One of my favorite comfort meals is rice with sauce pois vert. I learned about this magnificent dish from the woman who would become my mother-in-law at the Haitian parties that she and my girlfriend Sandra’s father organized in the basement of St. Louis de France Parish in northern Toronto. They raised funds for an orphanage in Haiti through the parties. Local Haitian families would prepare chicken, salads, griot and other dishes in huge quantities and bring them to St. Louis on aluminum trays.
