Jade Mountain food gets top French honors

The culinary team at Jade Mountain, under the leadership of Chef de Cuisine Elijah Jules and guided by consulting chef Allen Susser, has been awarded a coveted Gault Millau rating, making it only one of four restaurants in the Eastern Caribbean to receive a 3-Toque rating. 

The French expert reviewers described Jade Mountain as “a truly wonderful discovery …  an exceptional venue – an opulent ecological sanctuary surrounded by nature – facing two volcanic spires” with its restaurant perched on the side of a mountain with “breathtaking views.”

The distinguished guide noted “Chef Elijah runs an excellent kitchen brigade with high gastronomic standards,” with the dishes presented in a “refined manner, perfectly cooked, and combined in a harmonious way that brings out the best of the ingredients,” with fruit and vegetables culled from the resort’s own organic farm.

Karolin Troubetzkoy, Executive Director of Jade Mountain and its adjoining sister resort Anse Chastanet, said “it is so gratifying to see our highly skilled and dedicated staff getting the international accolades they so richly deserve, and we look forward to advancing even more into the higher levels of gastronomic excellence Chef Elijah and his team have reached.”
