Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama…
Ooo I wanna take you down to the Kelly’s.
For a PIG Project potluck feast featuring food from Bermuda, Bahamas, and Barbados. And as it turns out, the feast was a hit and the food was great. We ate (in order of pictures below) Bahamian Macaroni & Cheese, Barbadian Jerk Fake-Chicken and Potato Roties, Bermudian Potato and Pea-pod Salad with Mint, Bermudian Curried Carrot Soup with Coconut, Fried Avocado with Shrimp Salad, Hyper Sweet –Bahamanian Sweet Potato Casserole, Hack Job Barbadian Pineapple Pie, 6X Crazy Chocolate Cake, Island Carrot Cake, and homemade flags to garnish our Banana Orange Daiquiris.
The food was wonderful and I think we all did a great job picking island recipes bursting with flavor unlike some of those picked when we made food for Antigua and Barbuda. The soup and salad were made by Kate and were as wonderful as she is. I made the jerk fake-chicken and the pineapple pie. The ficken was good and as for the pie, “not so much*.” Kate’s mom, Donna, made the fried avocado dish which was delicious, the mac n’ cheese was good as well and Amy’s cake was great. The sweet-potato casserole made by Chris and Cherie was sweeter than most candies (which I liked) and the carrot cake was excellent. The virgin Banana Orange Daiquiris were delicious.
As always the best part of the meal was the company.
* A quote said that night by Tomasso, a family friend of the Kellys from Italy who is a fashion designer and lay critic who joined us for dinner, to describe Kate’s outfit… “pink mumu, not so much!”
