Driftwood Resturant Owners Team Up With Hey Sandy! PR to to Prepare a Traditional Bahamian Sunday Dinner
"I'm devastated by the destruction of my homeland. In any home on a Sunday in The Bahamas, you can get a plate of food from family, friends and even strangers. Sunday dinners are big in The Bahamas. I wanted the hurricane victims here to be able to enjoy an authentic Bahamian meal. Many of them are living in hotels and don't have a place to prepare a typical Bahamian dish for their families," Sandy Collier said.
Collier and her friend Jerusha Terry, who is also from The Bahamas and a school teacher in Palm Beach County, along with Chef Christina Dixion-Wells, the owner of Mini Meals on Wheels, and Mr. Brandon, The Conch Man, also a Bahamian who owns Funky Fritters here in Palm Beach County, were busy in the kitchen cooking Bahamian Peas and Rice, Bahamian Conch & Rice, Macaroni & Cheese Cole Slaw, Potato Salad, Crab Salad, Conch Salad, Conch Fritters, Baked Chicken, Grouper Fingers, Steamed Conch, Steamed Chicken, Baked Chicken, BBQ Chicken and Curry Chicken. Chef Everett learned how to make conch salad and Bahamian macaroni and cheese.
"It was so generous and kind of Chef Jimmy and his wife Illia to close down their restaurant for the day and open it to all of us. His staff was phenomenal, waiting on tables, making cocktails and making everyone feel at home," Collier said.
