Three-time Grammy Award winning artist, Wyclef Jean, will be honoured at the Chefs of Caribbean Celebrity Brunch to be held in Little Haiti, Miami.

The event, which is slated to take place next Saturday (May 20), will be done in celebration of Haitian Heritage Month, as observed in the United States.

Haitian Heritage Month recognises the rich history and culture of Haitians through showcasing art, culture, food, music, and more. The month-long celebration pays tribute to the Haitian community for their valuable contributions to South Florida.

The brunch is a signature event during Haitian Heritage Month. It is a culinary explosion of Caribbean inspired dishes prepared by multiple celebrity chefs and restaurants featuring delicious dishes, island-themed desserts, specialty beverages, and spirits.

Participating chefs from various Caribbean countries will pay homage to Jean for his philanthropic, business, and entertainment achievements.

Wyclef Jean’s contribution to raising awareness of Haitian culture is unprecedented. His success in music, business and his charity work are to be celebrated and we welcome him to Little Haiti.
