One of the most fascinating and ambiguous facts about the Haitian Creole Cuisine is indeed the amount of time put in the preparation. Haitian dishes are concocted with care and include various spices and herbs that serve as basis into flavoring all the dishes appreciated at homes, Haitian restaurants, and hotels. So, the foods are moderately spicy and are slowly cooked after being seasoned and well marinated. Whether they are common dishes mingled with rural plates, they are all rooted in the culinary traditions of the French, Spanish, Taino-Indians, and Africans.
Haitian Creole Dishes include a variety of staples such as rice and beans topped with chicken, meat, or fish stews alongside with boiled plantains or other root vegetables. Apart from these are the Haitian salads cooked or raw. Fried foods are also Haiti’s popular delights, which consist of deep fried meat, poultry, fish, and some root vegetables. Other kinds of foods are the authentic Haitian porridge made with corn meal or grated plantain, and the delicious and traditional sweet potato bread (pain patate).
There are also the famous and natural Haitian beverages lemonade, grapefruit, orange, watermelon, grenadine, custard apple (cachiman) and soursop (corossol). Desserts are plentiful and extensively prepared with coconuts. One of the most popular drinks recalls the famous and appetizing cream of liquor "Cremas".
