When I received and read this book, I was jumping for joy. I feel this book is a great representation of haitian cuisine. I am also Haitian and feel that Mona Menager did a great job! She was not selfish and revealed recipes that are usually discussed among family members. I was very surprised and wanted to personally thank her for stepping up to the plate.This books gives clear and detailed explanations on how to prepare different dishes. I have other haitian cookbooks but this book is top of the line. I give this book a perfect 10!Mona, if you are reading this review. I want to personally thank you for taking the time and energy to creating a work of art. I hope you will continue your research in Haitian cuisine and perhaps creating other cookbooks entitled "Fine Haitian Cuisine Part II and III." I will be the first to buy them.
I was born in Haiti, but rasied in the US. I married a true born and raised Haitian from Port au Prince. On that note, its truly a big task trying to delight my husband's taste buds.After trying two other haitian book (Mountain Maid & Taste of Haiti), I find this book to be the best so far. The first dish that I'd served to my husband was "Poisson Gwo Sel",it tasted better then his mother's!:) To add more icing to the cake, he'd asked for seconds!!!!Pros: Clear/clean instructions, color pictures, a different outlook of preparing/cooking and unfamiliar/different recipesCons: Book is heavy, the size and pages tear out easlySuggests: Divide the book in two or smaller print,soft cover instead of hard, pictures of individual dish, laminate pages, spiral binding and option of book on video.I highly reconmend the this book. Do not let the cost of the book be your deciding factor. By making this minor investment,it you come back to you in 100 folds. You will not be disappointed.
I love this book so much, that I bought one for my sister and one for my best friend. I though I knew how to cook haitian food but I was wrong. My first dish was the rice and beans and it was wonderful. I tasted just like the ones I used to have back home. The only haitian cookbook you need.
I have heard that some people may think that $49 dollars is too high, but I've paid higher prices for college textbooks that I did not appreciate as much.I've purchased all three of the Haitian cookbooks that are currently on the market and I love having all three. My mom is an excellent Haitian cook, but I have only recently began my journey at learning the unique style of Haitian cooking. I like to compare some of the technique I've recently learned from my mom, to those included in the book. Also my mom doesn't cook anywhere close to as many recipes as those include in the book. I love my mom's Soup Joumou, but I like that the book has other options.It's worth the money- especially since it is so unique.
THIS BOOK IS BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED BUT THE EXACT SAME RECIPES CAN BE FOUND IN A TASTE OF HAITI FOR A FRACTION OF THE COST.
This is by far the best Haitian cookbook I have ever had.It's a bit pricey but well worth it.The receipes use items found in supermarkets and are easy to follow.I have used it extensively and bought a couple as presents.Thanks Mona.
this is book was a fine example for haitian cooking there were pictures of the food being presented for some of the meals being prepared so that you can get a hint on how the dish should look like.its in detail about whats to be done next. the only thing i didnt like about it was the price i gotta admit the price is above the average cookbook.but in the end its well worth the dollars spent.
I am in love with this book. I am haitian (3rd generation) raised by my grandma. She has since moved to another country. So that wisdom that i used to have around me all the time is not so close. This book could never replace my grandma but its as if my grandma wrote it. Thank you to the author. For bringing wisdom back home
