A Flair for Food - Health-Conscious Cooking Is This Chef's Cup Of Tea

A third-generation chef takes advantage of her alternative training to carry out her talents on a midsize sailing yacht. Strong breezes met us on our way out of the Yacht Club Marina in Antigua. Although dark clouds portside indicated rain in nearby Montserrat, our afternoon of comfortable sailing onboard the 2004, 82ft Oyster Darling was free of bad weather.

We skimmed across the waves, with a cool spray on our faces, headed towards a little deserted bay said to be a favorite hideaway for crew members. Once there, several guests dove off the boat and swam, while others took advantage of the snorkeling gear and explored the crystal clear waters. On the return to port, we relaxed on deck with freshly blended pina coladas... (more)
