What do you get when you combine six amazing Haitian Chefs, six delicious Haitian inspired dishes, a beautiful hostess and a captivating singer- an evening of perfection! We recently had the pleasure of attending the third installment of the Black Apron Event Tours – New York Edition. It was an evening of culinary delights and wonderful entertainment.
On September 30th, 2017 nestled in a trendy SoHo loft, our taste buds were treated to samples of six memorable dishes. We dined on Haitian Cuisine that ranged from a delicious Butternut Squash Soup with Garlic Confit and Coconut Milk to Creole Shrimp with Mashed Sweet Plantain and Shredded Coconut. Our culinary journey ended with an amazing Coconut Shredded Blanc Manje for dessert.
Host – Christie Desir

The Black Apron Event Tour is the brainchild of Chef Marc-Elie Lissade, who grew up on the Haitian cuisine he’s now showcasing to the world. The tour hits all major cities of North America and promises to be a Five Star gourmet experience. Young talented and innovative Haitian Chefs are brought together to satiate the pallet with gourmet French-Creole cuisine. The six course meal is sumptuous in flavor and definitely brings back warm memories and thoughts of Home. Each Chef is eager to showcase their culinary talents, promote Haiti’s magnificent culture and support the island’s gastronomy. The Chefs we met on Saturday evening exceptionally exemplify the event’s mission.
For those of you searching for a uniquely avant-garde culinary experience like no other, look no further than the Black Apron Event Tour. It’s a veritable treat with a modern and contemporary take on Haitian Cuisine.
A portion of proceeds from the event go to help Sick Kids Foundation. A cause dear to Chef Lissade’s heart.
