The Dominican Kitchen cookbook’s launch celebration took place on May 2, 2023, at Puerto Viejo Dominican Bistro, where guests were treated to an evening of delicious food inspired by the cookbook.
The event was attended by a group of powerful mujeres caribeñas, who were eager to celebrate the essence of Dominican cuisine and culture. Thanks to our community sponsor, Ariana Rodriguez & Co, for always believing in this project and providing the support to bring us all together to celebrate. If you are looking for an OBM, Ariana is the best of the best.
The celebration featured a full menu of Dominican-inspired dishes sponsored by Tropical Cheese. The menu included dishes such as picadera Dominicana, chimi burgers, and pernil with yuca, as well as a selection of refreshing cocktails.
During the event, I got to share the inspiration behind the cookbook and my love for Dominican food. The celebratory atmosphere created a perfect setting for guests to mingle, eat delicious food, and share their passion for Dominican culture.
