2021 came in like a Passo in rush hour traffic – fast and gone before you even knew what was happening. It may be hard to believe that another year has rolled around, but in these lightning fast 12 months, so much has changed! This year alone, the Showman team opened a whole restaurant, hosted their very first media cook-off event, welcomed back Boxie from his world tour, launched their Showman Chef Series, and supported a wide range of community groups.
For many years, the Showman team has quietly worked behind the scenes to create unforgettable experiences for persons wishing to enjoy private dinners or events. From expertly prepared gourmet meals to their impeccable butler service – Showman has created a stellar reputation while shying away from the spotlight. That all changed this past year, when the Showman team ramped up their community outreach, entertainment, and culinary efforts.
Showman eBistro Hosts The Ultimate Chef Cook-Off – During the Easter holiday weekend, some of the country’s top traditional and social media personalities came together for the Showman eBistro Ultimate Chef Cook-Off at the Gladstone Road Farmer’s Market. The nine teams (Hot Grease, The Vaccinators, The Islanders, Gimme More, Silver Swagga, Porkchop, Purple Pleasure, Da Juice & The Key Lime Underdogs) put their cooking prowess to the test while running their mouths in a fun and lighthearted battle for bragging rights (and prizes.)
After several hours of toiling in the Showman competition kitchens, team Hot Grease triumphantly walked away as the winners with an impressive menu that included a Coconut Curry Veggie Soup served in a Charged Coconut Bowl, followed by their take on a classic Griot that included a Plantain Cup with Spicy Picklez. Their winning entry was capped off with a Sweet Potato Grits, topped with a Snapper Fillet and complimented by a Coconut Rum Tomato Sauce.
The Showman eBistro Restaurant Opens! On May 31 at 11am the Showman Restaurant officially opened. The restaurant’s very first customers, Owen and Jimira, ordered the Lebanese falafels with West African jollof rice and kicked off the start of something special.
When Chef Romero Dorsette first developed the concept for the Showman eBistro Restaurant, he dreamt of elevating the look, feel, and flavors of takeout meals. “I want to change how takeout is perceived. I want to be able to offer customers fresh ingredients as well as robust, complex and unique flavors in a comfortable environment – AND, at an affordable price point” he noted.
However, as planning progressed, so did the vision. And, Chef Romero and his team expanded from a small takeout eatery, to an open-air restaurant, complete with a diverse and flavor packed menu, bar, and complimentary valet parking. The attention to quality at an affordable price point remained, but there was a greater focus on crafting an unforgettable and comprehensive dining experience.
Thanks to Chef Romero’s openness to new and fresh ideas, the Showman eBistro Restaurant has a menu that caters to vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians, and foodetarians, alike, and the decor incorporates whimsy, style, and the signature Showman touches.
One Night Only! Amazing food knows no limits. While professionally trained chefs can craft culinary masterpieces that weave unique flavours, textures and diverse ingredients into edible works of art, there are many who are gifted with a natural passion and love for food.
This past summer, the Showman Restaurant launched their Chef Series, and invited guest chefs and home cooks to showcase their love of amazing food and recipes on the Showman menu, for one night only.
Guest chefs ranged from media personalities, journalists, professors, singers, entertainers, and home chefs who just love to cook.
Boxie Is Back! Showman’s mascot took a tour around the world in 2021 and upon his return, he came bearing the gifts of his travels in the form of new meal kits. While Boxie may have had the time of his life getting into mischief in Thailand, partying in California and sauntering through just about every country in between, his Showman bredren thought it would only be fitting to have his return be Bahamian themed.
In October 2021, the Showman Meal Kit was officially relaunched.
While 2021 was a wild ride at Showman, they promise that 2022 will be filled with even more amazing culinary adventures….
