April 20th: The Grenada Chocolate Fest 2015

Ladies and Gentlemen of the ChocolateMission get ready for a ChocolateMission takeover!! Yes for the next week we are going to be counting down to The Grenada Chocolate Fest taking place in May at the True Blue Bay, a boutique resort located on the beautiful south coast of Grenada.

The Grenada Chocolate Fest will take place at the True Bay Blue resort from 8th to 17th May, 2015 and is going include a multitude of events that we will tell you more about next week. Should you like what you see in our preview this week and want to get involved with the event visit Caribtours (020 7751 0660: www.caribtours.co.uk) for pricing and availability.

So how did the Grenada Chocolate Festival first come about? Well Magdalena Fielden, founder of the festival told us about the inspiration behind the event:

'Grenada has a unique chocolate story to tell which I knew could be turned into an interesting and delicious experience. The more I thought about it the more I realised that we had never really worked collectively to promote Grenada’s cocoa history, traditions and the fantastic award winning chocolate that is produced right here on the island.

It was in 2013 that we started to talk about running a chocolate week at True Blue Bay. We had noticed that there was a growing interest in chocolate and workshops to learn how to make chocolate. I wanted to do more than just show people how to make chocolates and so the Grenada Chocolate Fest was born.'

The Fest is promising a whole lot of fun which we will be telling you more about this week giving our a day-by-day roll call of events. Today we thought we would leave you with this preview video to get you in the mood. So crank up those speakers and get in the Caribbean spirit - it's going to be a fun week here @ChocMission.
