Dolly Boyce in her open kitchen at the new Dolly’s Jerk Joint in Sarnia Canada
35-year-old Dolly Boyce was born in Guyana and grew up in St. Lucia.
And at the new Dolly’s Jerk Joint, the smell of Jamaican patties fresh out of the oven and Dolly Boyce’s friendly smile is what greets you at the door.
It’s been less than a month since Boyce went into business, arriving early each day to start preparing fresh curries, fresh pastry and her own brew of Caribbean spices in a small open kitchen.
She’s loving it and the steady stream of customers picking up their orders.
“I love the food, I love to cook and I love to meet people ”
Boyce attended culinary school in St. Lucia and became a chef, putting in long hours at various hotels. She had been at the St. Lucia Sandals resort for nine years when she met a Canadian restaurant owner who invited her to Parry Sound.
