All of our meals are prepared with the emphasis on fresh. We take advantage of the ocean's bounty, the favorable spice trade, and check in with the 'coconut telegraph' to find the freshest ingredients for your dining pleasure. Your individual custom menu might include some of the following Caribbean culinary delights aboard Alizé. We guarantee you won't go hungry.
Sunday’s start out with eggs benedict smothered with homemade hollandaise sauce accompanied with seasonal fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice or a refreshing mimosa.
Monday’s marvel is grilled jumbo prawns with pineapple salsa, and a spinach, pine nut and avocado salad topped by an orange/sherry vinaigrette.
Tuesday's treats tease the taste buds with homemade breakfast pastries in the morning, and the day ends with a traditional barbecue, grilling up either the fresh-caught fish of the day, or a fine cut of imported meat. And of course, a delightful bottle of red or white wine would be just the right thing to complete the evening's experience.
Wednesday’s unveil a spectacular lunchtime lobster salad, imminently satisfying and keeping with the theme, may encourage an afternoon's snorkel.
Thursday’s offer happy hour and appetizers after an island excursion complete with your choice of tropical drinks or Red Stripe beer, and an array of canapés, crudités, cheeses and dips. As Caribbean music wafts through the balmy air, the sun, seas and dinner is served al fresco on the bridge deck.
Friday's feature has an Asian flair, with tempura fondue and hibachi skewers of a variety of fish, meats and vegetables.
Saturday's sensation is waking up to the aroma of baking as it permeates the boat. It's up to you to decide: is it bread, pastries, or cookies? As you walk into the galley, you might see Chef Maribel stirring her mouth watering fudge. The day's labors could possibly become the evening's garlic bread, or tomorrow's French toast.
