TNN’s Tribute to Bermuda’s Cup Match Culinary Queen Dolly Pitcher

Spare a thought for the Bermuda legend, Sister Dolly Pitcher who recently passed into eternity.

Dolly kept Bermuda’s culinary and indeed cultural traditions alive. She was Ms. Cup Match in the minds and hearts of so many Bermudians and always represented the best of who we are.

For many of locals born during that late 1950’s to mid 1960’s period, when it came to Cup Match, besides the game on the field, what was taking place off the field was just as much a part of the sublime pageantry and fabric of the classic.

Many would remember the highly varnished and valued cedar canes festooned with one’s favourite team colour’s.

However, it was the food that was very much remembered and when it came to Cup Match during that era it was the Reid stand and that of Sister Dolly Pitcher that ruled the roost, Hash shark, Mussel pies and Conch stew was Dolly’s signature dishes.

Perhaps a moment of silence reserved just for her this Cup Match would be appropriate in order to properly honour Dolly and that irrepressible, welcoming smile of Bright red lipstick of hers.

Condolences to Dolly’s family and her St. David’s community.

There will never be another like her in our lifetimes.
