I have never been to Green Turtle Cay, although I would love to go. I got as close as Harbour Island though and found you usually have to trade off fresh food---other than fish and tropical fruit---for the remote isolation in the beautiful Caribbean. I’m sure this will not be the case with this particular event. Couldn’t be proposed at a better time. Get your credit card ready. A limited number of all-access Devour! The Beach passes are available now. If you are really in hurry the path is Chicago to Ft. Lauderdale and then there is a package deal from Florida to Green Turtle and probably the best beach you have ever seen. Single event tickets are available if necessary but you can find more info on tickets, events and transportation at www.greenturtleclub.com

After a severe test of Paczki-resistance, Diva Days in St. Joe are upon us and Chef Jean Joho devours the beach at Green Turtle Cay in a few weeks.

Already Checked the Airfares: From the pricey-but-tempting hotline news that Chicago Chef Jean Joho will join other famous North American chefs---who cares who they are (they’re from Cleveland, Dallas, Ottawa and Halifax) ---on Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas for Devour! The Beach beginning March 26.

“You do not have to be a foodie to enjoy Devour The Beach!, you just have to love good food and wine” says Chef Joho. “The fish and the fruit in the Bahamas is some of the most flavorful in the world. I bring a very personalized type of French cuisine, with Alsatian touches and cannot wait to collaborate with the other chefs.”

Plans for the three-day event “Devour! The Beach,” include two -themed gala dinners from a classic six-course French dinner to the best in pan-American menus, with cookouts, wine-tasting and other culinary demonstrations.

French Divas Are Coming: Next week at this time Diva Days in St. Joe Michigan will already be underway and Artful Dining: Monet’s Garden wine dinner may even be booked out by then. But, that’s next week, so in the meantime get your reservations for the special event at Bistro on the Boulevard. It’s part of a whole weekend of decadent downtown St. Joe shopping, art and wine-tasting.
