To Serve

Collard Green & Fresh Cheese Salad

For the Vinaigrette

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a small sauté pan set over medium heat.
  • Once the oil shimmers, add the jalapeño and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes, until the garlic is fragrant and the jalapeño begins to soften.
  • Add the coconut flakes and continue cooking until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Combine the remaining olive oil, the coconut milk, lemon juice, egg yolks, sesame oil, mustard, and Worcestershire in a blender or small food processor and process until combined and an emulsion is formed, or whisk by hand.
  • Transfer to a bowl, add the sautéed jalapeño mixture and the parsley, and whisk to combine.
  • Set aside until ready to use

For the Salad

  • Slice the collards, radicchio and napa cabbage into ribbons and add to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add vinaigrette and toss until well combined
  • Remove the rind of the grapefruit and cut into supreme.
  • Add to the bowl with the dressed greens, along with the pickled pears and fresh cheese.
  • Gently toss to combine and transfer to two plates
Shrimp & Grits

Cook the Shrimp

  • In a large skillet, bring the gumbo sauce to a simmer.
  • Once hot, add the shrimp and cook for about 2 minutes – or until just warmed through.

For the Grits

  • In a saucepan, combine the grits with the heavy cream.
  • Turn the heat to low and stir, breaking up the grits.
  • Continue cooking, whisking consistently to get rid of any clumps, until the grits are beginning to bubble.

To Plate

  • Evenly divide the grits across two large plates or bowls.
  • Top with the shrimp and its sauce.
  • Serve immediately.
Benne Seed Pot de Creme with Roasted Pineapple and Benne Seed Praline

Oh my the whole meal was delicious, very easy to prepare as well.
Victoria R. - Coventry, CT
Got it for my daughter and her BF. They raved.
Paige T. - Washington, DC
The food was delivered on time and was appropriately packaged to maintain safety. More importantly, it was DELICIOUS! The pandemic cancelled our 10 year anniversary trip. However, since we couldn't go to Street Bird, bringing their Hot Honey Chicken and Cornbread Waffles to us was a treat!
Jessica W. - Williamsport, MD
Sent this to three different people. They loved it. FedEx actually delivered on the expected date

Food was excellent and safely packaged. Arrived on time. It was a gift and recipients were very pleased.
Andrea Z. - The Villages, FL
The chicken was good. Not great as I was expecting. My wife does not like dark meat and I never bothered to find out what was being sent and apparently you have no choice but to get it. So I liked it and she would not eat it. But I am sure this would be stunning if I were at the restaurant where it came from.
peter p. - Morrisville, VT
It was well packed and it was nice to be able to get food from a good restaurant beyond our neighborhood.

Packaged great and reheated beautiful. The money sauce is amazing. Bottle and sell it!
Kim N. - Hamden, CT
It was such a unique mix of flavors, packaged with clear instructions. When we could not travel during Covid, it let us nonetheless experience a famous chef’s cooking—a lovely meal with several dishes!
Beverly M. - Holland, OH
Everything about Streetbird’s fried chicken and waffles is excellent. They don’t bother with the tasteless chicken breast, the chicken is all dark meat, where the flavor is. Each piece of chicken is prepped, all fat is removed and the breading is thin and crisp and perfectly seasoned. The waffles are amazing, crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The honey is warm, slightly seasoned, perfect for the chicken. Succotash accompanies the main dish, a lovely blend of Lima beans, tomatoes, corn and greens. I will definitely get chicken from Streetbird again, Goldbelly is a fun and delicious way to bring restaurants from across the country into your kitchen and bring a celebration to our locked-down tables.
