HAITI CHEFS CARVING OUT HIGHER PROFILE FOR COUNTRY’S CUISINE

Screen Shot 2017-05-28 at 11.28.00 AM.png A report by David MacFadden for the Associated Press. In a dining room in a wealthy district in the hills above Haiti’s capital, waiters in black outfits whisk plates of crunchy malanga fritters and a creamy cornmeal dish to well-off locals and tourists. In the kitchen, the chef ladles glistening, fresh conch into a pot as his staff dice tomatoes and watercress. Haitian cuisine is a spicy confluence of French, Spanish, African and Amerindian cooking traditions that blends indigenous ingredients such as the rich, earthy black mushroom known as djon djon with a variety of cooking techniques, crusted baguettes and flaky pastries. For decades, Haitian food has been seen as simple, hearty fare best simmered for hours over charcoal stoves at home or fried up and served in cheap curbside restaurants. Haitians who could afford a night out at a restaurant used to opt for versions of continental menus or a generic Caribbean fusion mimicking the food in island resorts. In recent years a new generation of Haitian chefs here and abroad has begun reimagining the country’s cuisine. Traditional delicacies such as the milky cornmeal beverage called akasan; the fiery carrot and cabbage condiment called pikliz; citrus-marinated chicken with boiled cashews; and whole fish in spiced broth are being prepared using haute cuisine techniques and served in the growing number of restaurants serving foreigners and Haiti’s small middle- and upper-class. “It’s a real exciting time right now for Haitian gastronomy. We have serious, bona fide culinarians who are creative and focused on raising the profile of our food,” chef Jouvens Jean said as chile-laced shrimp sizzled in a pan at Jojo Restaurant in Petionville. Accomplished chefs such as Jean and Stephan Berrouet-Durand moved back to their homeland from the United States, importing the presentation and kitchen know-how of the various countries where they’ve worked, while others are increasingly vocal ambassadors for their food culture overseas, appearing on U.S. and European cooking programs. Screen Shot 2017-05-28 at 11.28.11 AM.png “Suddenly, a lot of Haitian chefs don’t have this fear of saying ‘Haitian cuisine’ out loud. It is becoming a very popular thing,” said Georges Laguerre, a Miami-based food entrepreneur who ran a Haitian eatery in Los Angeles for over a decade. Dependence on food imports has grown as a result of intractable economic stagnation, but local favorites such as malanga root, chayote squash and a dark spinach are still grown organically on farmland plowed by oxen and maintained without pesticides or chemical fertilizers only because most farmers could never dream of affording them. The fact that Haiti has a vibrant food culture at all can be surprising to those who only associate this Caribbean nation with hunger and crushing poverty. But even through decades of decline and recurrent political turmoil, Haiti never lost its delicious recipes. “I think one of Haiti’s greatest resources is its food. I have yet to meet anyone who did not appreciate the flavors of traditional Haitian cuisine,” said Nadege Fleurimond, a Haitian-born writer and caterer based in New York City whose 2014 cookbook “Haiti Uncovered: A Regional Adventure into the Art of Haitian Cuisine “ helped kick-start a fresh look at the country’s recipes. Some beloved dishes have roots stretching back to Haiti’s founding on Jan. 1, 1804, following the world’s only successful slave rebellion. The vibrantly colored pumpkin soup known as joumou is a typical Sunday dish and a must on independence day for the world’s first black republic. During the dark days of bondage, plantation slaves in Haiti were prohibited from eating an aromatic squash soup — a favorite of their French masters — or much of anything else other than rudimentary provisions. “When we got our independence what better way to celebrate than to eat the very thing that we were unable to eat as slaves,” Fleurimond said. Haitian restaurants and food festivals are springing up in cities such as Miami and Montreal, where members of the Grammy-winning rock group Arcade Fire back a Haitian eatery that serves specialties like stewed oxtail over rice along with cocktails made from the country’s Barbancourt rum. One famed chef, Spanish-born Jose Andres, turned his culinary adventures around Haiti into a 2015 television documentary. In a culinary school in downtown Port-au-Prince operated by Andres’ nonprofit and the Haitian government, young people eagerly prepare for careers as the nation’s chefs and food-industry professionals, learning the basics of preparing dishes delectable to the eye as well as the palate. “Haiti has a rich culinary history, and we make sure we celebrate that in our curriculum,” said Andres, whose World Central Kitchen nonprofit is also working to rejuvenate the country’s fishing sector by investing in a new processing facility in the south coast town of Jacmel. A growing pride in Haitian food is apparent among aspiring chefs. “This is my country’s culture, and I want to show it off,” said 23-year-old culinary student Peraldine Alceguerre as she sliced juicy Haitian mangos to bake into a pie.

