February is the month of love, flowers, and most importantly, chocolate! To celebrate everyone’s favorite indulgence, The Somerset participated in Turks & Caicos’ 8th Annual Chocolate Lover’s Competition. The island’s best chefs competed with sweet and savory chocolate-inspired dishes. The Somerset Executive Chef Brad Townsend and Pavilion Pastry Chef Mercedes Fernandez prepared Lobster Stuffed Agnolotti, with a Champagne, white chocolate cream sauce. Their culinary talent and creativity delighted many guests, and The Somerset team took home the gold title for the Savory Division.
