Bright and garrulous as parrots, the cruise ship passengers flock the tiny streets of Philipsburg. The succinctly-named Front Street is packed tightly with shops; just a step away, the beachfront shimmers. I am pleased to have seen this, the duty-free shopping mecca of the Antilles, but it has not captured even my easy heart.

about this blog

Occasional vignettes from the life of a charter chef who loves simply messing about on boats.

"I still think that one of the pleasantest of all emotions is to know that I, I with my brains and my hands, have nourished my beloved few, have concocted a stew or a story, a rarity or a plain dish, to sustain them truly against the hungers of the world."
MFK Fisher
