Daily Photo – Snapchat Spectacles

Down on Grand Cayman Island, I was using these Snapchat Spectacles all the time. Everyone under 25 seemed to know exactly what they were and wanted to play with them. If you don't know, there is a little camera up there that records 10 seconds of video then sends it out to all your snapchat followers. It's kind of a fun thing! Anyway, this gal was over by the pool having a Moscow Mule and she asked to try them on!

Anthony Prepares to go Around the World

Grand Cayman Highlights

Here’s another visit of the highlight video from Grand Cayman. You’ll recognize Bourdain drinking vodka in the beginning! 🙂

Here's a favorite candid of Bourdain I got during the big “Tasting Around the World” event during the Cayman Cookout. This is right before it began. See all those umbrellas around the outside? Each “booth” was from a different country and there were about 10 represented here… Anthony would go around and have food or drinks at each one… It was a really fun event!

Anthony Bourdain Made Us All Dinner on the Beach!

Phantom 4 Pro Testing

I’m currently in the middle of a little road trip where I’m trying the other P4 Pro – the one with the built in screen. I tested it a few times at home already and it seems pretty good. I only had one OS crash, which is better than a P4 crash! Check out the Phantom 4 Pro review here on the site for more.

Every day at the Cayman Cookout featured different cooking events. This was one of my favorites (and Anthony said it was his favorite too) when the chefs got together to cookout their favorite foods on the beach. How fun! Man, I ate a lot… it was ridiculous! I thought it was quite amazing to watch Anthony up here cooking and helping with his team to make sure everyone got to eat their incredible creations. They were all simple but great! This one in particular, if I recall, was an SE Asian pork belly wrapped in a small pancake. Yummers!

The Moon Sets over Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman Wrap-Up

Here’s a video-recap with me and Gino about some of the highlights of our time at the Cayman Cookout on Grand Cayman Island. We had some surprise guest stars too including the only chef to be sued by the President of the United States José Andrés.

This was the view on my first morning from the room I was sharing with Gino atop the Ritz-Carlton. Somehow, we got the penthouse. We'd get into the elevator with all these people and then they would look at US clicking on the Penthouse button and they would shake their head ruefully. Well, mostly at Gino. Anyway, we were greeted with this incredible moon set on our first morning here. And the day just got better from there! 🙂

New Highlight Video From Grand Cayman Island!

I spent a crazy five days taking photos and hanging out with some of the world’s top chefs including Anthony Bourdain, Éric Ripert, José Andrés, and Emeril Legasse in the Grand Cayman Islands for the famous Cayman Cookout! Here’s a highlight video!

You can also see my personal challenge to lose a little weight in my nonstop up-and-down struggles. How did I fare? Well, you’ll see…

Facebook LIVE with Anthony Bourdain!

A few days ago we did a Facebook LIVE show while at The Ritz-Carlton’s Cayman Cookout with one of my biggest creative inspirations – Anthony Bourdain. We talked a whole lot of things including creativity and teaching. Check it out!


Daily Photo – Facebook LIVE with Anthony Bourdain!

And here's the man! Anthony Bourdain! I took this right after our conversation on Facebook Live. He's an inspirational dude. He said one thing that is still on his bucket list is to get high with Keith Richards, listen to music, and eat food deep into the night.
