CALIENTE Y PICANTE COMPETITION: Saturday August 25 (6:00pm – 7:15pm)

Raquel Fox is a professional chef and motivational speaker. She grew up in The Bahamas and spent a great deal of time in the kitchen as a young girl. She was lucky to have the secrets of preparing conch, spiny lobsters, chowders, johnny cakes, mutton, oxtail, cassava and other traditional Bahamian specialties handed down to her while living and cooking with her grandmother. Although Raquel acquired a lifelong interest in global multicultural cuisines while attending international schools, her heart is in the Bahamian kitchen.
