Fried chicken is many people’s favorite food, including mine. This is a recipe for Haitian fried chicken, which is different than American fried chicken because of the different types of seasoning and the cooking methods we use.

Griot (pronounced “gree-oh”) is one of the famous dishes in the Haitian culture. It is served on special occasions or parties. Griot is fried pork shoulder, served with fried plantains and sometimes salad with some pikliz, a spicy coleslaw. Griot doesn’t particularly have to be pork; it could be any meat of your choice, since not everyone eats pork.

Simple Scones, Two Ways (Plus Toppings!)

On weekend mornings, all I want is something warm, rich, and easy to make. Both of these scone recipes are just that. British-style scones are less sweet and less rich, so that they can be spread with generous amounts of jam and cream later on. Their American counterparts are sweet, buttery, and endlessly customizable. When adding mix-ins, think chocolate chips, raspberries, chopped nuts, dried fruit, etc.

To truly define what makes a good cup of hot chocolate, I think the biggest two factors are price point and quality. This is why, to find the best hot chocolate in Cambridge, I tried three differently priced hot chocolates to see which one had the best combination of flavor and value.

Bringing lunch to school every day allows me to save money, feel better about what I’m eating, and have something to shamefully snack on when CM hunger hits. Often, I just throw leftovers into a container and call it a day. But when I have slightly more time (or fewer leftovers), this “formula” allows for quick lunches that are easy to make and pack.

Since the dawn of civilization, people have baked bread. Nowadays, much of the bread we eat is leavened using active dry yeast or instant yeast, but for most of human history, making bread rise required a longer process. Today, we call bread made with this ancient process sourdough.

When you go to a Haitian party, you are most likely going to see two different types of rice. One option is plain brown rice, and the other the one, which I am going to talk about, is ‘“diri djon djon,” or mushroom rice. Diri djon djon is rice that you make with black dried mushrooms. It is mostly cooked for special occasions and on Sundays. Without further ado, here’s the recipe for diri djon djon. Good luck!
