Caribbean food night

October 28, 2008 1 comment

CULTURAL FOOD NIGHT — Tonight was West Indies (Caribbean) Food Night, a combination of Bahamas, Jamaica, Haiti and Puerto Rico.  Lots of good food … some more spicey than others.  I hope I can remember all the food off the top of my head … here we go …

drink … Sky Juice (coconut + ?) … Bahamas
soup … Pumpkin soup … Haiti
meat … jerk chicken & beef … Jamaica
rice … yellow rice & beans … Puerto Rico
appetizers … great bread + (meat-filled baked pockets – look like empenadas)
plantains
dessert … Rum cake … wizardry of “Oz”

Great food!

 

Here’s some pics of all the work involved.  I helped Eric pack the appetizers with some origami techniques. 🙂
