Who’s Behind All This?
I bet that you couldn’t resist and had to find out who’s behind all this. Here we tell you that and other things you didn’t want to know.
DominicanCooking.com, and twin site CocinaDominicana.com, are a collaborative effort from a group 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 deserves to be promoted for it is healthy, delicious and the true reflection of our culture.
These sites were started in 2001 by Clara, Ilana joined-in in 2004. This is the fifth major redesign of our site during those years. Today thousands of visitors, Facebook friends and registered members and subscribers stop by every day.
In 2005 we published our first cookbook, and 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.
As of September 2007, with a new book edition, we became sponsors of Plan, a development agency that works in the Dominican Republic to educate mothers in depressed areas about proper nutrition. You can read more about it here, and also how you too can become a Plan sponsor.
Thanks to all the people who have supported us throughout these years.
