In commemoration of Saint Lucia’s 42nd Independence Anniversary and on the 18th Anniversary of the employment of Ms. Cornelia Judy Felix with Fond Doux Eco Resort, the Directors Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne have created a new chocolate bar “Judy’s Milk Chocolate” in recognition of her long and outstanding service.
Fond Doux Eco Resort first started as a historic agricultural plantation, which diversified in 1999 as a Heritage Tourism site offering daytime tours and lunches to cruise ship passengers and tour operators.
Ms. Cornelia Judy Felix who hails from the craft community of Choiseul commenced her employment with the company in 2003 as a Tour Guide. In 2006 when the Heritage site diversified into eco-tourism with the addition of three cottages, she was then transferred to the Food and Beverage department where she developed a passion for cooking and baking.
In October 2017, Ms. Felix received hands on training from a professional chocolatier in Trinidad & Tobago on the processing of chocolate; from the bean to the bar prior to the grand opening of the resorts Chocolate shop “Plas Cacao” which now produces 60% and 70% chocolate bars.
Today, Ms. Felix remains the resorts senior chocolatier and has trained other staff members on chocolate production.
Due to shifting taste buds, Ms. Felix has since expanded production on the chocolate flavors to include almonds, mixed fruits, cashew nuts, cocoa nibs, cinnamon, bay leaf and milk chocolate just to name a few. These chocolate bars are currently available at the resorts boutique and sister company ’Eroline Foods in Soufriere.
