Jade Mountain Launches Series of Food Events for 2012 St Lucia Holidays
Jade Mountain is giving visitors the chance to get involved in a series of complimentary food events during St Lucia holidays as it launches a schedule of food festivals throughout 2012 including the Mango Madness event and the Chocolate Festival.
Jade Mountain is one of the most highly acclaimed, award-winning luxury resorts in St Lucia and it provides the perfect setting for a romantic escape or tropical weddings and honeymoons.
This year, the resort has launched a series of food festivals that will allow guests to experience exquisite Caribbean cuisine during St Lucia holidays.
Nestled into tropical hillside above the 600-acre beach resort of Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain offers breathtaking views of the majestic Pitons and the resort’s unique architecture embraces its natural surroundings.
Jade Mountain is also renowned for its culinary offerings and while enjoying relaxing holidays in St Lucia this year, guests can also sample the local cuisine at several complimentary food festivals that have been organised by the resort.
From 30th March to 2nd April, 2012, holidaymakers will be able to learn about traditional Caribbean cooking methods and taste the Caribbean flavours at the “Cooking in Paradise” event. Participants will take a tour of the resort’s organic garden on the Emerald Estate as well as visiting the local town market in Soufriere where they will take part in a tropical fruit workshop and a cooking class with Jade Mountain’s chef Allen Susser. Guests will also be able to attend a cocktail party, Champagne brunch, lunches and a gourmet dinner.
