Suriname, Djon djon, Soup Jou Mou and more….what do these all have in common?  The Caribbean!
In this episode, host Paula Mohammed chats with Chef Mireille, a New York City based food and travel blogger with a diverse family background that spans the globe from India to Haiti. 

Mireille shares her unique perspective on international cuisine as she encourages listeners to traverse the cross-cultural landscape with her traditional recipes.
