Warm Return to Our Winter Home BY DEL FOXTON, Vice Chargée de Presse AS THE WEATHER turns cold in many parts of the world, some Chaîne members return to the turquoise waters and white sand surrounding their winter homes on Grand Bahama Island. At the Pelican Bay Hotel's Canal House restaurant on November 24, 2015, Bailli Frederic Ossude extended a warm welcome to returning confrères, who were then treated to an out- standing gastronomic experience courtesy of Executive Chef Emmanuel Smith. Outdoors, over- looking the stunning Bell Channel Bay and amid the lively con- versation of friends reconnecting, staff circulated with deli- cious canapés and champagne. Following the reception, the party moved indoors to the elegant dining room, where the six-course meal was thoroughly enjoyed and the cold climes soon forgotten. Chef Smith and his team emerged from the kitchen to receive the group's hearty applause and kudos. Thanks were also extended to Vice Chancelier-Argentier Honoraire Barry Taylor and Vice Chargée de Missions Christine Rich for organizing such a fun welcome-home event.
