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!)

Simple Scones, Two Ways (Plus Toppings!)

March 29, 2019

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.

Cambridge’s Best Hot Chocolate

March 2, 2019

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.

What could I possibly say about "Happy Death Day 2U" that isn’t already told by the name alone? If you go into the theater thinking you’ll enjoy yourself, I’m doubtless you will. However, if you’re the type to hear that title and immediately form some harsh opinions, then it’s probable you’ll hate every minute of the runtime. Not guaranteed, though.

Future, colloquially known as the “Codeine King,” “Future Hendrix,” and, most recently, “The WIZRD,” is an artist defined by one thing, and one thing only: hits. Future has undoubtedly shaped the soundscape of the 2010s with his warbly and mumbled delivery, his dark and distorted melodies, and his love of the purple drink.

Every year, CRLS’ many departments showcase student music, dance, theater, and literary works; however, it’s not often that all are combined into one cohesive production. This spring, a group of multi-talented students will work with co-directors Junior Cius ’10 and drama teacher Brett Cramp to do just that.
