    Great Haitian Food

    OMG this book was God sent! I'm Haitian American and I've missed my mothers cooking since I've been living in Buffalo,NY. Once I saw this book I knew I had to order it! My Italian husband is so happy with the meals I've prepared! I feel like a true Haitian now! Making the most delicious meals I remember from my childhood.

    Thank You to the author

    I was just saying how I wish I had a book to share with my American friends who love haitian food. The instructions are to the T. I will definitely be giving this book to the new brides at the Haitian church where my husband pastors in Stockbridge, Ga. Especially the young Haitian-Americans women who may need the extra help.<BR/>L. Thomas

    This is a must-have...

    I use this book quite often. Not only does the book have recipes related to all parts of Haiti, but it also provides history.

    Real Haitian Food

    I love this book and so does my entire family! I am a first generation American and I have been looking long and hard for a Haitian cook book in English, when I got this book, I went straight to my mother and aunts to check the accuracy of the recipes. They were all very happy to see the recipes followed their traditions, as well as some recipes they'd forgotten! Just a note, these recipes are more so from the stand point of people from the Northern part of the country(which worked great for me!)
