On behalf of the CHTAEF-Haiti Project we thank profusely executive sous chef Mark Smith of Curtain Bluff who kindly organised a “Taste of Haiti with an Antiguan Twist” to raise funds for Haitian culinary students who survived the disastrous earthquake and are headed to Antigua to study at ABHTI in September 2012 – funding permitting.
