Palace Partners with Pastry Chef Antonio Bachour

Posted on 08/24/2017

Palace Resorts is further upgrading its culinary offerings, announcing a new partnership with pastry chef Antonio Bachour.

Bachour has been recognized as one of the top pastry chefs in the U.S. and has been referred to as a “confection master” by restaurant guide Zagat.

What will this new partnership mean for guests at Palace resorts? A delectable selection of sweet treats.

Palace Resorts will now feature an exclusive menu of decadent desserts and pastries that have been curated by Bachour at all 10 of the company’s properties in Jamaica and Mexico.

“Palace Resorts’ prides itself in the ability to continuously search for strategic alliances that elevate our brand to the next level,” said Jabib Chapur, vice president of food and beverage for Palace Resorts.

“Bachour is a pastry master who embodies passion, elegance, innovation and excellence–the same characteristics that set Palace Resorts apart. By partnering with a passionate pastry chef such as Antonio Bachour, we guarantee guests will experience an unparalleled flavorful, dessert experience,” Chapur added.

Palace is fully dedicated to raising the bar with this new gastronomic offering and has invested in additional training for its onsite executive pastry chefs at each resort—each of whom had the chance to undergo a personal training session with Bachour.

“I’m elated to be a part of the Palace Resorts team and bring unique, new twists to their dessert and pastry offerings. I was extremely impressed with the brand, its impeccable service and vast culinary dining options. I am honored to work alongside their extremely creative culinary teams and take their dessert to the next level,” said Bachour.

Bachour, who grew up in Puerto Rico, has had a love affair with sweets, spending his formative years observing his mother making homemade desserts in the evenings. His father owned a bakery, and Bachour honed his skills over the years by embarking on a global culinary journey that took him to some of the world’s best hotel kitchens.

In 2018, Bachour will open his own 5,000 square foot bakery and restaurant in Miami: The Antonio Bachour Bakery + Restaurant + Academy.

Palace Resorts is no stranger to high-end culinary offerings and this new partnership adds to an already robust roster of high-end dining.

The brand announced a partnership with Certified Angus Beef earlier this year, and Palace Resorts chefs have access to ongoing culinary training at the company’s cooking school and pastry shop where they can further hone their craft.

In addition to top-notch cuisine, guests at Palace Resorts will experience superlative accommodations and service, something the brand has staked its name on.

“An unparalleled level of service and comfort is standard throughout every property under the Palace Resorts umbrella,” said Palace Resorts vice president of sales and marketing Kathy Halpern.

“We take the all-inclusive concept to the next level with well-appointed guestrooms featuring in-room whirlpools. We also feature CHI-branded products and amenities, including flat irons and blow dryers, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and soaps,” Halpern added.

Luxury dining, top-shelf alcohol and 24-hour room service are all included, as is high-end entertainment and deluxe accommodation offerings.
