Jade Mountain Chocolate Festival

Chocolate Festival

St. Lucia's Jade Mountain offers a variety of special events throughout the year, focusing on romance, health and wellness and the culinary arts. Perhaps the most decadent is the annual Jade Mountain Chocolate Festival, from December 9-12, 2011. Guests will be greeted with a "Chocolat-tini" party upon arrival, and the weekend's other events include a tour of Nick Troubetzkoy's Emerald Estate Cacao Plantation, a dinner comprised of all-chocolate courses, with a focus on additional seasonal and sustainable ingredients, a chocolate breakfast in bed and an optional one-hour cocoa-based body treatment.

From the Jade Mountain website:

Our annual chocolate festival is one of a kind. It will only bring you closer to understand and experience the alchemy of chocolate. It is a delicious, interactive and exotic introduction to the world's favorite aphrodisiac - chocolate. Cacao has a history in St Lucia that dates back to the 1700's. Our Cacao trees, over 1000 strong, are established in both Anse Mamin Plantation and in Emerald Estate.
