Imagine visiting St. Kitts and brewing up a bush tea created from fragrant grasses foraged from the roadside. Or, how about visiting a lolo stand on St. Martin and sipping on a local drink called, mauby, or even helping a local family prepare a broiled fish feast with local ingredients and traditions. Well, now your imagination is only a remote click away. The Food Networks' kitchen geek- Alton Brown- and his crew have taken the 3rd season of his popular show, "Feasting on Asphalt" offshore. The four-part series follows Brown's journey on two 50' catamarans as he explores the unique flavors of the Caribbean in "Feasting on Waves." He starts his journey in St. Kitts and travels through the Leeward Islands to the BVI. In the spirit of "Feasting on Apshalt", he seeks out the most authentic, traditional foods of the regions and meets the people who create them. Getting away from the typical "Cruise cuisine", travel with Brown as he ventures to roadside stands, street vendors, farmers' markets, spice houses and the homes of local cooks who make regional specialities. This week features the episode, Won Love. You can find it on the Food Network channel on October 1 at 8pm/7c; October 4 at 6 pm/5c; and October 5 at 2pm/1 c.
