In an innovative partnership with Chef Collin Brown, The Stewarts Automotive group left little doubt in the minds of many Tuesday last about the functionality of its new Mini Country Man. At their Orchard Street Office, against a backdrop of onlookers, supportive staff and media personnel, world renowned Chef Collin Brown hosted a creative culinary demonstration, proving that a three-course meal can be prepared on the throttling engine of this compact vehicle.
Brown, who is currently Island Outpost's head chef, treated the crowd to a variety of delightful mini-meals which included steamed salmon with dill, sweet and sour prawns accompanied with sides of mashed yams. All meals were prepared on the engine of the Mini Country Man.
A very excited Brown described the inspiration for this partnership as paying homage to his frugal teenage years in Trelawny, Jamaica, where he would gut and prepare fish to be steamed on his car engine in an attempt to score points with female prospects. Thursday Life saw many diverse reactions to the proceedings, ranging from wonder to anticipation. After about 20 minutes of preparing meals on the heated bonnet of the vehicle, the ingenius chef was ready to serve his offerings.
Stewarts Auto Sales Limited Director, Jacqueline Lechler, described Chef Collin Brown's creations as "excellent and innovative". Many were eager to devour Brown's unusually prepared creations, confirming that excellent cuisine does not always require a stove.
