Once again, it’s another case of why the NCAA passing the Name, Image and Likeness bill was a great idea. Back in December, West Virginia forward Pauly Paulicap created a cooking account on Instagram, showcasing his skills off the court and in the kitchen.
“He’s supposed to rival Taz [Sherman] as the best cook on the team,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said. “See that’s something people don’t know.”
So after hearing all of the hype, I decided to try it out for myself. Paulicap has recently started a small business making home-cooked meals: $8 for a small plate, $14 for a medium and $17 for a large. You can also buy dessert for $3 and a drink for $1. Paulicap posts his menus on the Instagram story and has a schedule set throughout the week.
I reached out to Paulicap on Thursday, ordering a medium plate and a dessert. Thursday’s meal included jerk chicken wings and jerk shrimp as the entree. The sides are mac and cheese, steamed cabbage, and rice and peas. The dessert for the night was a piece of carrot cake. Paulicap himself delivered the food with a charge of $3.
This was my first time trying Caribbean food and this was a great first impression for it. The chicken wings and shrimp were seasoned perfectly. It had a little kick to it, but it wasn’t overwhelming. The rice was the same way. I am not the biggest fan of mac and cheese, but Paulicap did it the correct way: homemade. It was a great taste and texture. Then, the carrot cake was a great, final addition to the meal.
Paulicap charged me $20 for the entire meal. And honestly, it was worth it when you consider everything. It was a homemade meal, it was my first experience trying out Caribbean food, and a student-athlete was supported. Paulicap went out to the grocery store after practice, cooked up a meal for multiple people, and then drove out and delivered the food. He earned every single penny. I would definitely get the food again!
If you want to support Pauly and try out his food, go check out his second account on Instagram, ‘@chef.pauly‘.
