Throw on an island shirt (if you dare) and get ready to embark on a special Caribbean cruise that’s a little bit “Love Boat”, with a twinge of Margaritaville, as Cruise Director, Bruce Campbell takes you on a 'spirited' tour of his favorite ports of call. 

Bruce, the ‘Food and Beverage Guy’ with 25+ years in the restaurant business, is the perfect host for our evening of merriment – he’s an avid seafarer and has personally taken a boatload of cruises.  

As you set sail toward our first port of call, Bruce will entertain you with tales of his journeys and insight to the region’s various styles of rums and their luscious cocktails as he teaches delicious “island-y” concoctions like Cranberry Mojitos, Pineapple & Ginger Infusion and Pain Killers.

He’ll teach essential culinary techniques like knife skills, the proper way to whisk (yes, it’s a thing), and more, as he shows you how to make an interesting Caramelized Pineapple Slaw with a spicy kick, Caribbean Rice & Peas (a staple with any Caribbean meal), Green Beans with Citrus and a flavorful homemade Sherry-Mustard Vinaigrette. 

For the entrée, Bruce will share his tips to making the perfect Jerk Chicken Skewers. To die for. You’ll end your Caribbean feast with a special pineapple dessert made with dark rum. Yeah, Mon. 

As you know, Caribbean food is a fusion of many different cuisines including Africa, Spanish, French, Dutch, and Indian. The aromas and tastes wafting from tonight’s dishes will definitely transport straight to the islands.

This class is guaranteed to be a boatload of fun, so…come aboard…we’re expecting you! (Insert “The Love Boat” theme song, and visualize walking up the gangplank to Captain Stubings’ welcoming smile… work with me here, will ya?)
