Haitian dishes are concocted with care and include natural spices that make them very delicious and renowned.
Haitian cuisine originates from several culinary styles brought by the Taíno Amerindians, the Spanish, the French, and the Africans when they populated the western portion of the island of Hispaniola from the pre-columbian era to Haiti's independence in 1804.
The Tainos left their staples, the Spanish carried their cooked green peppers, onions, tomatoes, garlic, the French brought their stews and soups, the Africans introduced okra, pigeon peas.
This multi-cultural heritage rendered a method of cooking that is traditionally based on natural spices and herbs, thus making the Haitian Creole Cuisine very delicious and renowned.
