Usually it’s either a memorable view or an amazingly good meal – rarely do the two go together. But on St. Lucia, nestled high between the lush twin volcanic Piton peaks, is the Ladera Resort whose restaurant, Dasheene, is laid out in such a way that most every table is treated to a jaw-dropping vista of the azure Caribbean.
Chef Orlando Satchell sources many ingredients from local plantations, farms and fishermen. You might find on the menu sweet potato and coconut soup, Caribbean lamb salad, roast conch, sugar cane shrimp and a daily catch such as red snapper or triggerfish, prepared with West Indian flare.
When was the last time you perused a menu offering christophene, callaloo and shadow bennie?
