Cooking in Paradise

Submitted by on March 24, 2011 – 12:12 amNo Comment

“Cooking In Paradise” is the enticing topic for a workshop and cookery class set for April 8 through 12, 2011, at the Jade Mountain Resort on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.

Guests will explore new flavors while learning traditional carib cooking methods. Included are a taste tour of Jade Mountain’s organic garden on the Emerald Estate, visit Soufriere’s local town market and enjoy a champagne cocktail water taxi ride. Guests will also have the opportunity to take part in a tropical fruit workshop and cookery class with Jade Mountain’s resident chef, Allen Susser (pictured, left, with Executive Chef Jonathan Dearden).

On the grounds of the resort is an old, tropical plantation, Anse Mamin, growing turmeric, cashews, tamarind, mango, avocado, oranges, tangerines, guavas, papaya, coconut, breadfruit, yams and sweet potatoes — all of which find their way into Jade Mountain’s menu.

Nick Troubetzkoy’s organic rain forest farm, the Emerald Estate, includes vanilla beans, bay leaf, nutmeg trees, cinnamon trees, and numerous varieties of mango, sour orange, and coconut trees. The Emerald farm grows leaves, greens, vegetables, and herbs for the restaurant.
