Ahh...chocolate! Here at Boucan on the Rabot Estate, a working cocoa plantation, you'll find that heavenly flavor infused into just about every dish: cacao gazpacho or citrus salad with white chocolate dressing for starters. The main course might be red snapper roasted in cacao butter, rib-eye steak "matured and infused" with cacao nibs, cacao- and herb-encrusted pork medallions, or handmade cocoa ravioli with a tomato and fresh herb sauce. You get the picture. Dessert,
of course, is the grand chocolate finale: cacao crème brûlée, meringue floating in a sea of chocolate crème anglaise, dark chocolate mouse...even cacao sorbet. Yum.
