Sandals Resorts Brings Emmy Award winning show to Saint Lucia
Sandals Resorts International's Emmy Award winning team of Chef Walter Staib and Producer Paul Bauer are once more collaborating on the multiaward winning series A Taste of History; the venue this time being the beautiful island of Saint Lucia.
Boasting three of Sandals luxury-included Resorts, Saint Lucia provides the perfect backdrop for the TV series, which is sponsored by Sandals and based on the City Tavern Cookbook: Recipes from the Birthplace of American Cuisine. The book was authored by Chef Staib, who is also Sandals' Culinary Ambassador, along with Paul Bauer, Sandals Resorts' Group Manager - Food and Beverage Standards, and himself a recent Emmy Award winner.
In this episode of A Taste of History, now in its 8th season, the team chose the Morne Coubaril Estate, a region steeped in history on the south-western coast of the picturesque town of Soufriere, Saint Lucia. The episode is dedicated to highlighting the French influence in the island during Napoleonic times when Josephine and Napoleon were a dynamic duo shaping world history.
Viewers will be treated to Chef Staib exploring exotic and significant recipes of historic proportions: venison, pheasant, ostrich, and eel; fry fish, celery, calves' feet, and oysters; sauté wild mushrooms and kohlrabi, braise beets and sunchokes … and going back to the classics, with stuffed cabbage, mashed potatoes, turkey stew with egg noodles and beef brisket. Baked bread, tarts and Martha Washington's Chocolate Mousse cake, follow along as the adventures in history continue.
Chef Staib also owns and operates a restaurant in Philadelphia, which was built in 1773, maintaining its rich history.
A Taste of History airs throughout the United States on PBS and RLTV.
