Griots are a very tasty Haitian treat. ;) It is usually presented as the main course with riz ak pwa kole (riz with bean sauce) or riz djon-djon (riz with black mushrooms (Rice With Black Mushrooms - Diri Ak Djon-Djon)) & banan pese (twice fried plantains). Most Haitians eat their griots with "burning" hot Ti-Malice sauce. The main meal of the day in Haiti and in Haitian communities all over the world - is lunch. Any midday, a walk in the streets of any Haitian neighborhoods, is almost sure to include the mouth-watering smell of griot (pronounced gree-yo).It is made of tasty chunks of fried pork (Glazed Pork Pieces) served with sauce (soos) Ti-Malice (a little malice). The secret to this dish lies in its presentaton. ;) Griot can also be served with Pickliz - a salad that is both very spicy and good.This dish involves braising chunks of pork, sauteing them until crisp, and then cooking with some braising liquid as the pork slowly caramelizes. Ti Maice, a Haitian condiment named for a trickster in voodoo mythology. a piquant, sour sauce, serves as a foil to the sweeter pork.We, consisting of about 30-40 young people, would go to the beach every Sunday & spend the day, one of the staples was a very large (paella size) pot of griot with sauce T-iMalice and Pickliz We would get to the beach at about 9:30 and would leave about 5:00pm, so as to get back to the city & get ready to go to the movies or dancing - what a life! :) I loved it and remember it fondly.

It is beautifully written.:)
