Veni Mange

As a Cordon Bleu-trained chef, Allyson Hennessy outlined a creative Creole menu with an unusually scrumptious vegetarian choice of banquet. The authentic dish, callaloo soup, curried crab, oxtail and dumpling stew, West Indian hot pot with a variety of meat cooked in Creole style and vegetable lentil loaf with fruit punch form the main course. To top it with something sweet, pineapple upside-down cake is also prepared to make it a complete meal.
