Interactive & Hands On Cooking Class
You'll learn about our Traditions and why cooking is such an important trait in the Haitian household
In a beautiful Haitian-style home located in Little Haiti, surrounded by plants and fresh air, our Culinary Experience starts off with a brief introduction to the essential flavors and ingredients of Haitian cuisine.
We will also do Kremas & Limeade Juice tasting so you can try our own style of drinking.
Then, we will prepare a full 3-course menu with sides: Fresh Vegetable Salad & Beets Salad, Main Dish (Chicken or Griot-Fried Pork), Rice, Pikliz, Plantain, and Fresh Squeezed Drinks. We try to always use traditional utensils, like Pais De Fe & Pilon. Many of the dishes you will learn and cook come from my own family’s cookbook, with the intention of preserve and share the authentic traditional Haitian food! The preparation of Rice, Beets Salad, Meat Dishes, & Drinks is from scratch, so you can make them at home anytime you want a real Haitian Cuisine!
By the end of the class, we sit down, family-style, to share the food and the experience itself, all the while enjoying a Papaya Juice, Limeade, beer or wine … or a bit of each! This all happens in an ambiance full of joy, music and laughter, recreating the sense of fellowship and warmth of cooking at home with friends.
