Aside from the crystal clear blue waters of Grand Cayman and the super-luxe accommodations at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, one of the best parts about the Cayman Cookout is the access to world-famous chefs like Eric Ripert. When I was at this past year’s event, I sat down with the chef to talk about everything from what goes into putting on the event to his favorite airlines to fly. Needless to say, I wasn’t shocked to hear he’ll avoid eating at 35,000 feet unless he’s flying international in a premium cabin — and I have to say, I don’t blame him!
