Oh how sweet it is! Just in time for A Taste of St. Croix, the newly renovated Hotel Caravelle is offering an experience designed to tickle you culinary chops. “Caribbean Spice & Everything Nice” includes two tickets to the annual celebration of food and wine, a copy of the St. Croix Food & Wine Experience Cookbook and a bottle of Cruzan Rum. Priced at $995, the five-night stay (April 13–18) is timed to coincide with the 15th annual festival showcasing the best of St. Croix’s culinary talent. This year’s event, featuring more than 50 exhibitors including local restaurants, farms, rums, wines and more, will be held April 14.
“St. Croix has an active culinary community and this annual event showcases our local talent,” said Sid Kalmans, Hotel Caravelle. “Since its inception in 2001, A Taste of St. Croix has grown exponentially.
