Food is perhaps one of the most important things within a culture. As Regine Roumain, Executive Director of Haiti Cultural Exchange states, “It is an important and vital aspect of our cultural heritage and one I think should be preserved. Everything having to do with food from the preparation to the cultivation to the way we eat altogether is a cultural act. Food is culture”

It is a conscious and determined effort by the author to present a personal journey, yet to create something that is both accurate and lasting. This is telling Haiti’s story through the way Haitians prepare and consume what they produce.

This book provides a deeper understanding of the cuisine and the people of Haiti. For the general food lover, this book offers diversity and range to their cooking.

For everyone, Haiti Uncovered provides a great read, a history lesson and a masterfully done piece of art.
