Want To Cook Dominican Food?


Learning to cook dominican food is easier than you think. There are some secrets in dominican cooking that hide the flavor. Well, they aren't secrets if you, like me, use natural and fresh ingredients. I always try to give the best to my family and friends. What about you?

I love garlic, red and green bell peppers. I preffer white onions in my dishes because its flavor is softer and blends much better with other ingredients. And I really love cilantro and celery. They give so much flavor to our dominican food, more than you can imagine.

Tropical fruits play an important roal in our cooking. With them you can prepare so many tasty recipes. I love pineapple, papaya, mandarines, oranges, mango and other fruits in my dishes. They are great to cook different Dominican Republic recipes.

Many people think that dominican food is not as healthy (lots of fat), but with my dominican recipes I usually change the ingredients for low fat ones whenever I can. And, of course, I avoid lots of frying because baking is healthier. When I have to fry a food, I use just a bit of vegetable or extra virgin olive oil. As I said before, I like to give the best to my family. 


I hope you enjoy browsing around my dominican food recipes. Here you will find the dominican friendliness and our exquisite flavor. Be ready to learn my "dominican cooking style".
