Departure’s Gregory Gourdet honors his heritage with an 8-course “Haiti In My Heart” dinner, the third in his Haitian dinner series, raising funds for the JA Clermont Foundation, a center for homeless children in Haiti
On Sunday, May 19 at 6 p.m., Executive Chef Gregory Gourdet teams up with Elsy Dinvil of Creole Cravings to present the third iteration of “Haiti In My Heart,” an 8-course Haitian dinner at Departure. The family-style meal, taking place the day following Haitian Flag Day, which signifies the creation of the Haitian Flag in 1803 after the Haitian people freed themselves from French slavery, highlights traditional dishes such as Boulettes, Poulet en Sauce, and Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Rum Raisin Ice Cream. Haitian-inspired beverages featuring spirits such as Rhum Barbancourt will also available for purchase. The event raises funds for the JA Clermont Foundation, a nonprofit center close to Gourdet’s heart which supports homeless children in Haiti. Guests can make a reservation by calling Departure at 503.802.5370.
