St Vincent’s first and only luxury resort, Buccament Bay Resort, has teamed up with Gerry Wilton, international chocolate entrepreneur and founder of the world’s only chocolate-themed hotel, located in England, to bring guests a one-of-a-kind ‘The Chocolate Experience at Buccament Bay Resort.’ Now introducing the concept of chocolate events into the world of travel, Buccament Bay Resort will be the first hotel to debut this delightful event with Wilton in the Caribbean.
Available twice as four-day workshops during the month of April - April 14-17 and April 18-21 - enjoy a series of tastings and classes that ensure a hands-on experience, enabling participants the chance to hand-make a selection of treats from truffles to chocolate cocktails, and have dibs on the chocolates crafted daily at the property by Gerry Wilton. The cherry on top will be a chocolate-themed Gala Dinner hosted on the final day of each four-day workshop.
‘The Chocolate Experience at Buccament Bay’ is $400 for each four-day program, and includes:
− Chocolate Tasting - An extensive look into the world of chocolate, including a seminar on the benefits of eating chocolate for good health
− Chocolate Truffle Making 101 - Learn the art of making truffles, and take 15-20 home to your friends and family (if they make it that far!)
− Chocolate Mold Making - A class dedicated to coloring chocolate, including chocolate hearts, lollipops, plus writing in chocolate
− Chocolate Portrait Painting - Portrait painting in chocolate (Pablo Picasso wishes his masterpieces tasted this good…)
