To taste Nikki’s Marinade is to partake in culinary decadence rooted in rich traditions that have been passed down and honored for generations. This palatable delight hails from the island of Hispaniola which was once known as the pearl of the Antilles. Occupying the Western half of the island, It was so named by the Natives to mean “Land of many Mountains”. Nikki’s family heritage is from Bainet which is a mountainous village in Haiti with sweeping views of verdant valleys dissolving into white sandy beaches.
How It All Began:
As innovations are often an outgrowth of necessity, Nikki’s Marinade was born out of a mother’s need to feed her family in the face of scarcity. It was in meeting this very present and existential threat that the first iteration of Nikki’s Marinade was conceived. Because of the Marinade, Nikki’s grandmother’s food garnered much praise and adulation from the community and she developed a loyal following that propelled her into prominence as a culinary sensation.
