This article is about the many wonderful dining experiences that can be had in Haiti. Fried plantains, crab cakes, cabrit (goat), and griot (crispy pork) are some of the dishes that can be found in the restaurants of Haiti.
This rare painting of a slave by Canadian artist François Malépart de Beaucourt, titled “Portrait of a Haitian Woman,” currently hangs at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. It is believed that de Beaucourt completed the work in Saint Domingue, the French colony that is now Haiti, in 1786, and that the woman in the painting was brought as a slave to Montreal in 1792. The portrait provides a brief glimpse into Canada's history of slavery. (Courtesy McCord Museum)
