2012 Jamaica Epicurean Escape Festival

The Food

Mouthwatering, delicious, exquisite, sumptuous, fabulous, delectable...were just some of the words used to describe the food that was offered at the Jamaica Epicurean Escape in 2012.  The chefs really put on a fantastic show, not only with the wonderful taste but with their overall presentation.  It was truly Epicurean.    

In 2013 many of these will return, plus others and they are planning to thrill our patrons even more with their special creations.
