#113 The Inn at Perry Cabin

St. Michaels, Maryland

Locations:
The town of St. Michaels, the Inn at Perry Cabin, and aboard a skipjack.

Guest Chef:
Chef Mark Salter

Summary:
The Inn at Perry Cabin is consistently rated one of the top luxury inns in the world, and Chef Mark Salter promises the same quality in dining. John enjoys a pampered weekend, ventures into the charming town of St. Michaels, and sails aboard a skipjack.

Producer's Notes:
One word: luxury. Too bad the shoot didn't last longer. The recipes proved to be a test of endurance, as taping didn't begin in the inn's kitchen until the restaurant business was winding down. We stayed up till 2 a.m., and poor John and Mark had trouble remembering what they were cooking! Sailing aboard the skipjack Rebecca was a nice jaunt out in the Bay, but production crew members had to constantly scramble around the deck to stay out of the camera's lens. At one point I was laying flat on the deck out of view, when I was splashed with water and oyster muck from a dredge that was pulled onboard; I had to lay still, wet and sticky, until the cameras stopped rolling.
