The cook is photogenic, so I watched the vid after seeing a different interview featuring her.Her smile makes her look like she's high. I didn't notice that the other host might not have liked the food, but I don't doubt it. In fact, you're right.she avoided eating part of the meal very diplomatically..hahhahah
Funniest part to me
host 2"how do I say that 'this food is amazing' in Kreyol ?"
host 1 "li bon" (it's good)
Lol yup, iirc the jamaican girl seemed more interested and enthusiastic about the chef's food.
Lesser Antilles is overshadowed by the big four, and I'm interested in knowing more about those places as well.
Interesting. I know that Haitians have traditionally traveled to Bahamas,Cuba,and D.R. for seasonal work, so I assumed that elements of those countries' food cultures have had an influence on Haitian food.
I didn't know that there was a large group of Carib diaspora in the Virgin Islands. You're saying that enough other islanders are there to have impacted/influenced local food culture?
Yup they're highly overshadowed. In some instances, the best from those countries leave for various reasons and have their accomplishments acknowledge there.
I know they're lots of Haitians in Dominica (commonwealth) and they have positively affected the economy there, as the only real difference is accent when amongst each other.
English speaking group of U.S islands between Florida and Guyana was destined to be a stop or easier access to America
At times when others who migrate to the U.S, others prefered the island experience, while working for/in the American Imperialism.
I went to school and lived amongst St.Lucians, Grenadians, Puerto Ricans, Trini's, Coolies, Santo(what locals call Dominicans not from DOminica W.I),
Vincy,Antigans, DOMiniCans, Native Crucians,Black Americans etc all on a island a tad bigger than DC(Speaking in regard to St.Croix).
Most people proudly represent their parents Islands but are unified under VI banner.
Pretty much all foods you can find across the caribbean, you'll find down there, with their own spin and local season twist to it.
