Global Ambassador for Chefs for Humanity
Owner of Brasserie Quartier Latin, Petion-Ville,Haiti
“Every one of us has the power to make a positive difference in the lives of our communities,” said Miriam. “No effort, however small, is minor and they all add up to the potential for great change. We will continue to look for ways to expose great projects that demonstrate the strength, talent and resilience of the Haitian people.”
Dedicated to promoting local arts and artisans, Miriam and her mother feature indigenous works of art in the restaurant and bring local musicians in to perform. Beyond great food and featured local artists, Miriam also provides space in Quartier Latin to several non-profit organizations to expose and sell their products, all in support of Haitian development. Featured products highlight the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of Haitian artists and artisans and have ranged from hand bags made from discarded tents, to fine jewelry to photographs and more. Miriam and her mother have also been actively involved in several initiatives to raise funds for the St. Trinity School of Classical Music and hosting a dinner to raise funds for a local non-governmental organization called BND in partnership with Chefs for Humanity.
