When we arrived we were offered infused water. I found this to not be like any other water we have been offered. Katie infused the water with Lavender and Lemongrass. It has such a light flavor, but refreshing.

Our meal started with a butternut squash bisque with roasted pine nuts. Second, we had mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes stuffed in lightly crusted chicken served with quinoa, garlic, and roasted cauliflower.

Our dessert was like a key lime chiffon with dehydrated lime. She did not stop there! She shared with us that she entered the charter culinary contest and asked our opinion. Katie dehydrated pineapple and made it into a dust! Just the tiny taste was flavorful and had no added sugar.

For lunch, Jen served a three-course lunch. The starter was a white gazpacho topped with mint and shaved almonds. For the entrée, we enjoyed a salad topped with Lobster tossed in butter. (She had me at Lobster!) For dessert, we enjoyed a chocolate torte drizzled in chocolate syrup. Sadly, I was so excited about her dessert, I didn’t snap a picture. It basically jumped into my mouth! I feel I can speak for everyone who joined us that day for lunch in saying they did a great job!

What’s so special about this husband and wife crew is their chemistry and their charm. They’re not only highly skilled mariners but truly engaging people. A sailing catamaran vacation aboard Starfish is, indeed, a feast for the belly and the soul!
