“You can find all the flavours in one dish here,” says Tomislav Cukman, head chef at East Winds Inn, on dining in Saint Lucia.
In new videos by the much-lauded Saint Lucian resort, the Croatian master chef explains how Caribbean cooking is simply the best bits of everything.
Recipe Video: Red Snapper, Christophene and Spinach
“Caribbean cuisine is generally a fusion cuisine. The Caribbean islands are a melting pot of all cultures. They have their influences from America, from Europe, from Asia.”
Chef Cukman, who trained with world-class culinary school Le Cordon Bleu London, takes this scattering of ingredients and gently blends and concentrates with classic French flair and technique. East Winds Inn is known for its dedicated approach to food, and as such is a member of the Chaine Des Rotisseurs, the Paris-based International Association of Gastronomy. Local produce is a must: fish and lobster come straight from the fisherman to your plate, and farmers supply fresh organic ingredients.
Recipe: Chicken Breast, Coconut and Cinnamon Sauce, Sweet Mashed Potato and Beetroot.
The genius is in the detail at this understated and secluded resort. East Winds Inn celebrates the Saint Lucia jazz scene, pitched perfectly to complement the meal. The island’s first Steinway piano can be found here and regular live performances enhance the palate.
Lest we forget the East Winds Inn Vin Safe wine cellars, stocked for the sommelier’s selection.
With exceptional food, outstanding service, and a blissful location on one of Saint Lucia’s quietest beaches, it is little wonder that East Winds was voted TripAdvisor’s ‘Number One All-Inclusive Resort in the Caribbean’ for the fifth time, and ‘Number Three All-Inclusive Resort in the World’ last year. The resort has also won TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice awards year-on-year since 2008.
