What is Voodoo haggis?
An amalgamation of both her Haitian & Scottish roots, Voodoo Haggis is a moniker for Toronto-based freelance writer and entrepreneur Marie Fitrion. Meant to invoke thoughts around the most well known and misunderstood parts of her heritage, Fitrion's writing is an exploration of the histories, memories, traditions, myths, urban legends, fables, idioms, media clippings and literary tales, aimed at highlighting the link between food, culture, community and communication.
As part of the BIPOC community, her works include narratives and stories that intersect race, feminist and queer identities.
By exploring food as a medium for communication, she aims to unlock the forgotten meaning behind our food lore. Every story has the ability to shape our popular culture and re-define our personal connections.
Food sustains the body... stories sustain the soul.