初衷

中學一直想要創業,大學畢業後和幾個朋友一起創業,開了餐廳,因為地理位置不佳,嘗到了失敗虧本的滋味。後來另起爐灶,賣掉了虧本的餐廳,和其他新夥伴一起創業,聯合成立餐飲集團,不停開創新品牌,也收購一些好的品牌。

餐飲業一做就是十年,雖然沒有大富大貴,但也算小有成績。對於餐飲服務的熱誠一直不減,不管多麼疲憊,只要服務客人的時候,眼神依舊散發炙熱的火焰。當肩上扛著業績、租金、薪資、員工未來成長和發展的煩惱,有時候小到員工的人事問題,那些瑣碎的事往往讓熱誠減半。或許這就像熱戀期的創業,一旦結婚後面對的經營管理就是柴米油鹽醬醋茶。開店的人都知道,地點一旦不對,虧損的從幾十萬到百萬都有。長期的創業和疲憊,健康每況愈下,生活品質也連帶受到影響。直到服用 AMWAY 安麗的營養,才重拾健康,也重拾自己的生活。

一直很排斥安麗,因為找我的人老是用欺騙的手法,加入前一直也很疑惑安麗是美國私人企業中排行前三十名的大企業,排名第29位 (圖一),在家用和個人用品方面則是第二大,僅次於 SC Johnson & Son ,在直銷行業則是龍頭老大第一名(圖二)。為何這些找我加入的人要躲躲藏藏? 很丟臉嗎? 人的行為常常在於內心的反射,需要躲躲藏藏和用欺騙的手段,因為心裡頭根本就不踏實,自信也不足,了解也不夠,因此才用這樣的方式。

創業的時候,我們以使命價值觀為本,用知識還有科學作為管理的基礎,在投入新產品菜色研發的時候,也閱讀許多相關資料,從食材產地到食物的營養價值等都一一考察,雖然很費時間,但至少對得起良心,因此才發展安麗事業的時候也不例外。

個人覺得你夠關心的事業,不敢你的學歷如何,你一定會想盡辦法找比你做得更好的人來參考,以及找各種資料和書籍來閱讀。就好比我們做餐飲的就找海底撈和鼎泰豐等等知名又評價好的企業來做學習的對象,當中也從中分析別人的排名和商業模式以及管理模式。

除了從外在的世界排名,到公司架構和組織,更從最根本的產品切入了解,才決定經營這份事業。安麗產品真的好,也幫助自己恢復健康和生活,在餐飲和安麗事業雙向發展中取得平衡。你並不需要放棄你原本的事業,只需要用下班後或者每星期的休假時間來從事發展和學習就可以了。這樣的事業比較適合我們這種忙碌的人,也沒有業績壓力,反而做得更快。

我覺得不管做甚麼事業都要有熱誠,沒有熱誠沒有態度,不要說在安麗事業麗創業成功,連打工都不可能做好。開一家店需要準備將近一百萬的資金,但在安麗創業你不必花費那麼對,僅僅是 RM90 馬幣即可開始這份事業。這當中當然要花錢投資在產品、時間,但不必像我們開店一樣需要龐大的資金,風險相對低。

每個行業有人成功,有人失敗,不是只做安麗才叫做成功,只是這是一個不同生活方式的選擇。不管是甚麼行業,都該有一份熱情去實踐自己的夢想。買車買房的夢想每個人都有,這並不俗氣,反而很平凡很踏實。但在這個資本主義的社會,你看到許多有車有房的人,但還有更多在底層辛苦的人不僅沒車沒房,連三餐都要發愁,而代理安麗銷售產品賺取多的收入或許是一個改變他們的機會。

在餐飲界,我們的起薪相對比同行高,但這並不足以改善所有員工的生活素質和幫助他們達到夢想,又或者說人的慾望永遠無法滿足,因此才存在創業這個名詞。打工的收入有限,而創業的收入由商業模式所決定,在安麗的制度中,要做多大和多快,由自己決定。 26 palabras más
