Food, Food, and More Food
A sample menu might start with fresh sashimi, chilled beet soup, or fresh salad greens on homemade pickled beets topped with grated carrots and sliced almonds with an orange balsamic vinaigrette served with savory herb popovers, fresh grilled fish and pasta with a garlic anchovy caper sauce, and topped off with fresh lime soufflé for dessert.
Before you arrive at Clearwater Paradise, we ask you about your food likes, dislikes, and allergies, so we can create menus that will make your stay with us outstanding! We also ask about any celebrations before, during or after your stay with us. Ginger loves any excuse to bring out the crystal, china and silver for a special dinner!
And, of course, with all that activity you will be doing, you can’t skip breakfast! You will have anything from the standard pancakes or waffles to cheese stuffed egg crepes, George’s famous breakfast bowl chocked full of veggies, peanut butter banana stuffed French toast, or maybe even migas served with a side of refried beans and home fries. All served with juice and a starter of fruit. There is always plenty of fresh coffee on hand on the coffee bar along with a cookie jar full of homemade ginger snaps, chocolate chip, or other fresh-baked cookies.
So, leave the diet at home, and plan on having some good food on our breezy dining deck overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean! We promise, you won’t go home complaining that there just wasn’t anything good to eat on vacation or that you went home hungry.
Here are just a few of the wonderful comments about our food that some of our guests have written on Trip Advisor: [or can we just link to Trip Advisor here?>
“Finally, but perhaps most notably, Ginger and George serve some seriously haute cuisine. I somehow ended up gaining 5 pounds on a 8 day vacation. It was worth it though, as Ginger makes some of the best desserts I’ve ever had. I’m still dreaming about the homemade ice cream and souffles. Ginger gave me instructions on how to make them, so I’ll have to give it a try myself soon. Ginger and George have a huge garden, so much of the produce is freshly picked that day. I’m a vegetarian, but my boyfriend claimed he had some of the best fish of his life”
“the food (vegetables from their own garden!) is excellent”
“Both George and Ginger are consummate hosts and extraordinary cooks. Inspired by the fresh seafood delivered to their dock by local fishermen, and bolstered by the fresh vegetables and fruits from their beautiful, well-tended garden, the food we were served was positively amazing, drawing comparisons with exquisite restaurants we’ve visited, and surpassing many of them. With an adventurous palate, a reverence for freshness, and an eye for presentation, mealtimes at Clearwater were worth the trip all by themselves.”
“Who gets to go to a far off Island like Guanaja and be served a fresh, homemade on the spot Caesar salad with anchovies and all?”
“The food is the best we.ve experienced at a beach resort with fresh fish still kicking.”
“Ginger and George made us gourmet meals and accomodated [sic] all my special dietary requests.”
“George and Ginger love to cook, and food was a big part of our week. We were there for Valentines day and had a wonderful, romantic dinner on the deck topped off by Chocolate Mousse! Every meal was an adventure and had endless variety.”
