This week we will discuss the revolution, and look at the tragedies, triumphs and strength of character of the Haitian people. We will also cook some Haitian recipes, and look at some of their best in writing, fashion and music. Thanks to Maya, we have a menu
- White rice,
- Sos Pwa
- Mayi Moulen
- Poule en Sauce (chicken in sauce)
- Pen Patat (sweet potato pudding)
We'll also look at the fashion and style inspired by Haitian heritage.
I found this wonderful song by Mika Benjamin "Ayiti se" which is a tribute to this great country. A translation of the lyrics can be found here. Enjoy the song.
