At an exclusive tasting of their joint menu for the new Temenos Resort and Residences, opening in Anguilla in late 2008, chef David Bouley and nutritionist Oz Garcia introduced their unique take on spa cuisine. Working with the antioxidant and antiaging properties of Japanese and Mediterranean dishes, they infuse their plates with natural ingredients that have additional health benefits. Lobster, for example, is accompanied by a pomegranate sauce to take advantage of the fruit’s antioxidants, which are known to prevent heart disease. Organic lamb roasted in lavender, shown to have a positive effect on brain function, is served with a dessert of goat’s milk–yogurt sorbet rich in immune-system-bolstering probiotic bacteria. Bouley also spoke about the healing properties of fish oil used in his cooking. 800-567-1845; temenosanguilla.com
