Developing Cuisine in a Developing Country Okay well.... I'm not Haitian so perhaps my name is misleading. My name is Laura and currently I am living in Haiti. I am only 16 years old but have developed a very nasty habit of making exceptional cuisine! I do not have all the luxaries of the American grocery store so all of my reciepes are quick and easy to make. The struggle to adapt here (espcially in the view of not having water, electricity, or even food for days) has started a chain reaction of creativity reaching out from making exceptional toothpick scluptures to ingenious culinary creations! Living here has been one of the best pushes in my life to grow towards what really inspires me: Jesus Christ, Art, and Cooking. Cooking here is quite the contrast to America. For example, it is done on a pile of charcoal, fruits and vegtables are the main diet, and the meat selection at the market is about as 'fresh' as meat comes (including the smells). Of course I do not use all of these methods. Thankfully God blessed me with a propane stove and the Carribean Market. (at least they package the meat before they give it to you.) Because of this fact, I do not have most of the 'fancy-shmacy' materials that most reciepes call for... which in my book voids themselves. My reciepes are sweet and simple... and did I say incredibly delicious. (I take after my mother far to much) :D Anyways, I hope you enjoy what I have to offer. Thank you and God Bless!
