barth for over 25 years and was able to take him to several popular local venues. The first stop was Le Select for the famous Cheeseburger in Paradise and a local ti punch, made of cane syrup, rum and a slice of lime. Next on the agenda was a visit to Chez Ginette in Anse des Cayes. Ginette is known on the island for making and selling bottles of rum punch made from dozens of different fruits and flowers found on the island. The expression on Alton Brown's face when he smelled the passionfruit rum punch testifies to its strength! The final destination was The Wishing Well, locally known as Chez Rolande, in Flamands. Rolande's grandmother had a restaurant in Guadeloupe for 25 years, and Rolande learned how to cook authentic Creole food at her side. Today, her daughter helps her create the same dishes. Alton, and Randy, were lucky enough to have her prepare a fricassee of langouste, the Caribbean spiny lobster. Alton's comment upon tasting it? "She's a witch!"


Comments

Hi was wondering if aynone has the measurments for the ti punch, what kind of rum and what brand of cane syrup would you use.
Thanks in advance,
Tom
