Last year on May 10, 2015, my family and I attended the Taste of Haiti event at Moca Plaza. It was an unforgettable experience and we vow not to ever miss it. on May 9, 2015 the City of North Miami will welcome the 3rd annual Taste of Haiti at Moca Plaza located at 770 NE 125 Street, North Miami FL 33161 from 2pm to 10pm. A day full of activities for the family: kids corner, food, drinks, music and entertainment and much more. Watch video below
“Since the earthquake that devastated Haiti in Jan 2010, the country has been fighting to rebuild itself from the ashes. The establishment of a new Government, a new leader at the head of our Ministry of Tourism along with the work of many of our Consulates and Ambassadors abroad, has brought nothing but excitement especially with the ongoing efforts to revive and uplift the image of our beloved Haiti.
The Haitian Culinary Alliance (HCA) founded by some talented Haitian Culinary Professionals, decided to do its part in the promotion of Haiti and its gastronomy. Gastronomy is an important ingredient in the promotion of tourism, and as Chefs, Culinary & Hospitality Professionals we view ourselves as ambassadors working at introducing the wonderful flavors that Haiti has to offer to the world.
When you talk about Haitian food in the United States, most people think Griot, Rice & Beans, and our most famous Soupe de Giromond. But there is more to our culinary background then just those items listed. Haiti has been influenced by a number of cultures such as French, Spanish, Lebanese, African, Indian and so forth. We are an island that offers an extraordinary variety in our cooking and we want to share our culture with the world.”
