Saint Lucia knows its food and drink, so from soil to fork, our travelling twosome take in the culinary delights of the island including visits to the Rabot Estate - home of Hotel Chocolat, the delicious street food of the famous Friday night Jump Up in Gros Islet, and St Lucia Distillers. for a food and drink special. Did we mention the rum?
