Born and raised in Haiti, I grew up in the hills of Port-au-Prince where I was often off hiking with my father and close friends. Our hiking adventures often included food experiences during which we discovered, or sometimes rediscovered, our local gastronomy. Whether it be at home or in the neighborhood, I have always been surrounded by gardens. We often grew vegetables in our yard at home, which, today, has become a real orchard which produce are featured on my blog. I’ve thus experienced our local gastronomy in many ways. I chose to create a blog where I will share some of my culinary memories, hoping to keep Haiti’s cuisine alive. My goal? Share a digital gastronomic directory of the Haitian cuisine that goes beyond simple recipes in order to compile anecdotes that give life to the aromas, smells and tastes of my country.
