Cookout tables may be where legends are made but there’s truly nothing worse than a picnic with bad food. This summer, save time and wow your guests with our official BLACK FOODIE WKND menu!
Summer is officially here which means it’s time to get back to cookouts with friends and family. If you’re a foodie, you probably picked up a few new recipes and skills in the kitchen during the pandemic — allow us to introduce you to three more!
These three condiments are savoury, tangy, and totally addictive. You’ll be the toast of the cookout when you dish up Ethiopian/Eritrean awaze, Caribbean green mayo, and Haitian pikliz to be used with everything from hot dogs to fries, burgers, and kebabs. The rich umami flavours in each recipe will keep your guests coming back for more, so don’t be surprised if they’re hangning around your kitchen at the end of the night looking for more.
Djon djon rice is to Haitians what gold is to royalty. Commonly known as “black rice”, it’s one of our most unique and delicious dishes. When the djon djon comes out, you know it’s a celebration.
Djon djon translates to “mushroom”, specifically those mushrooms grown in the northern part of Haiti. As a result, the mushrooms aren’t easily available for most folks so I like to suggest cooking the rice with a Maggi cube. The substitution is frowned upon by some but it does the exact same job in my opinion.
If there are a lot of Haitians in the area where you live, you might get lucky and find djon djon at a Caribbean market. Either way, this recipe delivers amazing flavor and once you make it, you’ll never want to eat rice & peas any other way.
This recipe takes a lot less time than the traditonal method, thanks to the use of a rice cooker.
