What we’ll do

You will be cooking with me in my own kitchen where you'll get to make fried plantains( BannannPeze), Haitian patties( paté) and some spicy coleslaw( pikliz) just like we make it back in Haiti. Now because fixing the filling for the patties is a bit time consuming, it will be made in advance. You'll just roll and stuff the dough. Throughout the activities you're welcome to ask questions about the…

What else you should know

Keep in mind that my kitchen is not a commercial kitchen. Everything will be done in a home cooking manner. With how small the kitchen is, only three people can be cooking together at once. Otherwise, participants have to take turns.

What I’ll provide

Equipment
Kitchen, pots and pans, bowls, cooking utensils, stove, tables, chairs, dining room table, sectional, Patio furniture, and all ingredients. I may provide some homemade drinks depending on time.

What to bring

It's a good idea to bring your own apron, food handling gloves and hairnet as I am providing everything you need for your cooking experience.
Please wear closed-toed and skid skidfree shoes for safety.
If you have food allergies and still want to experiment with the items in this experience, don't forget your allergy medications.
Bring your smile, enthusiasm, eagerness to learn something new, curiosity about Haitian culture, a half empty stomach, and an overall positive attitude.

Where you'll be

The cooking experience will take place in my Kitchen. But you get to decide when you get here if you want to be formal and have me set the dining room table to sit down and enjoy our cooking, or to sit on our living room sectional to watch TV as we eat, or to sit outback on our deck to overlook our neighborhood and Fort Riley,KS as we eat, listen to music, or just chat a little bit. You get to decide where you want to eat the food you make!
