Haiti In My Heart
On Sunday, June 3rd Chef Gregory hosted a very special dinner with his mother Yanick, honoring the Haitian dishes of his childhood. A recent trip to Haiti inspired him to look deeper into his family roots and the cuisine that he grew up with.
The menu consisted of Haitian classics, such as Griyo, twice cooked pork, Lanbi An Sòs Kreyol, conch simmered with tomatoes and Sòs Poul, chicken gravy with peppers, shallots and thyme.
In addition to wonderful food, family and nostalgia, proceeds from the dinner benefited the J.A. Cleremont Foundation in Jacmel, Haiti, a foundation for homeless children.
