DominicanCooking.com, and twin blog CocinaDominicana.com, are a collaborative effort from a pair of friends who share the love for the culinary in general, and Dominican Food in particular. We believe that our cuisine is rich, and that it ought to be promoted as healthy, varied and a reflection of our culture.
These sites were started in 2001 by Clara, Ilana joined-in in 2004. This is the sixth major redesign of our site during those years.
In 2005 our site was nominated to the Arroba de Oro Award to the best Dominican website in the category of Art and Culture. The following year, our sister site CocinaDominicana.com won this award. The same year we published our first cookbook, and in 2007 launched a new edition.
