Bring one of the most beautiful places on earth into your kitchen. The Dominican Republic is a melting pot. It's rich food culture that shows flavours of the country's history of occupations and immigrants. Influences of African, Caribbean, Latin, American and Middle Eastern flavours abound in rich dishes from pork to plantains to rice and beans. Bring the sun, sand and Caribbean into your home in a private virtual cooking class. Our chefs look forward to cooking with you.
