While most of us in Miami have grown up on a steady stream of Cuban fare, the delights and taste infusions of Haitian food are harder to come by. That’s a shame, because a good Haitian meal has many of the staples we love–beans and rice, fried plantains, goat, pork–plus bold hits of African and French influences.
If you’re curious and looking to expand your palate, The Haitian Culinary Alliance will be offering up food, drinks, music, and more at the 2nd annual Taste of Haiti event this Saturday.
“We felt the need for an event like this event,” says Alain Lemaire, chef and co-organizer of ToH. “There’s nothing in the U.S. that is geared toward Haitian food and we thought it was something we could do as far as uplifting our culture.” via | Miami New Times
