Judith Laguerre explains “often when people come back from visiting Haiti, they bring back some dried djon djon mushrooms in their suitcase. A local delicacy of Haiti, djon djon mushrooms can be found in Somerville’s very own La Internacional market in Union Square. This party starter is the star of the show; A dish that all other dishes revolve around. “When I make my riz au djon djon for a party, it is the first thing to go” say Laguerre. “If for some reason I don’t have time to make the rice, my friends will cancel their party!” Learn how to make this classic riz au djon djon haitian dish cooked with cloves, garlic, scallions, and herbs. Learn the proper “squashing” technique for making fried plantains; a staple for any proper Haitian meal. We’ll also discuss pikliz, the national condiment of Haiti. At the end we’ll sit down and enjoy a full meal that will be sure to heat you up even on the coldest day. Tickets sell out fast, get yours before the djon djon runs out!
