#596: Mountain Made Haitian cookbook (fwd)
I agree with Kim. Mountain Maid, Best Made, is a good Haitian cookbook. It
is compiled by Amy Wolff, Mountain Maid Self-Help Project, Box 1386,
Port-au-Prince (no date). I bought mine in l996. It is printed by G&R
Publishing Co., 507 Industrial Street, Waverly, Iowa 50677.
Another is Cuisine & Patisserie Modernes. It's in French, and is heavily
oriented toward desserts. Author is Gisele Denis. No publisher is cited. I
got it at Bon Nouvel in Rue Pavee last August.
I believe Murray or someone else was interested last year in putting a
Haitian cookbook together. What ever happened to that project? I think that
publishing company in Iowa or Mission Baptist should make it available to
book stores in the States, even other bookstores in the city. I don't see the
Mission Baptist books anywhere else.
