Haitian Dinner in Echo Park (CHSC members)
Our first member dinner for 2016 is coming up! We cordially invite CHSC members to a Haitian dinner in Echo Park!
The cuisine of Haiti is one of the most distinctive in the Caribbean, and includes Spanish, French, and African ideas. For years TiGeorges Chicken has been the only Haitian restaurant in Los Angeles, but it will close for an indefinite period in the middle of April.
They will serve one last feast to us, to include acra patties, pikliz, seafood legume, griot, avocado wood roasted chicken, and the salted red snapper that is a traditional Easter dish. Chef Georges Laguerre (pictured) will come out between courses to explain Haitian festivals and food traditions, and we will finish the meal with his house-roasted coffee.
There will be a limited number of spaces for a kitchen tour and preparation lesson beforehand – this will begin at 2 PM.
Cost: $45.00 + small service fee, including tax and modest tip. See the Eventbrite link for tickets.
This event is for members only, but if you aren’t a CHSC member yet, don’t worry – you can get information on joining here: http://chscsite.org/membership/
