What happens in the Bahamas stays in the Bahamas…unless…

Bloggers in Club Med

…unless you are a blogger!

Left to right: Sarah Foster; Deb of Smitten Kitchen; Diane of White on Rice Couple; Elise of Simply Recipes; David Lebovitz; Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard; Matt Armendariz of Matt Bites and moi!

I’m doing a bit of writing for Club Med and wanted to host some of my close blogger friends for their Food and Wine Festival. Needless to say, we’ve all forgotten about deadlines, cold weather and laundry duties.


Look at these gorgeous gals! Deb and Stephanie Izard.



Draping seductively: Matt and Elise



Diane, a professional portrait photographer as well as one of my bestest friends, took portraits of everyone! Isn’t this cute? Elise and David.



And here are my glamour shots that Diane took. I felt like a movie star!




Club Med Columbus Isle Posts

Matt just posted with some photos; Diane has more photos of the group and come see David’s post about the Blogger’s Bocce in the Bahamas!

    How are you holding up? It looks like such rough going down there. And such uninteresting company. Good luck!

    (see also sarcasm, jealousy)

    Everyone is looking tan and happy! I think you need to come up with a bahama blogger cocktail for the rest of us! Do you think you could put your heads together and concoct something to commemorate the trip?

  12. Ulla — 3/3/09 @ 4:35 pm

    It is so cute to see you all together! I am such a fan of all of you!

  13. I am so freaking jealous I can’t stand it. You look beautiful. Have a blogging great time.

  14. Luna Pier Cook — 3/3/09 @ 5:51 pm

    You look so natural there, like you belong. Why not just move the whole famn damily to Club Med? I’m sure the boys would find something to do. ;-)

  15. RecipeGirl — 3/3/09 @ 6:27 pm

  16. Gorgeous photos! Especially of you with that purple scarf (or is it shawl? whatever…)

  17. I just commented over at WORC that you look so gorgeous Jaden! You all look great and relaxed and joyous! Looks like you are all having a blast. Keep the pics coming we folks on the snowy East coast are living vicariously through you all.

    I’m so envious! All the powerhouses of culinary blogging ;)

  19. Janet — 3/3/09 @ 11:43 pm

    Oh, I am so, so, jealous!! Perfect company, perfect food, and lots to drink- what could be better?! Oh, and you look model-quality- fabulous by the way!! If I could only have skin like yours…

    Looks like a fabulous trip!

  22. Lizzie — 3/4/09 @ 9:01 am

    That second glamor pic of you is SO pretty. That is really cool you got to hang out with all of those neat people (and they’re lucky they got to hang out with you!)

  23. Jescel — 3/4/09 @ 9:48 am

    now, why can’t we all be there?

  24. Joanna — 3/4/09 @ 11:43 am

    Okay, when that first picture showed up in my feed reader, I swooned a little. Some of my favorite bloggers all together in one place AND you got to hang out with Stephanie from Top Chef?!?!? Color me jealous! How awesome!

  25. what an all star cast :) The weather looks absolutely killer from up here in NY surrounded by snow pretending to melt.

    P.S. great call getting Matt Wright to take some photos for you, I love his work.

  26. Diana — 3/4/09 @ 5:29 pm

    Jaden you look gorgeous! It looks like you guys are having so much fun.

  27. joey — 3/4/09 @ 9:20 pm

    What fabulous photos and what a grand time you all had — as if there would be any doubt at all that you would have a grand time with a bunch of fantastic bloggers together! :)

  28. Hélène — 3/4/09 @ 11:11 pm

    Beautiful pictures. Can’t wait to read more about this trip.

  29. Loved your first portrait. Goddess!

  30. Carolyn Jung — 3/5/09 @ 9:56 pm

    Good-lucking bunch! And nice glam shots on the beach, Steamy. I predict the cover of Sports Illustrated next!

  31. Tonya @ What's On My Plate — 3/7/09 @ 4:46 pm
