We are a Danish-Dominican family. We are raising our daughter to appreciate both our cultures and foods. And while I may not have completely adopted Danish cuisine, and remain loyal to my beloved Dominican cuisine, I am a big fan of my husband’s home dishes. The same can be said of him. It usually works that way in mixed families.

And that is how we’ve stayed in business for nearly two decades.

We hear it all the time from our readers. They are looking to learn about their Dominican spouse’s culture. They want to learn how to cook it, how to enjoy it, and as much as possible about its origins and cultural significance. Because food is a huge part of everyone’s cultural identity.

For a food fan like myself, the journey has been in the opposite direction. I make a point of trying as much as I can when I am in Denmark, I have lots of books about traditional Danish cuisine and have learned how to cook some of them.
