Heritage Month Part 1: Haiti’s Independence

January marks two important holidays for Urban Acorn co-founders Marie & Chef Daniel: Haiti’s Independence day & Robbie Burns day. Both will be commemorated, beginning with Haiti’s independence…

In 1804 Haitians won a revolt against Napoleons army, becoming the first independent black nation in the world. Every January 1st Haitians remember that triumphant day with family, friends and of course food!!!

Haitian food is quite unique and though it features many flavours from the Caribbean, it is the culinary techniques borrowed from the French that sets its food apart. Haitian food is island cuisine filled with warm notes and tangy flavours; it is not generally vegan (or vegetarian), however, we have done our best to presence the essence of these traditional dishes and infuse them with the same care and practices you’d expect to see in Haiti. We really hope you enjoy this special menu:


Introduction Course: Soup Joumou {Acorn Squash Soup with Coconut Milk, Cilantro and Noodles}.

Second Course: Raw Salade Russe tossed with Watercress, Peas and Shaved Ruby Beets served on Mais Moulin
Main Course: Aubergine and Choux Toufée {Eggplant & Cabbage Strew} served with Riz Djon-Djon {Mushroom Rice} and Ti-Malice Sauce and Plantain Chip
